Few reasons why visiting this park was a superb experience: 1. You get to see so many orangutans from so close and they are amazing creatures -- so similar to humans! The look in their eyes is touching. You'll also see several kinds of monkeys, lizards, cool plants... 2. The scenery is just gorgeous. The jungle is so beautiful and... More

My friend and I spent 4 days and 4 nights on a klotok at Tanjung Puting National Park. I had been reading lots of reviews online and decided to go with Isy Iskandar (borneotour.org, but I contacted Isy Iskandar through Facebook). The klotok was immaculate, with two comfortable recliners at the front, a hammock, two mattresses, a big table and... More

This is my second time to Tanjung Puting National Park. From the previous time, now there are less orangutans coming to the feeding platform meaning that more orangutans are able to find their own food and need no more bananas from the rangers. The river boats are better and safer now. The food provided in the klotok is as excellent... More

This is just paradise. We wanted to see orangutans and to live a real jungle experience. Our expectations were clearly fulfilled. We recommend you to make a 2/3 days boat tour to enjoy the magnificence of the landscapes and the sounds of the jungle during the night. There are three stations in which you can observe a lot of orangutans,... More

We were 3 couples with 2 babies (6.5 & 8 months), we booked 4D/3N tour from Rimba Eco Lodge and visited the Tanjung Puting National Park on board of the Rimba King klotok. It was a great experience for all of us, it's amazing to see all this wildlife and specially the orangutans in their natural habitats. The feeding stations... More

This is a must go if you love nature. We stayed there two nights in a klotok (typical boat) in the Sekonyer river and met some semi-wild orangutans and crocodiles, monkeys, etc. The visit was totally worth it, as the forests are really beautiful and the fauna is espectacular. Yusuf was or guide in the park. We contacted him directly... More

Pros + nice scenery + if you lucky, you can see crocodiles on the way to Tanjung Puting + fresh water and air + only can get something like this in Kalimantan Cons - not cheap for solo traveler - not easy to get there by ourselves

From Pangkalanbuun airport, you take a taxi ride (about 15 minutes), then you take a boat. After the open water, you will be in the river route for about 2 hours. The winding scene of relatively narrow river is so peaceful and tranquil. The feeding of orangutang is very interesting. You see the dominant male controlling the food. You also... More
