Borneo - Sarawak

 

The Capital of Sarawak, Kuching is a rather charming and visitor friendly city which if not quite captivating is at any rate the most attractive city in Borneo, having avoided being bombed in the war.

For many though Kuching is just the gateway to the nearby Bako National Park, to Semanggoh Orangutan Sanctuary and for visits to the jungle interior and overnight stays in one of Sarawak's longhouses.

Nevertheless, spending an afternoon wandering the lanes lined with Chinese shophouses or perhaps taking an evening cruise along the Sarawak River will still evoke images of the Rajah Brooke and colonial times.

The Sarawak Cultural Village is certainly worth a visit and the Sarawak Museum is excellent.

Semanggoh Orangutan Sanctuary

The Semenggoh orangutan rehabilitation centre is 24 km from Kuching and trains orphaned or rescued orangutans how to survive in the wild. Over 20 orangutans live in forest within the nature reserve and often return to the centre at feeding times.

Depart your hotel at around 8:15 am. On arrival at Semanggoh, head to the briefing area for an introductory talk about the Rehabilitation Centre. After a brief talk from the rangers, take a short walk along a trail to the feeding area to watch the orangutans come down from the trees for a free meal.

This tour to Semenggoh is arranged to coincide with the morning orangutan feeding time, which takes place between 9 and 9:30 am.

Although it is very likely that orangutans will be seen, they are in a semi-wild environment, so sightings cannot be guaranteed.

The various types of animals commonly spotted at Bako include proboscis monkeys, silver leaf monkeys, long-tailed macaques, wild boars, monitor lizards and numerous species of birds.

Forest types range from mangrove to kerangas (heath forest), tropical swamp vegetation, cliff vegetation and beach vegetation.

Kuching

For many though Kuching is just the gateway to the nearby Bako National Park, to Semanggoh Orangutan Sanctuary and for visits to the jungle interior and overnight stays in one of Sarawak's longhouses.

Nevertheless, spending an afternoon wandering the lanes lined with Chinese shophouses or perhaps taking an evening cruise along the Sarawak River will still evoke images of the Rajah Brooke and colonial times.

The Sarawak Cultural Village is certainly worth a visit and the Sarawak Museum is excellent.

Mulu National Park is one of the highlights of a Tour of Borneo, with some of the world's largest and most spectacular caves.

Gunung Mulu is Borneo's second highest mountain and in essence, Mulu National Park is a hollow mountain range, with huge limestone caverns and some of the oldest rainforest in the world.

The Sarawak Chamber was only discovered in 1984 and was until recently the largest known cave in the world.

A trip to Mulu National Park usually involves one or two nights at the Mulu Marriott, with visits to each of the 4 main cave chambers.

Trips further afield to the Pinnacles can involve multi-day treks and are a real challenge for the adventurously inclined.

Miri is an oil town (the birthplace of Shell) on the northern coast of Sarawak and is the gateway for visits to the Niah National Park and also a transit point for many flights into nearby Mulu National Park.

To pause in Miri offers not only the chance to visit spectacular Niah Caves but also to enjoy some diving or just relax by the sea.

Niah National Park is the real attraction though, just 45 minutes from Miri.

Miri is also the starting point for more adventurous off the beaten track journeys in Borneo up to Bario and the Kelabit Highlands.
