GREAT ORANGUTAN TOUR

5D4N

DAY 1: PANGKALAN BUN - KUMAI PORT - TANJUNG HARAPAN

Arrive at Pangkalan Bun, on the island of Borneo, better known by the Indonesians as Kalimantan. Upon arrival at the airport your guide will be waiting for you, transfer to the port of Kumai about 15-20 minutes by car where we will embark on a great adventure! We arrive to our traditional wooden boat called klotok. Our guide will reconfirm with the crew that everything is ready and start the cruise up the river in the famous Sekonyer River aboard a klotok

 

If your flight arrives early (before 11.30 AM), we can arrive in time to the rehabilitation center of Tanjung Harapan where at 3 o’clock in the afternoon, the rangers of the national park feed the Orangutans and you can have the first close encounters with them. The translation of Tanjung Harapan is Cape of Hope. This first camp is around wetlands and in the afternoon, there are more mosquitoes so make sure you put on enough mosquitoes repellent. After visiting this Rangers Camp, you will continue upstream, resting on the Boat, while we search for animals in the vicinity of the Sekonyer River. This afternoon it is very frequent to see groups of proboscis monkeys and monkeys in the treetops, jumping from one branch to another, or even see monitors or crocodiles lizards in the shallow waters of the sides of the river. Prepare for sunset, the boat moored on one side of the river to spend the night

Meals: Lunch - Dinner

Accommodation: Klotok Boat

DAY 2: PONDOK TANGGUI - CAMP LEAKEY - TREKK 

After an extraordinary breakfast, we will go in time to see the Tanggui camp at the time of feedinganimals (9 AM). Sooner or later you will see how the branches of the treetops begin to move and then you will see the silhouettes of the Orangutans arriving slowly to the feeding platform. Tanggui was a release camp for young Orangutans that were rehabilitated, and they continue to add food every day, to prevent the Orangutans from leaving because of lack of food, which could cause them end up outside the National Park, with the following risk of falling into traps of settlers or fields of palm oil plantations.

 

After the Orangutans begin to leave, you will return to the Klotok again to prepare your new adventure in the jungle, away from tourists. Along with your guide and part of the crew, you will have to take everything you need to get into the jungle in a 4-5 hour trek until you find the right place to spend the night. It is an opportunity to enjoy more intensely the endemics of the area, orangutans, the sounds of the night, the vegetation, etc. Once the camps are assembled, we will have dinner and also, if you want, you can do some hiking at night, to see the nocturnal fauna with your guide.
