Overland transfer about 1 hr from your hotel to Matang Wildlife. The Matang Wildlife Centre is situated 35km from Kuching and located in Kubah National Park. This large enclosed area of rainforest is home to endangered wildlife. These enclosures will be located in the rainforest so that the living environment is rather similar to that found in the wild. An information centre and education programmes will provide visitors with further details on the Wildlife in Sarawak and the conservation efforts. The Matang Wildlife Centre is about 35km from Kuching.
There is a training programme here that teaches Orang Utans, who have been orphaned or rescued from captivity, how to survive in the wild. Visitors will be able to see lots of Orang Utans here, especially during feeding time. Besides these adorable primates, there are also Sun Bears, Sambar Deer, Civet Cats as well as three large aviaries that house Sea Eagles, Hornbills and other birds in Sarawak. Jungle trekking is also possible as there are four jungle trails here, the Pitcher Trail (takes about 2 hours), the Sungai Rayu Trail (about 3 – 4 hours), the Sungai Senduk trail (about 1 hour) and Sungai Buluh trail (about 2 hours).
Picnic spots, an information centre, accommodation facilities, a car park and a small canteen are available at the park HQ. Transfer back to your hotel after the tour.
