Orangutans (pongo pygmaeus pygmaeus sp.) living free at their natural home at Camp Leakey, Tanjung Harapan and Pondok Tanguy stations at Tanjung Puting National Park. You can do trekking around rehabilitation centers for an encounter with the orangutans and the other endemic species of Kalimantan. In the peaceful afternoon, we cruise the river to watch the proboscis monkeys, birds and other wildlife animals playing in trees he riverbanks while you enjoying your afternoon tea in the roof of the boat.
Many of past clients call this is a "magical trip". We will take you to meet one of the human's closest living relatives in animal kingdoms: Orangutans inside the misty rain forest surrounded by proboscis monkeys, macaques, gibbons, birds including the giant hornbills and other exotic flora and fauna. You will explore the quit river on a traditional boat ( "African Queen" river boat style) and having some short walk around the stations.
Overnight will be in Rimba Lodge or on the 2 x 6 meter wide boat with simple toilet, clean mattresses, pillow, mosquito net, healthy meals, water available on board, in order to get better change to watch the animals' activities in the early morning. The boat forms a roof and accommodate for 4-5 people. You can sleep on it or inside the boat separated with the guides and the boat crews.
We also suggest you to spend 01 night (or more) on the boat for 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 meals for dinner and breakfast is prepared by our expert cooks.
