If you visit Tanjung Puting NP, you'll probably go to Camp Leakey. You'll get a taste of the work to protect the habitat of orangutans, greatly threatened by palm oil plantations. You'll also see orangutans close up, as most days they put out piles of bananas, and some will come to feed.

The feeding platform at Camp Leakey is the best in the area. There are a few regulars and the orangutan here are the tamest of all but that does not dull the experience by any means. During the wet season there are less Orangutans due to there being more food in the jungle but less tourists as well, we only... More

This trip is not to be minimized or taken for granted. Local guides who are invested in preserving this area will teach you how important this land is and the wealth it contains in keeping it pristine and in its natural state. To walk through the jungle and see the work that Dr. Galdikas has done is nothing short of... More

This camp does incredible work, and we felt very privileged to be able to visit and see what they do here. Fascinating history and a good feeding site too. Wish we had more time here.

Camp Leakey is one out of three stations we visited on our 3D2N Tanjung Puting Tour. We came in the rain, walked an easy path to the feeding station. On our way, We saw Tom - the alpha male - behind the trees and Siswi - the Queen of Camp Leakey - blocking the path. They were huge, stunning and... More

This was a bucket list trip. We stayed at the Rimba Eco lodge and used a Klotok boat to travel up to the three feeding stations. You can take a speed boat from Kumai which while faster is v noisy and will destroy almost any wildlife opportunities. The journey from Kumai to Rimba is a relaxing 2 hours and from... More

It is newly built with seats in front of the feeding platform. First some Orang Utans came, then suddenly they were all around us. Also a Gibbon monkey came. Booked this amazing tour with Orang Utan Kalimantan, owner Enno. It was the hottest place on earth... But amazing!!!

Due to being the high season we didn’t want to take any chances of there not being any available tours there when we arrived as we... More
