How To Visit Tanjung Puting National Park In Indonesia

If you want to see orangutans in Borneo, one of the best places to do it is at the Tanjung Puting National Park in Kalimantan, Indonesia.

The jungle at Tanjung Puting is home to hundreds of Borneo’s animal species, including some rare and endemic ones, and you get to see all of this while staying on a ‘Klotok’ houseboat as it winds along the Sekonyer river.

We spent 3 days and 2 nights on a liveaboard boat at Tanjung Puting and it was amazing. It’s not one of the cheapest places to visit in Indonesia , but the whole experience is really unique and special.

This travel guide will explain how to get to Tanjung Puting and see the orangutans, which boat tour company to use, and everything else you need to know before you go!

How To Get To Tanjung Puting National Park

Tanjung Puting is located on Borneo island, in the Central Kalimantan province of Indonesia, and if you look at it on a map it’s actually on the southern tip of the island.

The nearest town and airport is Pangkalan Bun (PKN), and there are direct flights every day from Jakarta, Surabaya, and Semarang. If you’re coming to Tanjung Puting from Bali, then you’ll have to transit in one of those airports on the way to Pangkalan Bun. You can shop for flights on Skyscanner.

Once you arrive in Pangkalan Bun, it’s a 15 minute drive to the harbor in Kumai, and depending on your arrival time, you can usually go directly to the harbor and start your tour of Tanjung Puting National Park.

Most tour companies will pick you up for free from town or the airport, and then bring you to the harbor where your boat will be waiting. From there, you can reach the entrance of the Sekonyer river and the national park in less than an hour of boat travel!

River Boat Cruise: What To Expect

Tanjung Puting is normally accessed by boat via the Sekonyer river, and this is done with an all-inclusive liveaboard boat called a ‘Klotok,’ which usually has a crew of at least 4 people: a boat captain, a deckhand, a tour guide, and a cook.

The river moves very slowly, so you don’t have to worry about seasickness, rapids, waves, or anything like that on your journey into the park.

Besides enjoying the wonderful views from the boat, you’ll also make several stops to get off the boat and go see animals in the jungle, which involves a bit of short, flat trekking.

Klotok Liveaboard Houseboat

This is what the Klotok houseboats look like

The Klotok boats usually have space for up to 8 people in total, with the guests staying on the upper level while the crew lives in the bottom level.

Our boat had a reasonably comfy bed and bathroom, with a flush toilet and shower, although the facilities overall are pretty basic.

Think of it kind of like glamping. It’s not luxury, but it’s comfortable enough.

Meals are provided every day on the boat, and the food in our experience was great, including tempeh, omelets, toast, pancakes, fish, chicken, rice, noodles, soup, and all kinds of fruit and veggies. Everything we ate was fresh and good.

Life on the boat is pretty comfortable

Some Klotok boats have A/C, but most do not, and it’s not really needed. You may be hot and sweaty during the day, but at night the temperatures drop and it’s easy to cool off with a cold shower before bed.

Electricity is by generator in the evenings, so we were able to use the outlets to charge our phones and other electronics from time to time. It’s still a good idea to bring a fat power bank , though.

The boats have good rain covers so you don’t have to worry about getting wet either. We experienced a massive storm and downpour on our first night in the park, but everything in the boat stayed safe and dry.

Tours at Tanjung Puting typically last 2 or 3 days, but you can stay longer if you have the time and budget, or you can visit on a 1 day trip with a speedboat if you’re in a hurry.

• Day 1: Tanjung Harapan

After about 2 hours of traveling along the river by Klotok boat, the first place you’ll stop and visit in the national park is a camp called Tanjung Harapan.

This used to be a rehab center for orphaned and rescued orangutans, but now it’s just a feeding station where they help the animals get supplemental food (mainly fruit) so they can thrive and stay healthy.

When we landed at Tanjung Harapan, it was still early since the feeding time starts at 3 PM. We used the extra time to walk around near the camp a little bit and spotted our first orangutan, an adult female climbing in the trees.

