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

There we sat on tree stumps in excited anticipation. Several times a day the rangers bring bananas and other food to feeding stations on platforms for the orangutans to eat and so tourists can see these grand animals in their natural habitat. That afternoon we saw four or five orangutans, including a mother and her baby holding tightly to her,... More

We just spent one day tour to Tanjung Puting National Park. Tanjung Puting is approximately 4 hours from Kumai Port (8 hours return). Light trekking (2 km) to see wild orang utan, feeding orang utan, sometimes if you lucky one you can see bekantan or owa-owa. What I really love about this trip is Klotok. Klotok is like canoe in...

Could not have arranged this trip without the superior help from Harry, who even got me the etickets for the plane from Jakarta, as it was impossible to book with a non-Asian credit card. Was met on the plane and taken to nice restaurant and then to wonderful Yoyorin homestay. Next morning picked up after coffee and off to the... More

An amazing, moving humbling experience. So many orang utans and so close to feel one of them. Our guide Edy has his own website and made booking and asking questions so easy. Plus we know the fee is going to local people, not western travel agents. do it direct. Many levels of luxury or traditional boats available for different budgets,... More

We spent 4 days cruising on a klotok boat in Tanjung Puting. I cannot recommend this highly enough. Unfortunately we couldn't sleep on the boat but we spent all day there. Our guide was Dedy Bintang a young man with excellent English who knew so much about the wild life of the area. We saw so many orangutangs and other... More

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...
