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

Floating with klotok over the river and watching animals along the riverside was a pleasant experience. Meeting the orangutan was amazing! Our guide Toris Subaru was the best! His english is very good and he knew all the details about the orangutans in this national park and is a perfect spotter for birds, crocodiles, and other monkeys. We made a... 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

It was an amazing experience to see orang utan, gibbon, bekantan and boars in their nature habitat, and there were a lot more we can find under the shades of rainforest! Pitcher plants, birds, various mushrooms and trees to name a few. And crocodiles! What a fun way to spend long weekend. As to the agent, the boat was okay,... More

If you like nature, greenery and seeing animals and birds in their natural habitat this is the place to do it. Admittedly you need to be a bit lucky to catch sight of them but when you do it gives you a thrill. I low rated it not because of the program itself but for the poor conduct by the... More

I never been in such beautiful forest like tanjung puting national park. Our guide, Dian, knows the area very well. He even knows the name of ever single orang utan we met. Although the klotok boat we took is quite simple than others, it provides us with good meals and excellen t services. Perfect place to learn the nature

It is quite a long trip up the river but groups of different species of monkeys and other wildlife make it an amazing trip. we didn't have a mosquito issue but it was unbelievable humid and hot in mid-october. we were on a trip with the Orion cruise ship and this excursion was planned very diligently with great guides. the...
