Dear all, I am planning to visit the Tanjung Puting National Park next August. I would love to arrange a klotok tour along the Sekonyer River (2/3 nights and ¾ days). Being a solo traveler I am looking for other travelers to share the Klotok. The dates I was thinking about are 11/17 august 2015. If anybody is interested, please... More

Stay here the entire 2 hours - we always saw a lot of orangutan shenanigans when King Tom came around!

In camp leakey you get a feeling for the beauty and the problems of the Kalimantan forests. Deforestation, bio diversity, beauty and destruction are easy to understand on a trip to Camp Leakey. The Orang Utans are the highlight of the camp visit, but there is so much more to it!! Highly recommended for every conscious traveler!!

We had to cancel b/c of illness, but we would like to hear from others who went -- how was the tip? the orangutans? the boat? the traveling on the water? the food?? everything. We were so sorry we couldn't go.

I am sorry but I was truly disappointed in Camp Leakey! The information huts were sadly in need of a good overhaul - the information notices were faded and looked very tired and worn. I had expected to see young orang utans being cared for etc etc. The feeding station was through the forest and visitors should be aware that... More

Dr. Birute Mary Galdikas has worked with orangutans here since 1971. We visited two feeding stations and were able to view several adult males and quite a number of females with their offspring. Accessed by klotok, the trip up river is also great for proboscis monkeys and lots of birds.

One of the original research sites for Orangutans. Photos with ancestry of Orangutan families. Good feeding stations for released and wild ones!

Camp Leaky was one of three spots we visited to see orangutans in tanjung Puting National Park. Though we loved them all, camp Leaky was where we had an incredible experience. After hiking through the jungle towards the feeding station, my wife and I were stopped wiping the sweat from our brows. We heard a loud shaking in the tree... More
