BORNEO ORANGUTAN TOUR

START/END : JAKARTA or BALI
OPERATED BY : ADVENTURE INDONESIA BRANCH AT PANGKALAN BUN

Many of past clients call this is a "magical trip". We will take you to meet one of the human's closest living relatives in animal kingdoms: Orangutan (pongo pygmaeus pygmaeus sp.) living free at their natural home at Camp Leakey, Tanjung Harapan and Pondok Tanguy stations inside the misty rain forest surrounded by proboscis monkeys, macaques, gibbons, birds including the giant hornbills and other exotic flora and fauna. You will explore the quit river on a traditional boat ( "African Queen" river boat style) and having some short walk around the stations.

Interaction with Borneo Orangutan

For your information in Tanjung Puting National Park there is two different type of orangutan, first is orangutan who originally inhabitant in this park and we called it wild orangutan and second is the rehabilitant orangutan or ex-captive orangutan formerly confiscated and rescue from the people who keep them as a pet. For the wild orangutan it is difficult to play or interact with them due to they are shy animal and always keep the distance with human. For example if you put some fruits on the ground they will never take it till you go away or disappear from their sight. While with the ex-captive or rehabilitant orangutan you have a chance to play or interact with them.

Actually we do not recommend to initiate contact with them due to the rehabilation process to take them back to their natural habitat, but as they formerly live with human for years so they prefers to play then back to the jungle.river_cruiseIt may happen while you trek or at the feeding time you meet them they would like to play with you. Take your hand and walk around the jungle so they will act like your trusty jungle guide :-), riding in your back or something else. It is not also recommend to feed them but in some cases is fine as long as you feed them with their natural food such as fruits. For your information, actually they have their own food in the jungle such as many different kind of fruits, young leaves, bark, termites, shoots, and very rare happen they eat small birds or eggs if they completely run out their food. To anticipate the competition to get food in the park and the fruits season is over so there is a feeding time for them once a day. We give them fruits and milk as supplement food and they can find the rest in the jungle.

Many of the orangutan which have already successfully rehabilitated still come to the rehabilitation center at Camp Leakey station to visit the rangers and to interactive with the new coming orangutans. Sometimes we can also encounter with the wild orangutans during easy trekking around the Camp Leakey which is also a research centre area.

How to Get Pangkalanbun

This trip are flexible time departure and there is no special weather condition requires to fully enjoy this magical trip. We could do the visit at any time of the year, dry or wet season. You will find different beauty of nature at both weather. The important thing is connect with the flight schedule, as you notice on remote destination like Kalimantan, there is only several airlines operated.

Borneo Orangutan - Client Testimony

Wanto, I had the most fantastic orangutan trip. It was probably one of the best experiences of my life and something that will remain with me for ever. I plan to return (with Michael) next year. I am fortunate to have been able to visit many wonderful places in the world but I can honestly say that I have never been looked after quite so well as by you and your team.

It was lovely to return home to see my friends and family but I miss the jungle and the orangutans dreadfully. Luckily I have many photos to remind me and next week I am giving a talk at my little boy's school to tell them all about my adventure with the orangutan and to hopefully educate them in a small way about orangutans. Wanto - thank you again. I will be back in touch next year to book a return trip. (ANNA ROMELING - UK)

Dear Jeffry,
I wanted to thank you for your amazing assistance in Indonesia during the Orangutan and Komodo Dragon filming of our documentary series, Kratt Brothers Be the Creature, for the National Geographic Channel. It’s always difficult producing programmes where the location is so far away from home base, but the professionalism of Adventure Indonesia made it incredibly easy. You and your colleagues provided amazing logistical services before, during and after our filming.Every time we needed something done, there was never a question of it not being possible. My confidence in you was complete.

I would recommend Adventure Indonesia highly to anyone who needed assistance when traveling to Indonesia. >Whether you were dealing with the intricacies of filming permissions or just arranging travel, all the work done was at the higher level. I give you a 5 star rating..!!! Once again, many thanks for everything you and Adventure Indonesia did for us. It was wonderful.
Kind regards,