When it’s feeding time, the park staff puts a pile of fruit on a wooden platform and then calls the orangutans out of the jungle. Sometimes you have to wait a bit for them to show up, but then they come swinging through the trees and you can watch them eat while you stand behind a fence about 30 meters back.

We saw almost a dozen orangutans at Tanjung Harapan, including several juveniles, one baby, and a big adult male. After we went back to the boat, we were also lucky to spot a bunch of wild proboscis monkeys (aka long nose monkeys) across the river, staring at us from the treetops!

• Day 1: Night Trekking

At the end of your first day in Tanjung Puting, you normally have the option to do night trekking so you can see animals, plants, and bugs in the jungle near Tanjung Harapan.

In just an hour of flat and easy trekking, we saw a tarantula, pit viper, tree frogs, kingfishers, tokays, glow in the dark mushrooms, and lots of other interesting things.

The night trek is optional with most tours, but I’d highly recommend doing it if you still have energy left over at the end of the day!

• Day 2: Pondok Tanggui

On our second day in Tanjung Puting, we woke up at 7 AM and drove the boat another 1.5 hours up the river to get to the next camp, which is called Pondok Tanggui.

Along the way, we saw some more wildlife in the trees, including proboscis monkeys, a crested serpent eagle, and a black-and-red broadbill.

We got to the camp just before feeding time, which starts at 9 AM. This time, we saw even more orangutans, including one very big and photogenic male orangutan who came at the end of the feeding time.

It was a good reminder to stay and wait a little bit after the feeding time ends, because sometimes the best animal sightings happen when the tourists have already started to leave.

Each camp requires a bit of short and easy hiking to see the animals.

• Day 2: Camp Leakey

After we left Pondok Tanggui and got back on the river, the boat ride took approximately 2 hours to get to our next stop, which was Camp Leakey. The feeding time there is at 2 PM.

The color of the river at this point turns black because of chemicals from the plants, and the surface of the water is almost like a mirror reflecting the swamp. It looks spooky and beautiful.

We saw even more proboscis monkeys, and several macaques similar to the ones you might see in Bali . We also spotted a monitor lizard and a crocodile swimming around, although they disappeared before we could take any photos.

Sekonyer black river

At Camp Leakey, we saw another dozen orangutans, but the highlight this time was seeing several mothers carrying babies.

The lighting and photo ops at this camp seem to be the best since the jungle isn’t quite as dense and dark as the first two camps.

After taking hundreds of orangutan photos, we went back to the boat and started the return journey to Kumai and Pangkalan Bun, stopping several times along the way to see more animals on the riverbanks.

We spotted lots of blue kingfisher birds and several families of proboscis monkeys, including a mother with a baby.

We drove most of the way back to town and then spent our second night near the entrance to the Sekonyer river, where there were lots of fireflies flickering in the palm trees. It looked kind of like blinking Christmas trees.

• Day 3: Return To Pangkalan Bun

On day 3, we enjoyed a sunrise on the river and then ate breakfast before traveling approximately 1 hour back to the Kumai port, where we also had the option to visit a traditional Dayak longhouse near Pangkalan Bun.

This concluded our tour. Tanjung Puting was a wonderful trip filled with many memories! We wouldn’t change anything about our visit.  

Wildlife At Tanjung Puting National Park

One of the main reasons to go to Tanjung Puting is to see wildlife. There are hundreds of animal species here, and you have a great chance of seeing many of them when you visit.

On our 3D2N cruise at Tanjung Puting, the main animals we saw were orangutans, proboscis monkeys, macaques, kingfishers, and hornbills, plus a crocodile and monitor lizard.

We also saw pitcher plants and all kinds of bugs, frogs, and reptiles when we did the night trekking.

Long tailed macaque monkey

I don’t want to scare you, but we even had a 4 meter python crawl into the lower level of our boat during the night, and the crew had to move it back to the river!

Needless to say, after that happened we always brought our flashlights with us when we’d go down to the bathroom at night. That was a free animal sighting we didn’t ask for, but since this is the jungle you never know what you might encounter.

If you’re lucky, it’s possible to see gibbons, leaf monkeys, tarsiers, clouded leopards, wild pigs, gharials, flying foxes, Sunda leopard cats, Asian sun bears, and many other things at Tanjung Puting, although your best chance of seeing these would be to do a longer trip where you can go further inland.

