Camp Leakey, Central Kalimantan

4.9
#2 of 9 in Parks in Central Kalimantan
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.

  • Has to be one of the most wonderful places on earth.
  • An absolute awesome experience! We booked via Ahrda (not sure how to write the name exactly) and had her Cousin Faris as Tour-Guide. This man speaks really good english and has many information about the life in the rainforest, because he is born there. We had so much fun with him on the boat and we couldn't get a better tourguide! Thanks again Faris for the memories :)
  • Amazing! We booked our tour through Jenie Subaru and our guide was Deny. Jenie inquired about exactly what we wanted to experience on our tour and Deny delivered! Deny was very knowledgeable about every aspect of the forest and we achieved experience exactly what we wanted!
