Fantastic adventure on the river and in the park. Guaranteed to see orangutans. Recommend three days and two nights on a klotok houseboat. I used Jenie Subaru and he is fantastic...a local guide who now owns his own company and employs other locals on his three boats. Highly recommended!

My couple and me spent 3 weeks in Indonesia and we can assure this was the best part of the trip. Borneo is still quite virgin, which makes the experience more authentic. We recommend to rent your own klotok; It is not the same if you must share it with other people. We decided to contact directly a local guide,... More

We were group of four took the 3D2N tour on a Christmas weekend - low season with lots of thunder and rain. The upsides were: less crowds, only few Klotoks (boats) at every deck of all three stations.. and more rain means less chance of fire haze. The jungle was so thick, from the boat we saw Bekantan (long-nosed monkey),... More

We did the two night three day river house boat trip. This was definitely enough time to visit all three camps and see a local village. Along the river you will also see many monkeys. The camp stops where they have feeding stations allow you to have a close up view of the wild and rehabilitated Orangutans. Highly recommended national... More

No place on earth like this...the orangutans are beyond amazing. Please come and support this place before it disappears thanks to the palm oil plantations destroying the Bornean land and habitat for the Orangutan.

Food good ,sleeping environment on klotok comfortable and all supplies , tea, chairs etc more than adequately provided. Problems with klotok breaking down ,we were shuttled to 4... More

Wild life galore. Saw lots of orangutans. Wild ones. You ride the river in a klotok (a traditional boat) which is amazingly comfortable. There is wildlife in all directions. Not to mention the bird life. The jungle is really beautiful. A wonderful wildlife experience.

We visited the national park with orangutan houseboat tours for three days and two nights. It was truly an amazing experience (as a western city dweller, you can get past all the bugs)!! We got really up close with orangutans, proboscis monkeys, macaques, gibbons and amazing birds and forest fauna and flora. On a night trail we saw tarantulas, scorpions,... More

We have just returned from a 3D/2N tour of Tanjung Puting National Park on board a Klotok booked through Jenie Subaru (as mentioned in Lonely Planet and other reviews). The Park itself was lovely - albeit bordered by the tragic areas of destruction thanks to Palm Oil production. We visited 3 feeding stations including Camp Leakey - to be honest,... More

Our tour was arranged by Siti - and we would unreservedly recommend her to all - search for Siti's Tanjung Putting Orangutan Tours. She arranged an itinerary to exactly match all our requirements. The 3 day / 2night klotok trip into TP national park was the highlight - and our team of 3 - guide,captain and cook - were all... More
