Day 1: Begin of Tour Kuching (Sarawak) - Borneo Highlands Resort (L/D)
Borneo Highlands ResortMeet your personal guide at your hotel. Start the trip with a drive to the Semenggoh Wildlife Centre. Arrival at the main entrance will be approximately 30 minutes later. The Semenggoh Wildlife Centre was founded in 1975 to give endangered species like the orangutan, sun bears, and hornbills a sanctuary. Most animals living on the premises were rescued from captivity. They have to learn how to live from the forest and trainers help them to regain the knowledge. The orangutans can roam free on the 700ha area and come only to the feeding platform if they want. If they choose to visit the platform you can hear them coming from far away. The weight of male orangutans can reach 90kg. You can hear the leafs rustle and some of the smaller branches will break when an adult orangutan moves through the forest. After the feeding you may walk along the trails in the reserve. Continue to Borneo Highland Resort (approx. 30 min). At the gate you will be transferred to one of the resort shuttles. The last leg of the trip will take about 20 min uphill until you reach the main building. Check-in at the resort, meet your guide and proceed to the restaurant for lunch (vegetarian). Later in the afternoon depart for a trekking tour through the surrounding rainforest. It will take approx. 1 hour to reach the Kalimantan Viewpoint, from where you can see the Indonesian part of Borneo. Take your time and watch out for local birds and other species. Later return to the resort for dinner. After sunset go for a nightwalk in search for nocturnal animals. Overnight at Borneo Highlands Resort.
