Description:

Book your place on one of our orangutan tours and our experienced guides...

Book your place on one of our orangutan tours and our experienced guides will unveil a world rarely seen – wild orangutans feeding on the banks of the Sekoyner River and other amazing wildlife sightings in Borneo’s Tanjung Puting National Park.Meet rehabilitated orangutans at the famous Camp Leakey, along with macaques, Proboscis monkeys, gibbons, and other mammals.On our wild orangutan tours you’ll travel leisurely along the river, spotting crocodiles and monitor lizards basking in the sun, and watching stunning kingfishers swoop in front of your klotok. If you’re lucky you’ll hear the deep flapping sound of hornbills overhead, or find delicate and beautiful butterflies landing on you.This is the camping experience with a difference! On your orangutan tour you can spend a night under the jungle stars in the comfort and safety of your traditional klotok river boat – where the sounds of the forest will lull you into a gentle sleep, and awake you at dawn with a magnificent chorus of exotic birds and insects.Exploring the Borneo rainforest really is the trip of a lifetime. And to ensure your wild orangutan tour is absolutely perfect, we’ll design your own, unique itinerary. To find out more about our unforgettable tours, and what we can arrange for you, get in touch through our contact page.

As a solo traveler I left it until the last minute organising my tour (hoping I'd find people wanting to join me, with no luck!), everything was organised through Hannah who was super quick to reply to emails and answer questions, she was also incredibly patient when I discovered my cheap Indonesian phone was not able to open email attachments....

Wild Orangutan tours were really helpful from the start, with Hannah answering all my questions and making it simple to book my four day tour months in advance. I arranged everything else myself and advised the hotel I was staying at the night before the tour. My guide (Rini) was waiting for me in the hotel first thing in the... More

“We had an absolutely great and amazing tour, friendly crew and guied is amazing, knowing a lot about the orangutans and spending a lot of time with us explaining.

” Took a tour with wild orangutan tours – to TanjungPuting park in Kalimantan. 2 of us did a last minute 3d 2n tour with them and we basically booked it over the net.

We took a 3-night trip with Wild Orangutan Tours in August, and it was without question the worst experience we have had with a guided tour. We are highly experienced travellers (>100 countries) and admit that our expectations are high.

My daughter and I took this trip in October of 2014. I researched via Tripadvisor and chose this company. Communications with Hannah was always timely and easy. We flew from Jakarta to Kalimantan.

A day tour is fine if you are short of time but having traveled all the way to Pangkalan Bun you might as well spend at least 3 nights on a river boat and really see things! A Day tour is not enough!
