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

Amazing trip in the jungle of Borneo.

My wife who hate spiders was very greatefull for that. But first we had to book a flight to Pangkalanbun, that was absolutely... More

Our trip on the klotok was excellent. I would recommend going in the shoulder seasons when it's quieter and arrange a boat on arrival if you have the time staying a night either side in pangkalan bun. You will get small saving in cost but more importantly you will have 3 full days leaving at 8am and arrive back 8pm... More

Visited this national park to see orangutans in their natural environment.Travelling far into the park on a klotok is a very relaxing experience. You got to see a lot of wildlife proboscis monkeys, long tail macaques and many birds, hornbill, kingfisher etc. The main attraction though are the camps with the orangutans. Visited 3 different camps (one being camp leakey)... More

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
