4.8
#1 of 87 in Parks in Kalimantan
Admire orangutans in their natural environment at Tanjung Puting National Park. The park hosts wild and rehabilitated orangutans as well as other species of monkeys, like macaques and proboscis. Get a close look at wild creatures from viewing platforms in the trees, located near a frequented food source. Be mindful of visiting while plantation fires are burning, when the air fills with smoke and makes traveling extremely difficult. Avoid this problem by planning your trip for the period right after the rainy season.

  • Orangutans, neseaper, makaker in their natural element. Absolutely amazing! Rent a Klonok and use some days to travel on waterways in the National Park. A Klonok is a boat where you sleep and eat on the boat. The crew arranges everything. Neseaper and Makaker can be seen from the boat. Orangutans can be seen on short walks into the jungle. Or stay at a lodge and take day trips on the rivers. This is rain forest and it's really coming often down. It is hot and humid. Include clothing and equipment that fits to it. Think about footwear since it can be quite muddy if it just rained. Even I used badesko which turned out to be absolutely excellent to go with.

  • One of the national park which has Orangutan sanctuary and research station. So many Orangutan in here. This is the lovable mother nature
  • Must visit, do the Sekonyer River cruise and stay at Rimbaud ecolodge. True rainforest experience!
  • What a great place that must visit for people that love nature , feel the nature and peace
  • Fantastic! Natural wildlife, you just take a flight to Iskandar airport of Pangkal bun, go to river Port near Kumai port to take a boat to Taman National Tanjung Puting. It's take 1 hour using speedboat or 3 hours using ordinary boat. You will follow natural river and can see crocodiles, birds and monkeys on the forest. There some orang utans at feeding point during the feeding time start at 1.00 PM. Beware if you bring your kids or some small bag, the devil monkey could steal.
  • Exploring the quiet Mentaya river by the Klotok while observe the monkeys along the riverside
