We had an amazing experience. Although it was banana season, we saw a lot of oerangutangs at the platforms. The klotok (boat) on the river made it special and we felt like the only ones one the river. Romantic and adventurous.

This amazing place is probably one of the largest orangutan sanctuary on earth. You can see friendly Orangutans everywhere. When our boat reached the camp, "Siswi" the orangutan queen was waiting for us at the dock. Although she is quite friendly with male humans (i would even say she is quite flirty to man), ladies should stay cautious as female... More

We (my partner and I) had a really good time in Tanjung Puting and can recommend this trip to everyone interested in nature. We saw orangutans, gibbons, macaques, crocodiles, all kinds of birds, insects and much more in their natural environment. The trip was very relaxed, no rush, with plenty of time to explore the jungle. Our local guide Jenie... More

Tanjung Puting National Park is one of the wide habitat for Orangutans. Going deeply to the jungle by boat/kelotok, we can see, actually not only a wild orangutan but also a dozen wildlife. Birds flying accross the river, swiflet forraging insect around the river, some hornbills perching in the top of canopy, kingfisher flying infront of your boat, crocodile busking... More

We spent 4 days there and loved every minute of it. What a beautiful place. We saw many orangutans, proboscis monkeys, bird life and butterflies. We traveled into the park down the river by klotok and had a wonderful crew who looked after us so very well. I highly recommend this place and the more who embrace eco tourism the... More

For me, this place is good to heal my mind, place that make me still human. Recovering my busy mind with just looking the nature surrounds me. Is really breathtaking. I love you Borneo, Indonesia. Proud that i am part of you :*

My wife and myself start our Indonesia trip in Kalimantan's Tanjung Putting National Park by the end of past June; although the rest of the journey in the other islands was great, both agree the days we spend in the National Park were the most extraordinary experience. Orangutans, proboscis "long nose" monkeys, macaques, water snakes, crocodiles, kingfishers, nice sunsets, nights... More

Via the slow boat (klotok) we slowly entered the jungle to see the orangutangs. Not only the orangutangs were an attraction but also the nights under the mosquito nets on deck of the klotok. All the noices and sounds of the jungle coming to you. Food was very good on board and friendly people. Seeing the jungle passing by slowly... More

We explored this via klotak boat with the company Borneo Wildlife Tours. They were very professional and organized in their communication. They were also able to help us book our flight from Surabaya to and from Pangkalan Bun. The accommodations were basic, but more than enough and the food was excellent. The orangutans are the reason you go and they... More

We accessed the park by slow boat up the river which gives you lots of time to marvel at the density of the mangroves lining the shore and to spot the various monkeys in the trees as well as the very colorful Kingfisher. We went ashore at an orangutan feeding station where after a heavy rainfall we had to gingerly... More
