Baluran National Park, Situbondo

(3.9/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Experience an Indonesian version of the safari at Baluran National Park, a savannah grassland preservation area overlooked by a dormant volcano. While wandering around the wilderness you might see various monkeys, wild pigs, and leopards. At the main watering hole you can find grazing deer and the endangered Java buffalo. Admire the diversity of vegetation, with over 400 plant species recorded on the grounds. Observe the animals from a tower in the middle of the park, or relax in the mangrove forest or on the fine sandy beach. You will have to bring your own food, but you can get drinks at the small shops on site. If you want to extend your stay, note that camping here is permitted.

  • They called it as Africa van Java, been here 3rd times and never get bored. In the past lots of wild animal in sight, right now they hiding because these day lots of people visit this place. Beware of monkey in Bama Beach!
  • afrika van JAVA ... good savana and beach ... many animal wildlife
  • This national park has many species of plants and animals. When you visit the savannah, you will recognize it as "Little Africa" in Indonesia.
  • The african-looklike savannah best visited in dry season. Dont forget the Bama beach too. Prepare your vehicles as the roads were super bumpy. Or take a walk instead for about two hours from the entrance to the savannah
