Take an adventure by boat for a few days exploring Tanjung Puting National Park in search of Oran-utans and monkeys, and visiting local people along the way.

Indonesian Kalimantan is part of the island of Borneo and a region covered largely in remote rainforest, rivers and mountains. The reason for visiting Kalimantan is to take a boat trip into the jungle to observe orang-utans, monkeys, gibbons and other wildlife in their natural habitat, as well as visiting an orang-utan rehabilitation centre to help in the ongoing efforts to protect this most incredible mammal.

The local peoples, Dayaks, still live on the river in their traditional long houses. Their’s is a unique way of life you will discover and the friendly welcome you will receive is enchanting.

The most popular region is Tanjung Puting National Park in which there are three orang-utan refuges you can visit on your voyage into the wilderness.  

From Java or Bali, fly to Pontianak to connect with your river adventure. Pontianak is an interesting place to explore for a day, with the usual bustle and markets - and a cathedral with a fusion of European and Dayak style.
