As we were already up we decided we should take advantage of the early hour to visit the Orang-utans at the Semenngoh rehabilitation centre. Dressed like sister Mary from the convent ( this obviously refers to me not john)we hiked down to town to catch the shuttle bus from the Waterfront lodge. The park is about 45 minutes from Kuching set well back from the road. The rest of the area comprises botanical research gardens, although we didn’t have enough time to explore these as well.
The centre opens twice a day to enable people to see the orang-utans in their natural setting for an hour each time
The orang-utan trip only lasts three hours so we spent some time in town trying to catch up on the blog and downloading the photos. We then got completely soaked on the way back to the homestay and are now trying to dry out, so please forgive us if the pages are a bit soggy.