The national park covers an area of 4,150 square kilometers (1,600 mi²) so obviously you can’t see everything in a short trip, but you can see some of the best highlights.

Orangutans At Tanjung Puting National Park

Of course, the star attraction at Tanjung Puting would have to be the Bornean Orangutans. You’re practically guaranteed to see orangutans here, and we saw almost a dozen orangutans on every day we spent in the park.

Tanjung Puting has the largest wild orangutan population in the world, with 30,000 to 40,000 of them living in its jungles.

The orangutans you’ll see at the feeding stations are semi-wild since they’re accustomed to seeing humans, but I wouldn’t say it’s a zoo-like experience at all. We encountered several orangutans far from the feeding areas.

You’ll see the orangutans climbing high into the tree tops, carrying their babies, and going about their daily lives, so there are plenty of opportunities to watch them in a natural setting.

Is Tanjung Puting Worth It?

There’s no denying this place is expensive by Indonesian standards. You’re looking at around 11 million Rupiah ($700 USD) for an all-inclusive 3 day, 2 night private cruise for two people. It’s hard to find a tour any cheaper than that in 2024.

Part of the reason it’s expensive is because you’re using a big boat staffed by at least 4 people, and you’re traveling up and down the river for days while burning petrol. Then you have all the meals, national park fees, and other costs involved in the trip, so everything adds up.

Is Tanjung Puting worth it? Yes, I think so, but if you’re on a smaller budget and don’t mind trekking then I would do Bukit Lawang in Sumatra first.

Lawang is cheaper and you can see much of the same wildlife, including the orangutans, gibbons, leaf monkeys, etc. There are also a lot more things to do in that area of Sumatra.

Sekonyer Black River Water

The black river

The main advantage of Tanjung Puting over Bukit Lawang is the river boat experience, which I have to say is phenomenal. It’s a very unique and enjoyable way to see the jungle.

Going to sleep at night with the bugs singing, watching the fireflies and the sunset over the river, and all of these other little details were special.

I loved sitting on the front of the boat with my camera, watching for wildlife all day as we churned through the river. There were tons of photo ops and the whole experience was loads of fun. I can’t say I’ve ever done anything quite like it.

The other advantage of Tanjung Puting over Bukit Lawang is the fact that the trekking is much easier for people who are old or unfit. When you’re trekking at Lawang, you have to deal with lots of steep ups and downs, muddy ground, and nasty thorns and leeches. It can be tough.

In contrast, Tanjung Puting has a little bit of short, easy trekking on raised boardwalks to reach each of the feeding stations, but almost anyone can do it.

Best Tanjung Puting Boat Tour

Our top tour recommendation for Tanjung Puting would be Viator. They have high-rated 3 day and 4 day tours of Tanjung Puting, and they also have shared tours for solo travelers or honeymoon tours for couples.

Obviously these tours are pricey by Indonesian standards, but they’re comparable to the rates we saw on the ground. This 3 day tour is actually a better price than what we paid for our own tour, and we made a direct booking in Pangkalan Bun. Tanjung Puting is not cheap, unfortunately.

We’ve used Viator for lots of tours and activities around the world, and they’re great. Highly recommended!

Can You Visit Tanjung Puting Without A Tour?

Since Tanjung Puting is only accessed by the river, a boat tour is required. Generally that means doing a private tour unless you can find other travelers to share a boat, which isn’t always easy.

We tried to find an open boat to join when we went to Tanjung Puting, but we didn’t have any success, even though my wife is Indonesian and we asked lots of locals near the harbor. This was on a weekday in the low season, for reference.

You could probably find a shared boat if you go on a weekend in the high season (especially July and August), but there still aren’t any guarantees. This is one place where your options are pretty limited.

For that reason, I think it’s best to book a tour in advance rather than going to the harbor and trying your luck.

