Day 1: Pangkalanbun – Tanjung Putting
Upon arrival at Pangkalan Bun Airport you will be met by your local guide and transferred to Kumai, where you will board your boat.
The boat is a traditional Klotok (wooden house boat) with a roof which forms the upper deck, from where you can view the rain forest as it glides by.
The guide's team includes the boatman, a cook and expert guide.
Lunch is served on the way to Tanjung Puting, while you slowly cruise along the river, observing the wildlife of the rainforest which lines the rivers banks. If you are lucky you may spot a proboscis monkey sitting high up in the trees or an Orang Utan flying from one tree to another in search of food.
Day 2: Orang Utan explorations at camp Leaky
Cruise to the first feeding station in time for the 11:30 feeding. Here you can witness the orangutans as they make their way down to the platform, swinging through the trees to collect the food which the rangers have laid out for them.
Continue along the river to camp Leaky. The camp was established in 1971 to support research activities in the Tanjung Puting Wildlife Reserve. This area also functions as orangutans rehabilitation centre.
Over the years, the camp has served the research efforts of several scientists and students. Here you will also be able to see the feeding time around 14.00 before returning to the lodge.
Lunch will be provided en route.
