My wife and myself start our Indonesia trip in Kalimantan's Tanjung Putting National Park by the end of past June; although the rest of the journey in the other islands was great, both agree the days we spend in the National Park were the most extraordinary experience.
Orangutans, proboscis "long nose" monkeys, macaques, water snakes, crocodiles, kingfishers, nice sunsets, nights with trees plenty of fireflies, sunrise hearing thousands of jungle sounds, etc...
Everything in a small "klotok" boat, detailed explanations of the native guide, which love their Island, the park biodiversity, and specially these "almost human" orangutans.
Most important; they have a mission to work for in Kumai, protect the orangutans environment in Borneo, thank you very much for let us feel as part of it.

As conclusion, we highly recommend everyone visiting this paradise, be sure your trip will be memorable.

Via the slow boat (klotok) we slowly entered the jungle to see the orangutangs. Not only the orangutangs were an attraction but also the nights under the mosquito nets on deck of the klotok. All the noices and sounds of the jungle coming to you. Food was very good on board and friendly people. Seeing the jungle passing by slowly is relaxing while you go Always deeper. Of course the meeting with the orangutangs is the purpose of the trip and it's worth it.
An experience never to forget

We explored this via klotak boat with the company Borneo Wildlife Tours. They were very professional and organized in their communication. They were also able to help us book our flight from Surabaya to and from Pangkalan Bun. The accommodations were basic, but more than enough and the food was excellent. The orangutans are the reason you go and they were truly amazing! We saw adults and little ones very close up through two different feedings. I highly recommend it!

We accessed the park by slow boat up the river which gives you lots of time to marvel at the density of the mangroves lining the shore and to spot the various monkeys in the trees as well as the very colorful Kingfisher. We went ashore at an orangutan feeding station where after a heavy rainfall we had to gingerly pick our way along a muddy path through the jungle but it was well worth it. At the feeding station when they put out a pile of bananas two large orangutans came down from the trees and ignoring our presence demolished the whole pile. To see these amazing animals up close is a real treat.

It was an amazing experience to see orang utan, gibbon, bekantan and boars in their nature habitat, and there were a lot more we can find under the shades of rainforest! Pitcher plants, birds, various mushrooms and trees to name a few. And crocodiles! What a fun way to spend long weekend. As to the agent, the boat was okay, the guide was great and I can't complain about the food. I will go back soon to see more cute orang utans!
