Tanjung Puting National Park, Central Kalimantan

4.7
#1 of 84 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.

  • To reach it is necessary to go by boat, beautiful ride of 2 hours along the canals surrounded by wildlife and jungle. In the jungle you will find several orangutans, either by roads, tree or next to you! Our guide entered us into the jungle where there was no one more than the natural life of orang-utans and we could see their way of life. I remember a small orangutan pulling us clubs from the top of a tree, he was playing! MY moment more special was when on a path barely 3 meters from us we are dad, MOM and baby for 7 months! It was incredible, hard to explain what you feel at that moment. If you go in winter it is low season and there is just no tourists.

  • 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.
  • Fantastic. Ivend Stephen (you can find him on Facebook if you want a tour) was our guide. Excellent wildlife, tour, food and hospitality. Dinner with fireflies. We visited 3 orangutan feeding stations throughout the park. We also planted seedlings to help with reforestation. 3 days, 2 nights. One night on the Klotok (boat), and the other at Rimba lodge.
  • Very good park & experience. Staff feed orangutans and you can see how they come to eat. We saw some orangutans very very close!! Amazing forest trekking. I recommend to stay in a klotok (boat). From the boat we saw wild orangutans too. Dont miss it!
  • The whole reason I came to Indonesian again was to see the Orangutans. This is a must do!! Amazing experience I will never forget
  • Simply an amazing experience. All the rainforest should be preserved for future generations, visit this place and understand why.
