The Orangutan tours we provide are not only holidays, but a truly special window into human evolution. Orangutans, the only great ape in Asia, share 97 % of their DNA with human beings and fittingly, ‘orangutan’ means man of the forest. The Orangutan Guided Tours highlight all of our shared similarities with these special great apes.
We will visit 3 Orangutan feeding station. We deeply respect the Orangutans so there is no initiate contact with. However, sheer awe and amazement are encouraged! (During Covid-19 Pandemic, Tanjung Puting NP only run for 1 Camp "Tanjung Harapan". Other camps now still on preparation to be opened. Please stay tuned!)
We start from Pangkalan Bun and then head to Kumai, where we board a "kelotok" a traditional house boat. We then cruise into the river that runs through an ancient rainforest, the home of numerous indigenous animal species. The Proboscis Monkey, aptly named because of its enormous nose, and the amazing bird, the Hornbill, are just two examples of endemic species. Once we are off the boat, we’ll walk into the forest, where flora and fauna sightings only increase accordingly.
We provide truly unique wildlife experiences, and most importantly, the opportunity to see Asia’s Great Apes.
Traveling within Tanjung Puting National Park, is a wonderful trip. Just lay down on the deck of the kelotok, enjoy a cup of coffee and observe the natural wildlife. We are honored to be a part of your time in Wonderful Indonesia.
Staying on the Kelotok is an unforgettable memory that will last a lifetime.
