Tanjung Puting Orangutan Tour

Tanjung Puting National Park is one of the best places for Borneo Orangutan encounters. The Tanjung Puting tour also offers an opportunity to see others wild animals endemic to Borneo such as proboscis monkeys, couscous, gibbons, macaques, and many species of birds. You will also enjoy the rainforest of Borneo to the fullest, right from the houseboat or locally called as Klotok, a local boat which has been designed for tourism purposes. If you’re not comfortable sleeping on Klotok, there is an option to sleep in the lodge, which is located within the national park. (Additional charge will be applied)... more info

OVERNIGHT: 


For overnight, we will stay on traditional wooden boat for the whole night to make the price is COMPETITIVE and you have MORE OPPORTUNITY TO EXPLORE WILDLIFE.  The accommodation on the boat provides us a better opportunity of sighting the crocodile, birds, monkeys and other animals at dusk or down at their night time resting place in the trees at the riverside. In the morning you will be waked up by the morning dew and "the concert of tropical rain forest creatures". A healthy meal for dinner and Breakfast is prepared by our expert cooks on Indonesian cuisine. You will explore the quiet and placid river on a traditional boat (many past tourists of us call it "African Queen" river boat style) to visit the Camp where you can trekking around in searching for orangutans as well as other endemic species of Kalimantan and other exotic fauna and flora. There are showers and western style toilet available on board.  

 

Meanwhile, there is a riverside lodge across the river near Tanjung Harapan. This place allows you to have a nice sleep and good wash for the whole days. The river side has a very nice surrounding with the forest background, a lot of faunas to see and observe too. You will get additional charge based on the type of the accommodation you choose in the lodge if you decide to stay here. So if you prefer to stay overnight at the ecolodge, no problem… We can include it in the quotation below. Just take into account, the price is expensive for such standard lodge, because this is the only lodge available there. OR You can also combine for sleeping on boat for 1 night in between, so you can have more experiences to enjoy the home of the Borneo orangutans.

“Orangutans play an important role in the forest as effective seed dispersers for forest regeneration. By saving orangutans, we save our invaluable forests, precious forest resources and a plethora for biodiversity. Humans need clean water, oxygen, and other ecological services which forests provide to prevent natural disasters and mitigate climate change.”  BOS Foundation CEO, Dr. Jamartin Sihite
