Spend 3 days exploring Borneo’s Tanjung Puting National Park, whilst staying in the beauty of the Rimba Orangutan Eco-Lodge in Central Kalimantan. This location is one of the few remaining places where Orangutans can be seen in the wild. Rimba can only be reached by boat from the port of Kumai, and arriving at the Lodge jetty in the middle of the forest is an experience you won’t forget.
You’ll arrive at Rimba Lodge, late in the afternoon and enjoy your first amazing dinner at the lodge. The next day you’ll be up early to explore the rainforest around Rimba Lodge and climb up to the lookout and watch the sunrise over the canopy as well as see the amazing birds of this region. Then it’s onto a riverboat, to explore Pesalat Reforestation Centre and then back on the Sekonyer River to Camp Leakey.
Camp Leakey is a landmark research and rehabilitation centre, where you’ll be able to observe orangutans in the wild, and learn all about the history of this project.
Day 3 you’ll enjoy a breakfast and then a leisurely river boat cruise as you return to Kumai Port.
