Amazing place

A lot of wild animals: croccodiles, orangutans, monkeys, birds and even tarantulas... Boats are really nice, jungle is beautiful. Hope that people will not destroy it...

We spent 4 days/3 nights in the national park on a 'klotok' boat and had a wonderful time. The boat is for 2 people and we had an 'upgraded' one with an aircon cabin and it's own toilet and shower (usually you sleep in a mattress on deck under a mozzie net). We had a captain, two assistants and a... More

Here is ground zero for orangutans, gibbons and proboscis monkeys. We saw them all plus green vipers, macques and wild boars. Bring camera with telephoto, field binoculars, sun screen, bug spray, rain gear, sturdy shoes and plenty of bottled water. It is steamy hot and the river provides little relief but plenty of caimans.

3D2N and 2 kids on the "classic" Tanjung Puting National Park visit. It is unforgettable. Day 1: pickup at the airport, get settled on the boat, start cruising up the river, and a first (easy) stop at the first feeding site. Check out the various monkeys in the jungle along the way. Day 2: more crusing up river, Camp Leaky,... More

And observe the orangutans in the wild.Amazing to see the mothers and baby swing so gracefully.The food served on the Klotok was excellent and very ggod service... More

Spent 3 nights on a klotok exploring the park. Wonderful way to view the abundant wildlife. The second and third feeding stations had less orangutans as these are newer in age. Camp Leakey is an amazing place to visit and support- their tireless work to help save the forests, nature and wildlife is admirable. The multitude of orangutans at feeding... More

If you want to see orangutans truly in the wild, this is one of the few places left on earth. There are about 7,000 in the National Park, and you can't miss them, with the noise they make crashing through the trees above your boat. The only way to do it is to book a Klotok, a small boat. You... More

I am just back from visiting Tanjung Puting national park . I chose to use siti's tours as she was able to arrange a female guide for me.

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