Other Tips For Tanjung Puting

  • Camera: Most of the time you’ll be at least 15 to 30 meters away from the orangutans and other animals, so a good zoom lens really helps here. I used a 70-300mm lens on a Fuji X-T5 (APS-C) camera. If you’re lucky, sometimes the animals will come closer to you.
  • Cell Service: We had good 3G/4G signal with Telkomsel until we reached Tanjung Harapan, where we camped for the first night. We lost reception completely on the second day as we drove to Pondok Tanggui and Camp Leakey, and then didn’t have it until the third day, when we passed Tanjung Harapan again on the way back to town.
  • Crocodiles: Do not swim in the Sekonyer river under any circumstances! There are crocodiles here and they’ve killed people in the past when they decided to take a dip. Even if you can’t see them, they’re lurking under the surface.
  • Drones: The park doesn’t allow drones at the camps or anywhere near the orangutans, which is good. However, you can fly a drone from your boat when you’re cruising on the river. I coordinated this with my boat driver and was able to get some neat pictures of the river from above.
  • Mosquitoes: Since this is a jungle, naturally there are plenty of mosquitoes. When the boat is moving there’s a nice breeze and they can’t come after you. However, when you get off the boat for trekking you’ll always want to spray yourself with repellant. Long sleeves would be a good idea too. When you’re sleeping at night, every boat company will provide a mosquito net for the bed. Double check and make sure. I wouldn’t go to Tanjung Puting overnight without a mosquito net.
  • Malaria: According to this Lancet study from 2018, Malaria has been eliminated from Tanjung Puting and this area of Kalimantan, which is great news. Even so, I would still err on the side of caution and always protect yourself from bites. We didn’t take Malaria pills.
  • Tipping: It’s not customary to tip for anything in Indonesia, but it’s always appreciated if you do. At Tanjung Puting, a nice tip for the guide would be something like 100k Rupiah per day spent on the boat, and 50k per day for the rest of the boat crew. Again, this is optional and not expected, but these guys do a great job so you’ll probably want to give them a little something extra.

Other Tips For Pangkalan Bun

  • Cash: You can use your credit card to pay for your flights, hotels, and boat cruise, which should cover almost all of your expenses for Tanjung Puting. If you need anything else in town, cash is king.
  • Hotels: If you need a place to stay before or after your visit to Tanjung Puting, there are plenty of comfortable hotels in Pangkalan Bun. Some good options are Arsela , Brits , Grand Kecubung , and Mercure Hotel . For budget travelers, there’s Mimi Guest House , Almas Guest House , and others.
  • Restaurants: There are plenty of places to eat in the town of Pangkalan Bun. We ate several times at Ayam Bakar Wong Solo and they can deliver food to your hotel if you WhatsApp them. There’s even a KFC and Pizza Hut in town if you’re craving western food.

How Long To Stay At Tanjung Puting National Park

We stayed at Tanjung Puting for 3 days and 2 nights, and I thought that was perfect. Anything less than 3 days wouldn’t be enough, in my opinion, and a day trip is definitely too short.

Most people probably won’t need more than 3 days at Tanjung Puting, although I’m sure a longer trip like 5 to 7 days would be a lot of fun if you have the budget and don’t mind living on a boat for that long.

The jungle is wonderful, but after awhile you do start to miss the luxuries of modern living.

When To Visit Tanjung Puting National Park

The best time to visit Tanjung Puting depends on what you’re looking for.

During the dry season, from May to August, the weather is more sunny and temperatures are milder and cooler. This is the best weather for visiting Tanjung Puting since you’re less likely to get rained on.

Unfortunately, the dry season is also the high season, so the park can be a lot more crowded with boats and tourists. There can be up to 100 boats in the park at a time, and you may struggle to get an ideal spot at the feeding stations unless you show up before the crowd, although your guide can help with this.

During the rainy season, especially from November to April, the weather during the day can be hot and humid, at 32 to 35 °C (90 to 95 °F). There’s a lot more rain in these months, but the park is also much less crowded, and the rain is mostly at night.

We visited Tanjung Puting during the rainy season (late November) and had a great trip. There was a little bit of rain on the first day, and a huge downpour during the night, but we were able to stay dry in the boat so it didn’t really affect us.

