Overview

Book your place on one of our orangutan tours and our experienced guides will unveil a world rarely seen – wild orangutans feeding on the banks of the Sekoyner River and other amazing wildlife sightings in Borneo’s Tanjung Puting National Park.Meet rehabilitated orangutans at the famous Camp Leakey, along with macaques, Proboscis monkeys, gibbons, and other mammals.On our wild orangutan tours you’ll travel leisurely along the river, spotting crocodiles and monitor lizards basking in the sun, and watching stunning kingfishers swoop in front of your klotok. If you’re lucky you’ll hear the deep flapping sound of hornbills overhead, or find delicate and beautiful butterflies landing on you.This is the camping experience with a difference! On your orangutan tour you can spend a night under the jungle stars in the comfort and safety of your traditional klotok river boat – where the sounds of the forest will lull you into a gentle sleep, and awake you at dawn with a magnificent chorus of exotic birds and insects.Exploring the Borneo rainforest really is the trip of a lifetime. And to ensure your wild orangutan tour is absolutely perfect, we’ll design your own, unique itinerary. To find out more about our unforgettable tours, and what we can arrange for you, get in touch through our contact page.
