Remember when you were a kid and your favourite visit to the zoo included the orangutan exhibit? Then Tanjung Puting National Park is a must-see for you. Do yourself a huge favour and book a trip to Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo. Charter a riverboat from Kumai in Kalimantan Tengah and spend an amazing 3-4 days travelling up the Sekonyer River to...

This is an amazing, amazing place. You are literally walking with the orangutans in their own wilderness. It just doesn't get any more wonderful. There are only hundreds of these incredible animals on earth due to deforestation for palm plantations, toxic mine waste and logging. They are a treasure and deserved to be seen so people can tell others about... More

Unfortunately we went during the time when the locals burn all the fields etc so the smoke and haze really affects the area. Flights are often cancelled or delayed severely which can make it a hassle for you to get there, with a lot of waiting around. BUT ... Once you are there it's really worth it. The river that...

I have lived in Indonesia for three years now, and I must admit that I was a bit sceptical before my trip to Tanjung Puting. Before going I worried that it was hyped and overpriced. I can safely assure anyone with similar feelings that it is not. It is a trip to remember. The wildlife, the klotok, the sounds of... More

This has been my second time round going to Tanjung Puting. Although the park has instilled some additional regulations, e.g. only able to visit the park starting noon, it is still fun to go. Don't forget to request for a walk in the woods. The tour guide will explain about the animals and plants and make it really enjoyable. I... More

Believe me, this place is too special to go for a day trip only. You will get to see a real wildlife (often endangered species). The long-nosed monkeys, gibbons, crocodiles, monitor lizards, kingfishers and other amazing, sometimes bizarre creatures that you can spot from the board of klotok boat intensity the experience. You feel kind of connected with the surrounding... More

Last August, I went to Tanjung Puting National Park with my friends. I was such a wonderful trip for me personally.

In every spot,... More

This place should be on your bucket list. You get to see the orangutans in their natural habitat and help them survive by contributing to the park. These are mostly rehabilitated orangutans that are returning back to the wild in the safety of the park, where they are being fed and monitored but without this place looking like a zoo... More