Tanjung Puting, Home to the Amazing Orangutans

Relax on board your boat and take in the sights of monkeys jumping from tree to tree. The park is home to around eight species of monkeys including the very distinctive proboscis monkey, with its distinctive long nose it is sure to grab your attention. Try to spot wild orangutans swinging through the thick and lush vegetation. Remember to keep your eyes out for crocodiles too, they might be hard to spot but they’re definitely there! As well as this, the park is also a haven for over 220 species of birds.

Camp Leakey, the Orangutans Preservation

One of the main attractions of Tanjung Puting is Camp Leakey, the orangutans preservation. The camp was founded in 1971 as a haven for orangutans rescued from domestic capture. Today the camp remains a center of research of these amazing animals. Learn more about orangutans at the Camp Leakey information center. The daily feedings of wild orangutans will be the highlight of your visit as you will most likely get to see wild orangutans up close in their natural habitat. Camp Leakey was named after Dr Louis Leakey, the mentor of one of the camps founder’s Professor Birute Galdikas.

Pondok Tangui is also a rehabilitation center for ex-captive orangutans located in the park which has daily feedings of the apes. At both center, you will get the chance to see these amazing primates up close and learn more about how we can protect this endangered species of Borneo island. The park is also home to monkeys, birds and other wildlife, not to mention the pristine vegetation of the jungle itself. This is a world famous natural treasure which attracts a growing number of international visitors each year.

In the jungle there is no other option but to get around by foot so a visit to Tanjung Puting will involve walking in the great outdoors. As you trek through the tropical surrounds you’ll need to keep your eyes peeled for orangutans, monkeys, bush pigs and wild deer as you go. Search for native wildlife sites including the great bird life while you take in the sights of a truly exotic tropical jungle.

Walks can be tailored to your level of fitness so discuss the different options with your guide before you set out. While you are staying on the river, traditional boats called klotoks will transport you around.

To explore the park, visitors must take a boat down the Sekonyer River from Pangkalan Bun . These boats will accommodate you for the duration of your stay in Tanjung Punting. Flights run from Jakarta and other major cities to Pangkalan Bun daily.

A number of tour operators run cruises from Pangkalan Bun down the river. If you pre-arrange your tour, the tour operator will pick you up from the airport and transport you straight to the river.

Tanjung Puting National Park is a national park in Indonesia famous for its orangutan conservation - although much of its half a million hectares is now degraded habitat.

This national park is in the southeast part of the West Kotawaringin Regency in the Indonesian province of Central Kalimantan (in Central Borneo). and the nearest towns are the regency capital of Pangkalan Bun and the harbour city of Kumai .

Understand [ edit ]

tanjung puting tourism

Borneo is second only to tropical rainforests in Amazonia, Brasil and the Congo in being a biodiversity hotspot and, although constantly threatened by corrupt officials colluding with illegal loggers together with other human population pressures such as trapping for the illegal pet trade.

Several ecosystems are present, such as lowland tropical forest, freshwater swamp forest, mangroves and coastal forests together with secondary forest growth.

This is a great place for orchid lovers since there are a number of small "blackwater" rivers that drain the fairly acidic and tidal soils. One reason for the relatively intact survival of this part of Kalimanatan is that the soils are relatively infertile for conventional agriculture with pH ranges of 3.8−7.0 and there are peat bogs of up to 3 m in depth.

History [ edit ]

Much of this area was designated a game reserve in 1935 and this formed the nucleus of the land gazetted as a National Park in 1982. While this area has a somewhat patchwork history of weak protection, it nonetheless remains substantially wild and natural.

Landscape [ edit ]

A low lying and swampy peninsula that juts into the Java Sea with a mis-shapen spine of seasonally drying ground that rarely rises more than a few metres above the ubiquitous wetlands. There are some gentle hills and gold-bearing alluvial plains in the north but these do not top one sixty metres. Really huge forest giants are almost completely absent, one having to go to Sabah or Sarawak to see really humungous Bornean specimens since protection from illegal logging has been relatively more stringent in that Malaysia.

