This place should be on your bucket list. You get to see the orangutans in their natural habitat and help them survive by contributing to the park. These are mostly rehabilitated orangutans that are returning back to the wild in the safety of the park, where they are being fed and monitored but without this place looking like a zoo... More

We went to Tanjung Puting in September. There are horrendous problems with smoke from constant fires from slash and burn for Palm oil production. We found it difficult to breathe, our eyes and respatory system were severely stressed. Furthermore, it is outright dangerous for small jets and planes to attempt take off and landing in this severe haze/smoke. This haze... More

3 friends and me spent 3 days and 2 nights in a Klotot navigating Sekonyer River and visiting Camp Leakey and Tanjung Puting National Park. Our experience was awesome and unforgettable thanks to Edy Aja and Arifin (visitborneoorangutans@gmail.com), who took care of us everyday. Meals were delicious and the boat really nice. I wish I can come back any time... More

It is an amazing experience seeing the magnificent orangutans in their natural environment. You get to see both the wild and rehabilitated ones in the park. Besides the orangutans you see plenty of proboscis monkeys, macaques, reptiles and birds. We were however surprised by how bad the plantation fires were this year. Due to the El Niño effect the fires... More

I stayed at Rimba Lodge at night and had a klotok (boat) during the day. All my activities were river based except for short walks to the orang-utan feeding stations at the rehab centres. The rehab centres provided me with the best view I had of orang-utan for my entire 3 week visit to Borneo. The food and guide that... More

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity not to be missed if you are in Indonesia. The orangutans come to feeding platforms where food is placed at specific times so tourists can view the orangutans. I still marvel that I have actually seen them in a natural setting when photos pop up on my screensaver. Watching them come to... More

With the whole family (two young kids) we went on a traditional boat through the little rivers of this national park. Seeing Orang Utans, Crocks, Gibbons, Proboscis monkeys and lots of other wild live. Learning about the rain forest, deforestation, the habitat of the apes and just enjoying a wonderful experience on a boat. Very recommended.

We had a great trip to Tanjung Puting National Park with Orangutan Voyage! Everything was perfectly organised. Our guide Yusup picked us up at the airport and took us right to our "klotok". There we met the whole crew and also Aidi, the owner of Orangutan Voyage in Kumai. They were all very friendly and courteous. The food was fantastic... More
