LAKETOWN RESORT

 

Discover Orang Utan Island

 

A must-see at the Bukit Merah Laketown Resort is Orang Utan Island, the only Orang Utan sanctuary in Peninsular Malaysia that is home to 11 Borneo Orang Utans of different ages. These Orang Utans live and breed on the island as part of a rehabilitation and preservation programme in the forest on the island.   A short walk leads to a tunnel cage at the edge of the rainforest. Enter this cage and there you can see the Orang Utans climbing, swinging about and feeding on fresh fruit in their natural habitat. This is an amazing, unforgettable experience. From Orang Utan Island, visitors continue by boat to the Eco Park, where there are three main enclosure to house birds, primates and reptiles.

 

 

In the bird enclosures, colourful South American parrots will eat sunflower seeds from your hand, and you can come real close to the free flying birds, including parakeets, yellow canaries and white cockatoos from Australia. Among the primates in the next enclosure are gibbons, macaques and, peeping from among the bushes, numerous gentle squirrel monkeys that love peanuts.

 
 

In the last enclosure, the iguanas are crawling on the boardwalk looking for the best place to sun themselves. There is also a snake house. The entertaining Animal Show, staged four times daily, is another must-see and it features performances by parrots, raptors and hornbills. Not to be missed is The Skycycle, an elevated monorail through the tree canopy. The only way to move the bright yellow car is to turn the pedals with your hands! From the resort jetty, visitors take a relaxing10-minute boat ride on the calm and scenic 7,000-acre lake to Orang Utan Island. Waiting to greet visitors as the boat docks is Atan, a 7-year-old Orang Utan, with his handler.

 

Photos of Atan and the other Orang Utans adorn the walls of the waiting area by the island jetty. Here, you are at the same level as the treetops and looking down, you can see chickens, goats and deer on the ground. It is a fun way to explore the rainforest.   To get to the waterpark, the best way is the Chairlift ride that transports you high over the water park for some breathtaking views of the resort. This is the only such ride in Malaysia, and you can see the different water rides waiting for you to enjoy. There are 10 water attractions in Laketown Waterpark, and the newest ride is the V-shaped 'Boomerang', the only one in Malaysia and South East Asia, where riders slide down from a height of 35 feet.

 

The Giant Wet Bubble offers tremendous fun, as do the Tube and Body Slides, Lazy River and the Giant Wave Pool. Small children have their own fun pool. The fun continues in the Game & Shopping Arcade, where there are games with prizes to be won, video game challenges and souvenirs to buy. You can also experience guided jungle trekking by day or by night, go fishing and enjoy water sports and lake cruises.