Flora and fauna [ edit ]

tanjung puting tourism

As well as the orangutan conservation program based at Camp Leakey research station, most visitors are just as interested in this park's proboscis monkeys ( Nasalis larvatus ), the adult males of which would offer stout competition to Cyrano de Bergerac in the nose department and reminiscent of Papposilenus in their gas-distended bellies and loud belches. There are also seven other primate species that are regularly seen such as red leaf-eating monkeys endemic to Borneo.

Clouded leopards, civets, and Malaysian sun bears are all frequently seen by park visitors, as well as barking deer, mouse deer, sambar deer, and the wild cattle known as banteng . Twitchers at Tanjung Puting frequently notch up more than 200 species of birds, including deep forest birds such as hornbills and many wetland species. This national park is well known for its "bird lakes" - seasonal créches for many species of endangered water birds, including the only known Bornean nesting grounds for white egrets.

Tanjung Puting also has two species of crocodiles, dozens of snakes and frogs, and hordes of fish, including the "good luck bringing" and highly endangered "dragon fish" also known as the Arwana (bony-tongue).

Flamboyant butterflies, and moths abound.

Climate [ edit ]

The (relatively) dry season is usually from May through to September with rainfall averaging 2000−3000 mm over the course of a year.

Get in [ edit ]

Take a flight from Jakarta , Surabaya , Sampit, Semarang or several other cities to nearby Pangkalanbun (Iskandar Airport PKN  IATA ). It is recommended to arrange a tour in advance by contacting a tour company or a local guide. They usually pick their clients from the airport.

Fees and permits [ edit ]

Get around [ edit ].

Rivers are the most convenient way to reach the depth of the park, and most tours are done on a special boat called "klotok" which also serves as a house and as a restaurant.

tanjung puting tourism

Tanjung Puting is one of the natural wonders of the world. You may not believe this after you have been there only two days or three days, but after the fourth or fifth day something happens.

You are captivated completely by the purity of the air, the openness of the night sky with the most remarkable view of the Milky Way, the magnificence and dignity of the gentle orangutans, the thundering downpours that instantly cool the air, and the clarity of the brilliant crimson sunsets. Tanjung Puting is the largest and most diverse protected example of extensive coastal tropical heath and peat swamp forest which used to cover much of southern Borneo. The area was originally declared as a game reserve in 1935 and a National Park in 1982. While the Park has a checkered history of weak protection, nonetheless, it remains substantially wild and natural.

tanjung-puting-map

“Clouded leopards, civets, and Malaysian sun bears cavort in the park as do mouse deer, barking deer, sambar deer, and the wild cattle known as banteng.”

The best known animals in Tanjung Puting are the orangutans, made famous through the long-term efforts of the Orangutan Research and Conservation Program (predecessor to OFI), based at the landmark Camp Leakey research station. Tanjung Puting also boasts the bizarre looking proboscis monkey with its “Jimmy Durante” nose as well as seven other primate species. Clouded leopards, civets, and Malaysian sun bears cavort in the park, as do mouse deer, barking deer, sambar deer, and the wild cattle known as banteng. Tanjung Puting hosts over 230 species of birds, including hornbills, deep forest birds, and many wetland species. Tanjung Puting is well known for its “bird lakes,” seasonal rookeries for a half a dozen species of endangered waterbirds, including the only known Bornean nesting grounds for white egrets. Tanjung Puting also has two species of crocodiles, dozens of snakes and frogs, numerous threatened species, including the fortune-bringing and highly endangered “dragon” fish also known as the Arwana (bony-tongue). Among the most flamboyant of these animals are the many species of colorful birds, butterflies, and moths found in the Park.

Sekonyer River in Tanjung Puting National Park

Tanjung Puting sits on a peninsula that juts out into the Java Sea. The peninsula is low lying and swampy with a spine of dry ground which rises a few feet above the omnipresent swamp. The north of Tanjung Puting is characterized by gentle hills and gold-bearing alluvial plains. In the past maps of the region commonly portrayed a ridge of mountains coming down into Tanjung Puting. This mountainous ridge does not exist; in fact, nowhere does the altitude rise above 100-200 feet in Tanjung Puting.

