Great trip with orangutanhouseboat.com. Fardi really understands how to service his customers. Best food in 4 weeks of indonesia. Camp Leakey could be more restrictive tool the behavior of visitors to ensure good balance between tourism and preservation. Great experience!!

Incredible close up look at some of the last remaining orangutans in the world! The apes live a wild existence but, because of being rescued from the palm plantation burn clearings or shootings, they had human exposure so are more curious than purely wild ones. Guides are all knowledgeable and also protective of you in case the wonderful creatures get... More

A special memory for my husband and me was a visit to Camp Leakey set up by a woman student of Leakey’s, Dr. Galdikas, who devoted her life to doing research on the orangutans. Upon arrival at Leakey camp, there sitting on a fence on the dock was a female orangutan holding her little baby -- Peta and Peter. It... More

The people at Camp Leakey do an amazing job of researching one of our closest relatives – and of making sure that rehabilitated orangutans adapt well to living in the wild. Visiting the feeding station where the huge alpha male Tom rules is an unforgettable chance to get close to Orangutans in their own habitat.

Camp Leakey is a really good place to read about the ongoings of the orang-utans and the threat that they are facing. Do not miss this site when you visit Tangung Putting National Park.

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!!
