MAKING ALL YOUR TRAVEL PLANS AVAILABLE
Upon your arrival at Pangkalan Bun Airport, your tour guide will meet your group and take you on a 20 minute drive straight to Tanjung Puting National Park harbour in Kumai to board Belantara and be introduced to the crew.
A delicious lunch will be served while we head from the port towards Kumai River. We will leisurely explore the quiet river while observing wildlife such as Proboscis monkeys, long tail Macaques, various birds like Hornbills and Kingfishers along the shores. Our guide will provide informative details on the wildlife, vegetation and history of the region and answer any questions you may have.
Our first stop will be Tanjung Harapan where we will take a short walk through the forest to the semi wild orangutan feeding which starts at 3pm. You will likely see monkeys, wild boars and various species of birds at the feeding ground and along the trail. Upon return to the boat, we will find a quiet location to moor overnight. A full course dinner will be served while you enjoy your first night in the rainforest.
Optional: A night walk through the forest led by a Ranger to explore interesting vegetation such as glowing mushrooms, unique insects, elusive Tarsiers, sleeping birds and other creatures of the night.
You will awaken to the serene rainforest morning ambience including orangutan long calls, gibbons, various birds and other wildlife sounds. After a hearty breakfast we will cruise up the river to Pondok Tanguy, the orangutan rehabilitation center, and hike along the rainforest to view the 9 am feeding.
Upon returning to the boat we will continue on a 2 hour cruise and enter the mirrored black water Sekonyer River. You will soon notice the change of air as you are breathing in from the Lung of the Earth and the vegetation advances from peatland to the biodiverse tropical rainforest plants. Along the way you will see the magnificent reflection of vegetation along the river and perhaps fresh water crocodiles, monitor lizards and other wildlife.
After lunch on board, we will visit Camp Leakey, known as the research center where the orangutans are reintroduced into the rainforest. A visit to the information center and museum will introduce you to orangutan life in Tanjung Puting National Park with informative exhibits on their diet, development, daily traits and family trees. We will then set off for a breathtaking trek journey through tropical rainforest searching for wild orangutans, boars, gibbons, birds and other rainforest animals, and tropical rainforest plants. At 3pm central time (+1 hour time difference between Camp Leakey and Kumai) you can witness the feeding ground, where the rehabilitated and nursing orangutans are provided additional food and care.
In the late afternoon we will cruise down the river while observing groups of long nosed Proboscis monkeys, possibly wild Orangutan and other wildlife or simply enjoying the sunset on the spacious boat deck. A delicious dinner will be served by our chef and we will moor on your last night along the Nipah mangrove where you can watch a spectacular display of fireflies.
Enjoy your last breakfast on board or free morning program as the boat returns to Kumai. Upon arrival to the port, we will transfer you Pangkalan Bun airport for your next destination.
Note: Itineraries may be altered depending on your arrival time and weather/river conditions. However rest assured that we will visit all the park locations described over the course of your visit, but in different order.
