Private Orangutan and Charcoal Factory with Lunch

  • Penang Island City Center (Hotel Pickup)

Description

Travel to Bukit Merah via the 25 km long Penang second bridge, to see and observe the natural habitat of orangutans living in a small island. These primates are orphans undergoing rehabilitation for future release into the wild. They are friendly to visitors who are separated by a large cage tunnel which makes it appear as if the humans are under captivity while they roam freely on the island. Stop for lunch, and on the way back pass the Taiping Lake Gardens and visit the nearby charcoal factory to witness the interesting process of transforming mangrove wood into charcoal.

We would have loved to have spent more time on the Orangutan Island and not have had to do the rest of the tour. We had no interest in the Charcoal factory but had to go as a means of seeing the Orangutans. We did have a great driver who gave us lots of his local knowledge throughout the day.

We had a great trip with a very informative driver/guide. It was approximately an hours drive from Penang. The orangutan sanctuary is situated on an island and to get there you take a ferry taking about 5/10 minutes. It was wonderful to see these amazing creatures at such close proximity, we are in a caged walkway and they free to roam their designated area in the island.Only complaint was that I wish we could have stayed little longer (probably there about 3/4 hr.) rest of day was interesting with trips to area of rain forest; beautiful park area with huge rain trees; production of charcoal and a very good lunch at a Chinese restaurant. Would recommend.

Great experience, the tour guide was excellent and new his stuff. Lovely lunch provided and were very accommodating for people with special dietary needs. The only disappointment was the rubbish left around the chalets along the mangrove walk. Also if mangrove walk is a tourist area they really need to fix the board walk as it is very rickety and uneven.
