  • Sulawessi is great! Klotok navigation and all the animals that you'll see during the trip is culminated dramatically with excursions through the jungle and the reserve of orang-utans, macaques, proboscis... Too bad that we rained during those days, but not it eclipsed anything our visit.

  • Merupakan kunjungan pertama saya di Taman Nasional Tanjung Puting. Sangat kagum dengan lingkungan dan hutan-hutan disekitar, terutama saat berada disepanjang Sungai Sekonyer. Banyak bekantan, monyet, ...  more »
  • The Park bears witness to the strong defense against the progressive deforestation to make way for oil palm plantations, which reduces inexorably orangutan habitat. Brown water that meets in the first part of the crossing of the river is due to discharges of plantations, according to the guides. The boat trip is impressive and engaging. From the boat you can admire the wildlife (monkeys and birds) especially in the early morning and at dusk, in addition to the green banks. The rangers are adept at attracting with voice signals the orangutans at the sites of the meal, an authentic vision of the habits of these creatures so similar to us in their actions. Worth a visit Camp Leakey, whose reserve exhibit space should be updated with the most current data about the increasing risks they face the jungle and native wildlife.
