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

Tanjung Puting is absolutely amazing experience! Klotok is very romantic way of travelling with sun rises, sun sets, dinners with candles on the boat ... and no mosquitos! At least in April. The trip includes in general visit in two feeding stations, but don't expect a zoo ... it can happen that OrangUtans won't come to the station during Your... 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

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

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