Camp Leakey, Central Kalimantan
Categories: Wildlife Areas, Nature & Parks
Come face-to-face with orangutans in their natural environment at Camp Leakey. Established in 1971 and named after paleo-anthropologist Louis Leakey, the park is a leading research and conservation center for endangered primates. Keep an eye on the ground: Borneo orangutans often walk on all fours, whereas their Sumatran counterparts prefer to hang out in trees. Guests can visit the park during the day with a guide, but are not allowed to stay overnight. Make sure you have the proper permits before entering. Put Camp Leakey and other Central Kalimantan attractions into our Central Kalimantan vacation generator, and watch your holiday take shape.
