Day 2 Kuching – Morning Semenggoh Orangutan Tour – Rainforest World Music Festival
Meet with the guide at 08:00 in the hotel lobby and depart for the 45-minute transfer to Semenggoh Orang Utan Wildlife Centre. Established in 1975 and just outside Kuching, Semenggoh Nature Reserve is home of many orangutans. For over 20 years, the wardens here trained young orangutans, who had been orphaned or rescued from captivity, how to survive in the wild. It is now a centre for the study of orangutan biology and behaviour and is the primary reason that people visit the Semenggoh Wildlife Centre. However, the rangers also do work with other species including crocodiles and hornbills. At 09:00, arrive at Semenggoh for the first feeding of the day. Take a short 15-minute walk through the rainforest to the feeding platform where the rangers will be put fruits out for the semi wild orangutans, who spend most of their time roaming the forest but frequently come back to the centre for a free meal.

In the late morning, return to Kuching.

The oldest of Sarawak’s national parks, Bako offers the perfect introduction to Sarawak’s forests and wildlife. Bako is also home to 275 rare proboscis monkey, found only in Borneo. Observe the fabulous proboscis monkeys, silvered langurs, bearded pigs and monitor lizards. Despite its seemingly small size, Bako contains a wide range of vegetation – swamp forest, scrub-like padang vegetation, mangrove forest, dipterocarp forest, delicate cliff vegetation and beautiful sandy beaches.

Explore the rainforest on a variety of walking trails from mighty 80-metre dipterocarps to dense mangrove forest. For bird enthusiasts, Bako is the home to many species such as the rufous-backed kingfisher, stork-billed kingfisher, red-crowned barbet, white-bellied woodpecker and many more. During low tide, observe the mudskippers and blue-fiddler crabs coming out from their hideout for feeding on the beaches.
