0745-0800 pick up from hotel. Located 24 kilometres from the centre of Kuching, the Semenggoh Wildlife Centre provides an excellent opportunity to view semi-wild orangutans in a natural setting. This orangutan rehabilitation centre receives orphaned or rescued orangutans and trains them to survive in the wild. Over 20 orangutans live in forest within the nature reserve and they often return to the centre to receive supplemental feeding. The feeding area is set in a natural amphitheatre where it is possible to observe the orangutans coming down from the surrounding forest for the food provided. The rangers provide a briefing on the purpose of the centre and the conservation objectives. Depart Semenggoh around 1000-1030 hours and travel by road for 30 minutes to Anah Rais longhouse village, located in the heart of the Padawan District. Explore this peaceful Bidayuh village set beside a beautiful stream and learn about the culture of the Land Dayaks. In former times, they were headhunters and in their baruk (headhouse) skulls can still be seen. There will be a chance to sample local products, including a glass of local wine before having lunch then returning to your hotel in Kuching.
