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 peaceful afternoon, we silently cruise the river to watch the
Proboscis "Pinocchio" monkeys (nasalis larvatus), birds and other
animals playing in trees on the riverbanks while you enjoying your
afternoon tea in the roof of the boat.
with Borneo Orangutan
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.
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.It 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.

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.
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)
I wanted to thank you for your amazing assistance in Indonesia during
the Orangutan and Komodo Dragon filming of our documentary series,

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.
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.
