Margomulyo Mangrove Forest, Balikpapan

4.0
#2 of 6 in Nature in Balikpapan
Experience unspoiled nature by taking narrow wooden paths through the middle of Margomulyo Mangrove Forest. This green sanctuary provides a home for many chirping birds and small monkeys. With some luck, you may be able to come across tempakul (mudskippers), a fish that can use their fins to walk on land.

Where to stay in Balikpapan

Balikpapan features upscale and business hotels, as well as budget and backpacker accommodations. Stay near the city center for easy access to nightlife and shopping. Volunteering at the orangutan sanctuary, however, requires sleeping on site at one of the basic rooms. Remember to take outdoor equipment like a flashlight and insect repellant if staying at the sanctuary.
