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

Amazing trip in the jungle of Borneo. Our guide was very exceptional, he was born in Borneo and knew everything about wild life in the jungle, up to organize this amazing night trekking for seaching of tarentulas. 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
