The Golden Scope - Places to see orangutans in Borneo

In case you are wondering where Borneo is, it’s an island located in South East Asia, south of Malaysia and North of Australia.

Borneo is renown for its stunning rainforests, which are home to a large number of protected animals and plants.

The island is divided among three countries: Malaysia and Brunei in the north, and Indonesia to the south.

Today we are only concentrating on the Malaysian part, as that’s where all the best places to see orangutans are located!

If you are an animal lover, this kind of vacation is perfect for you.

Trekking in the jungle, discovering local villages and having a one-on-one meeting with a red, fluffy orangutan.

Sounds like a dream vacation to me, to be honest!

Anyway, to go back to the animals, The Golden Scope selected five places that are considered to be among the best to view orangutan.

Next thing you should do now, is picking the one you like the most and head down there to have a one-of-a-kind experience.

Semenggoh Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre

The Semenggoh Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre is 12 miles from Kuching, the capital city of the state of Sarawak.

The main purpose of this center is to reintroduce orangutans back into the wild.

Kubah National Park

The Kubah National Park is also located not too far from Kuching.

The park presents a center, called the Matang Wildlife Centre, which is nestled away in the forest, and is home numerous orangutans.

Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre

This center is situated in the state of Sabah. When there, visitors can climb up trees and feed orangutans.
