Practical Info

The reserve is located 14.9 miles (24 km) south of Kuching, and takes about 40 minutes to reach by car. While the No. 6 bus line from Kuching can take you close to the destination, most guided tours of the reserve include round-trip transportation from your hotel accommodation. The reserve is open every day from 8am to 5pm, but the best time to observe wild orangutans is during the morning or afternoon feeding sessions at 9am and 3pm. Sightings are never guaranteed, and during the fruit season when natural food is plentiful, orangutans may not appear at all.

Occasionally, an orangutan might approach visitors at the reserve headquarters. Keep in mind that should this happen, you should keep at least 20 feet (6.1 m) between you and the animal; touching, feeding, or making any other direct contact with the animal is not permitted.
