Travel to Indonesia is not complete if you didn't visit Borneo. As the world's third largest island, Borneo (Kalimantan) has rich tribal cultures and an extraordinarily diverse range of flora and fauna – especially the orangutans (pongo pygmaeus) one of the human closest living relatives in Animals Kingdom, besides the Chimpanzee and Gorilla in Africa.

 

In this unique and “romantic” trip adventure in Indonesia, we take you for fascinating days visiting the orangutan research and rehabilitation centers: Camp Leakey, Tanjung harapan and Pondok Tanguy in the Tanjung Puting National Park at Central Borneo Province. We will use “klotok”, a traditional fisherman boat which have been modified to carry tourists and explore the quite Sekonyer river to visit the centers while experience the magical atmosphere of the tropical rain forest.

 

Natural tannins darken the pure river water and provide beautiful reflections. We will walk around the centers to meet the orangutans, the proboscis monkeys, gibbons and other endemic fauna and exotic flora of Borneo. You can either spend the nights on the boat surrounded only by the magical jungle sounds or in the comfortable lodge or a combination of the two.

 

This trip is suitable for children, family, honeymooners, photographers and those the nature lovers.

 

On the trips to visit the Dayak tribes in this province, we will use a boat cruise along the Lamandu River to observe the way of life of the Central Kalimantan’s Dayak Tribesman and enjoy the stunning views of nature with rich of flora and fauna along the river bank. Dayak Tribesmen who well known as ‘head hunters’ and the ‘cannibal’ from in the past, now they are leaving peaceful in the communal ‘Long Houses’ of the village.
