Camp Leakey, Central Kalimantan

(4.8/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • A leak is a leading anthropologist, which you can see in the film (formed an actor), gorillas in the mist! His interest in primates saved outside of the gorillas and Orangutans here:) Feeding was not bad, but compared to other stations in this park is moving under the category of five stars! There were a lot more people (but considering we were here with the locals, because they had a national holiday, so it was still very livable)!

  • This camp does incredible work, and we felt very privileged to be able to visit and see what they do here. Fascinating history and a good feeding site too. Wish we had more time here.
