Your day-by-day itinerary
Semenggoh Orangutan Centre
This morning, after breakfast you’ll visit Semenggoh Rehabilitation Centre, a short drive away. Here you’ll see the feeding of orang-utans. Semenggoh is a temporary home for various endangered wildlife of Sarawak, especially orang-utans that have either been orphaned or rescued from captivity. Here, they’re trained in all the survival skills for them to venture out into the wild and fend for themselves. This tour to Semenggoh is arranged for the morning to correspond with the feeding time of the orang-utans.
Arrival in Kuching (Damai Peninsula)
Next, you’ll be transferred to the Damai Peninsula. Here you’ll be staying in a unique property set in the rainforest, just next to the beach.
You’ll experience the sounds of the jungle, and also of the lapping waves from the sea. Best thing of all is that you’ll be staying in a tree-house!
If the tree-houses aren’t available there are also cabins as an alternative.
Santubong Wildlife Cruise
This afternoon, you’ll be transferred from your hotel to the Santubong Peninsular. You’ll board a boat and cruise down the Santubong River where Irrawaddy dolphins are often sighted. From there you’ll cruise the mangrove-lined rivers and estuaries looking for wildlife, including Proboscis monkeys. Groups of these unusual looking monkeys are often seen along the river’s edge. As the light fades, you’ll look out for fireflies and crocodiles. You’ll also get to admire the sight of the fireflies lighting up the sky, before being transferred back to your hotel.
Departure from Damai Peninsula
This morning you’ll have your breakfast, then it’s soon time to check out and head onto your next destination. If you like, you can take a last minute walk down to the beach and take in the views of the majestic Mount Santubong.
