Great trip on board a very nice local boat (Klotok). It is fantastic to sail the black river (name of the river in the national park) with all the comfort of a traditional, yet modern boat. Our boat was very clean, we lived mainly on the upper deck equipped with two hammocks, 2 sun chairs and a dining table. A... More

A little pricey but well worth it. I hired Siti (tanjung-puting.com) and she was amazing. Better to call/email and hire a guide directly than to give your money to a middle man. You will be doing so much good for the local community here!

Tanjung Puting is absolutely amazing experience! Klotok is very romantic way of travelling with sun rises, sun sets, dinners with candles on the boat ... and no mosquitos! At least in April. The trip includes in general visit in two feeding stations, but don't expect a zoo ... it can happen that OrangUtans won't come to the station during Your... More

My girlfriend and I visited Tanjung Puting national park with Jenie Subaru. We had our own boat (klotok). Our guide Herman had high enthusiasm and knowledge and was great company as a bonus. We got to see almost 20 orangutans on our trip and the memories will stay with us forever. We also saw lots of probiscus monkeys, macaques, river... More

We visited the national park with minimal expectations, considering it was the wet (low) season and we had hardly any experience of wildlife viewing in a tropical rainforest. Yet everything about this trip, from the warmth and kindness of people in Kumai (and our crew) to the mesmerizing natural surroundings, left us with a deep sense of attachment to this... More

I am Indonesian and went to Tanjung Puting to make a short documentary. This is one of my favorite place in Indonesia. I spent 2 days in klotok boat, exploring sekoyer river. On the riverside is full of plants, sometimes there are Macaca fascicularis sitting there while eating fruit, and sometimes you can see Bekantan or fromboscis monkey jumping around.... More

I cannot emphasise enough, the sensational time I had, with the most delightful bunch of people, whilst on this tour, the klotok, the boat boys, the cook and the knowledge, guidance and friendship from our guides, was exemplary. This is such value for money and I urge you all to pop it on your bucket list, you will not regret... More

We arrived in Kumai, spent a day in Majid's lodge before heading out on one of his boats to meet some of the most beautiful and endangered species on our planet - the Orang Utan (man of the Forrest). This national park pays tribute to what can be done to preserve those animals but only across the river you see... More

One of the highlights of my time in Indonesia. Spent 3 days on a lovely klotok boat, belonging to the majid hotel in kumai. The guides and crew were lovely and knowledgeable. Food delicious. We saw lots of orangutans and other animals. Very close too. But it never felt as if the animals were being bothered. Very clean as well.... More

Our visit was at the start of an 8-day Borneo to Bromo tour, superbly organised for us by Adventure Indonesia, and it was a brilliant way to begin! We spent 2 days and nights travelling up the Sekoyer River, staying on the top deck of a small klotok boat. Even though we went in the low season, which can be... More
