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

We took a Klotok up the river to Camp Leakey. I have never been in such awe of the natural wildlife and weather before in my life. I have never seen rain as heavy as what we encountered. The further we went up the river the more there was to see. The first wild Orangutan we saw gave me goose... More

This for myself and my husband was one of the highlights of our honeymoon in Indonesia. The sheer quantity of biodiversity found in the flora and fauna is simply stunning. We saw orangutans, macaques, gibbons, proboscis monkeys and many types of wildlife. Do bring binoculars, something we forgot to pack. Stay on a klotok and sleep under the stars with... More

Our tour operator - Adventures Indonesia - was super. The whole staff of the klotok was amazing. The park is nice, but it is extremely sad to see how abused it is. The gold mine up the stream sends sand all the way down the river changing its color (and ecology too). One morning we also saw gasoline rainbows all... More

It so natural place and rich of knowledge of nature.. We got to tanjung puting by Klotok, where we can sleep under the enclosed deck of the boat, on comfortable mattresses under mosquito nets, then wake up to the sounds of the Borneo jungle. Western and also Asian style breakfast served 3 times daily on Klotok. Whilst enjoying the river... More

Maybe one of the finest place in the world to see orang-utans in the natural environment!!! You gently cruise along the river through the rain forest and have excellent possibilities to watch these unique characters....must see!!!
