About
Nestled in the heart of Indonesian Borneo, Tanjung Puting National Park beckons adventurers with its lush rainforests, meandering rivers, and diverse wildlife. A boat tour through this iconic national park offers a unique opportunity to immerse oneself in the natural beauty and biodiversity of the region. As one of the largest protected areas in Southeast Asia, Tanjung Puting is renowned for its population of critically endangered orangutans, making it a must-visit destination for wildlife enthusiasts and nature lovers alike. The park's dense tropical forests provide a sanctuary for these magnificent creatures, along with a myriad of other wildlife species, including proboscis monkeys, gibbons, and exotic bird species. Embarking on a boat tour along the park's winding rivers, such as the Sekonyer River, allows visitors to traverse deep into the heart of the jungle while enjoying panoramic views of the surrounding landscape.

    Jenie Subaru House boat tour is the best!
    Myself & husband did a 4 night 5 day tour with Jenie Subaru houseboat and tour company. Iman was our guide and he is so knowledgeable and he also takes the best photos! He knows everyone along the way. I cannot say how wonderful all the crew were, food was great. We did the houseboat tour just the two of us and managed to do some extra trekking to see more animals than is usual for the most of these tours. We saw orangutans, probiscus monkeys, gibbon, so many colourful and endangered birds too! Amazingly we saw a monkey (long tailed macque) swim to our boat! We also saw thousands of fireflies at night it was like a fairy land! I really support their mission to save the National Park and species that live there. Thanks Jenie and Iman for a fabulous trip!

    Don't worry about sleeping on deck, it's way less rough than I expected
    Absolutely worth taking 2 nights on a klotok. You will seldom have the opportunity to sleep on a deck so close to the jungle. We booked through Tari travel,a private klotok for 2 with an amazing cook and crew. We saw both wild and semi wild orangs, utangs, fresh water crocodiles, lots of proboscis monkeys and huge butterflies. The jungle sounds from the deck from under the klamboe are somehow soothing. Don't be afraid of the conditions,they work out well. We even had clean freshwater to shower.

    10/10 trip with plenty off wildlife and vegan friendly
    10/10. We had an amazing trip. We saw plenty of wildlife including urangutan. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. The rest of the crew was also friendly and very skilled. We are vegan and this was no problem for the chef. We had a variety of vegan food which were all delicious. Sleeping on the klotok is an experience we will not forget. The boat crew will provide a mosquito net so you will feel safe during the night.

    Aria is the best !!!!
    The experience was incredible. Aria (+62 822-3448-8428) is an excelent guide, the taxi was waiting for us just in time of landing, and they welcomed us with coffee and water. The boat was on so good conditions and the food was so nice. The excursions were amazing and the night treking was so scary. I would definitely contact Aria again, we even saw crocodiles!

    Great experience in Tanjung Puting with Liesa and team
    We hired the services of Liesa Borneo Tanjung Puting. Liesa and her team were great. We had a 9 hours delay due to the flight to Pangkalanbun and Liesa gave me a very good option to compensate this lost of time of a 2-day tour in a klotok. Budi our guide was very dedicated to us trying to get the most of the experience. It was really wonderful to be in the reserve, navigate through the jungle, sleep in the klotok and of course see the orangutans and even interact with one of them. Many thanks to Liesa and her team. This was an unforgettable experience.

We chose Jennie Subaru to help set up a 3D/2N houseboat tour for our family and it proved to be the right choice! Jenie is a very reliable and long running guide who owns a few boats with himself and the entire family works together and goes all the way to make this a very special experience. We are a family of 4 with two children of 12 and 15 and our local guide Dani (Jenie’s cousin) found the perfect balance of guiding us around the incredible world of the Orang Utahns and letting us relax on the boat. We would totally recommend Jenie’s organisation, especially since by choosing him you also contribute to the local community. In addition to organizing the tours, Jenie is making a huge effort to invest in buying land along the Park’s border to support the very needed protection of the Orang-Utan’s habitat. @jenie - we wish you all the best for the future!

