Orangutan Tour – Tanjung Puting National Park
Located in the heart of Borneo, Tanjung Puting National Park is a stunning destination for nature lovers and wildlife enthusiasts. As home to approximately three-quarters of the world's orangutan population, the park is a critical hub for orangutan research and conservation.
Visitors to the park can expect an immersive and thrilling experience, as they are invited to observe the daily activities of orangutans and other exotic tropical animals in their natural habitat. Rangers at the park provide regular orangutan feedings, and you can watch these intelligent and majestic creatures up close.
One of the park's major highlights is Camp Leakey, a research center where orangutans are studied and cared for. You can take a boat ride down the black river to reach the camp, where you will have the chance to see a wide range of wildlife, including birds, primates, fish, reptiles, and freshwater crocodiles and gharials.
On the last day of the trip, you will drift down the Sekonyer River and visit the nearby village to see the local villagers' daily life. This provides an opportunity to learn more about the culture and traditions of the region while also enjoying the beauty of the surrounding natural environment.
Overall, visiting Tanjung Puting National Park is a must-do for anyone interested in nature, conservation, and the amazing animals that call this region home.
