The National Park can only be reached by scenic open boats for 2 or 4 people which will become your room and bedroom during the visit. The boat ride is amazing by itself, when you are lucky you can see gators, horn bills, some sorts of monkeys and even one Orang Utang came close and greeted us. We had a... More

Welcome to the Capital City of Orangutan. We spent 3D2N in Klotok, a house boat we used to reach orangutan station. Orangutan is a solitaire species that when you'd feel so happy to find them jump from one tree to another while walking in the middle of rain forest. Come and explore Borneo. We travelled with Be Borneo Tour and... More

This place blew our minds. Thanks to Orangutan Houseboat Tour for the opportunity to experience this magical part of the world. Stunning jungles, lots of wildlife and we were blessed with good weather too. Pack the mosquito repellant and lots of it. Plenty of Orangutan feeding stations for the opportunity to spot some wild orangutans. Camp Leakey was fascinating. A... More

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.

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.
