Holidays to Tanjung Puting, Indonesia

In the clarity of the deepest jungle in Kalimantan, the stars are brighter, the scent of the forest is rich in the air, and the music of water running and wind in the boughs is a fitting accompaniment to the views: towering ancient trees and meandering rivers, lit by the glorious red sunset, or by white, round face of the moon. 

Tanjung Puting is a spectacular conservation effort; the Tanjung Puting National Park is home to clouded leopards, sun bears, mouse deer, and the famous orang-utans, as well as proboscis monkeys and seven other primate species. The park is home to over 230 species of bird and hosts key ecosystems, which support thousands of unique and endangered species. 

Your adventure begins with a fairytale journey up a twisting jungle river aboard a klotok, the romantic livaboard boats that service the trip along the Sungai Sekonyer from Kumai to Camp Leakey’s renowned conservation centre. Orangutans roam wild along the river banks and you can admire them from the comfort of the deck, and use binoculars to spot the many living treasures that call the area home. 

Highlights

  • Enjoy a captivating river cruise

  • Seeing orangutans in the wild is incredible