We booked our trip through Aria Prasetio from Borneo Orangatung viaje. His WhatsApp number +62 822-3448-8428. Our tour was fantastic, Anwar was our guide, and he was great. In the 3 days we say at least 32 different orangatungs. On two different encounters they past right by us and we could almost touch them. It was great just to sit and watch them. The boat was great, we had a smaller boat than most and it was great. The food was plenty and very tasty and varied. There was a western style toilet and clean water shower. There were no mosquitoes on the boat when we were there, there was however a few in the national park at dusk and dawn though. We also saw a hundred or so proboscis monkeys at dusk swinging from treetops. Thanks Anwar and Aria.

We, a couple of 2 seventy two year olds,went to Sekonyer river, Indonesia to look for first of all Orangutangs in Tanjung Puting National Park. The trip included a 6day 5 night journey in a Klotok boat with trekking inside the National Park. This is one day longer than the longest organised trip on the river, but Liesa,the organizer of the trip, talked us into it, and we got value for our money. Our guide was Aria Prasetio, a most cunning man with eleven years of experience in the rainforest. With him we experienced the life of Orangutangs, we saw about 30 in all ages at the feeding stations, and 3 that was not born in captivity/wild living. The last category we saw from the KLOTOK- boat, where Aria could point out groups of proboscis monkeys and the more common makak monkey. Also the birds and the insects was pointed out, Aria found as an extra prize a stick insect, the largest insects on earth. This Walking stick could compete in size with the one found in 1989 in Saba, being about 50 cm in length.
So we are very happy about the trip, that became unique because of our guide.

Me and my husband absolutely loved our day on the boat! All the staff were incredibly lovely and so considerate. They constantly went above and beyond and were always smiling too :-)

They cooked us up the most fantastic feast! Some of the best food we'd had in Indonesia.

They were all so knowledgeable on the wildlife in Borneo. Which was great for us, as we had lots of questions :-)

We got so lucky on our trip. Not only did we get to see the incredible Orangutans, we also saw Proboscis Monkeys and 2 Saltwater Crocodiles!!
Plus tons of beautiful birds and butterflies.

If you are a fan of nature then this is definitely the tour for you!

We absolutely loved it! :-)

Thank you all again, so much!

This trip has been amazing and we will remember for the rest of our lives.

Aria (+62 822 3448 8428) is a guide with more than 10 years of experience and he has planned everything for us.

Aria has been really proactive when looking for animals in the jungle and giving insights. His team also is very friendly and has a great cook.

Thank you!

Travelling up the Sungai Sekonyer River on a private Klotok was an immensely pleasurable way to spend a couple of days. Whilst the object was to make it to the 3 camps for feeding time, for me the highlights encounters happened away from the platforms. When doing wildlife trips it's always a risk that you won't see any, however we spotted our first Orangatan with minutes of our arrival at the first camp, and lost count of the numbers seen there after. Watching the nibble Gibbon fly across trees and also a highlight. We also saw Proboscis monkeys, macaques and crocodiles, who also make thrir home in the park. A true highlight of our Indonesia trip.

The reason I haven't given this trip 5 stars is because after leaving camp Leaky the trip kind of finished. We rushed off back down the river at full speed, flying past all the monkeys gathering for the evening (all my photos from this point were blurred). It's billed as a 3 day trip, but actually they want you back in Kumai by 8am so they can take the next group out at 10am. The trip may actually span over 3 days but was less than 48hrs for which we paid 7.2m rp. As a Freshwater Biologist I also have concerns about the sustainability of these tours. Tour operators need to get together to do things better for the future.

We did a 4 day - 3 night cruise as the last leg of our 2 week trip to indonesia. We found the experience very relaxing: sleeping on deck with the sounds of the jungle, enjoying the great food that was provided... going back to a simple way of living! The daily excursions into the national park brought us very close to the (semi-wild) orangoutans during feeding time.

I would highly recommend this family buisness to visit the park, the owner (Jenny) is a very friendly character who immediately made us feel welcome and put us in the very capable hands of jungle lover and expert photographer Iman, our guide.

we booked a 4d3n klotok tour with Mrs Liesa Tanjung Puting and it was the very best choice to start our vacations. 3 full days or real relax to live and experience the amazing jungle and its sounds, smells and unique colors.
Anwar, our guide was simply perfect , I'd recommend to ensure that he'll join your tour.
He speaks very good english and is very friendly and professional at the same time.
thanks to our chef I could be the cook assistant for a night and try to learn how she was able to prepare the delicous food we cold eat very day.
We were lucky to see Jacob at the platform, a huge male that didn't want to share the food with the other fellows
