The highlight of the tour is to observe the young orang utans come down from the trees to be fed. Although physical contact is not allowed, you can take as many photos as you like from a short distance. After the feeding time, you can proceed to have a short visit to the Information Centre where photos and exhibits are on display. Here, you can learn more about these endangered animals.
The rehabilitated animals are to be released back into the wild once they are independent and able to find food for themselves. The main goal of the Semenggoh Wildlife Centre is: “To rehabilitate confiscated wildlife that have been incapacitated or handicapped due to prolonged captivity by humans, with the objective of releasing them to the forests eventually.“