Tanjung Puting is a veritable hothouse of ecodiversity. The diverse habitat zones shelter slightly different fauna and flora providing a great variety of microhabitats for plants and animals and thus, the opportunity for many species to be present in close proximity. In a Bornean context, tropical heath forest by itself is not representative of the largest trees, the tallest canopy, or the most diverse ecosystem.

“Tanjung Puting also boasts the bizarre looking proboscis monkey with its “Jimmy Durante” nose as well as seven other primate species.”

Tropical swamp ecosystems are little represented in protected areas throughout Southeast Asia but are omnipresent in Tanjung Puting. In the peat swamp forest, many trees have stilt roots or aerial roots as adaptations to frequent flooding.

Aside from its remarkable biological attributes, Tanjung Puting is highly important for the well-being of the surrounding local human population. The wetlands provide vital ecological services such as flood control, stream control regulation, erosion control, natural biological filtration system, and seasonal nurseries for fish which are the major source of local animal protein. Many of these services have an impact well beyond the local area. For instance, the waters surrounding Tanjung Puting attract fishing vessels from many different parts of Indonesia. In addition, local people benefit from a great variety of forest products including honey, waxes, aromatic woods, fibers for ropes and cloth, medicinal plants, fuel oils, thatching materials, rattan, firewood, incense, wild rubber, edible latexes, resins, natural pesticides, fungicides and possible virocides.

Sekonyer River in Tanjung Puting National Park

For the above reasons and many other reasons not noted, Tanjung Puting is recognized as one of the most important and outstanding provincial treasures in Kalimantan Tengah. The national government has also made a strong commitment to protect the forest, its wildlife, and to manage the park wisely. Tanjung Puting has increasingly gained international prestige and recognition. As a result, more and more visitors from all over the world are experiencing a fresh new outlook on nature and an appreciation of the tropical rain forest which was humankind’s original “Garden of Eden.”

Established

  • As a game reserve in 1935
  • As a national park in 1982

The peat swamp and fresh water swamp forest associations present in Tanjung Puting were at one time extensive along the south coast of Borneo from Banjarmasin in the east to the Kapuas River near Pontianak in the west. These swamps extended up the northwest coast of Sarawak and Brunei and as far as the Klias peninsula in Sabah. In Sarawak in general, peat swamp forests are very well developed and they are still very important there as a natural resource. In Kalimantan, however, much of the swamp habitat has been converted, both permanently and on shifting cultivation basis, to rice fields. Swamp habitats, as found in Tanjung Puting, are becoming more difficult to find. Although Tanjung Puting has suffered some encroachment from human activity, the Park area is still wild and pristine. The vegetation supports a large population of animals, making this one of the most important areas in Southeast Asia for the preservation primates, birds, reptiles and fish.

TANJUNG PUTING NATIONAL PARK

Tanjung Puting National Park is one of the leading national parks on the island of Borneo. This national park is well-known as the location of the first orangutan rehabilitation center in Indonesia which was spearheaded by one of the three women who revolutionized primatology studies, Dr. Birute Galdikas. In Tanjung Puting, there are three historic locations for rehabilitation of orangutan, namely Tanjung Harapan, Pondok Tanggui, and Camp Leakey, all of which you can visit. This national park has several different ecosystems, home to several endemic and protected endangered species such as Orangutan (Pongo Satyrus), Proboscis Monkey (Nasalis Larvatus), Maroon Leaf Monkey (Presbytis rubicunda rubida), Bear (Helarctos malayanus erysipelas), Deer (Tragulus javanicus) close), clouded leopards (Neofelis nebulosa), and cats (Prionailurus bengalensis borneoensis). We invite you to visit this natural tourism site for 3 days 2 nights by using a traditional wooden boat with comfortable facilities to see the beautiful natural scenery of Borneo and get to know more about the results of a project that had been carried out by Dr. Birute Galdikas since 1971.

Orangutans in Borneo: A Guide to Tanjung Puting National Park

Sarah would tell you the highlight of our trip to indonesia was seeing orangutans in borneo. we got engaged in indonesia, but still—orangutans in borneo., in indonesia, we visited borobudur, mount bromo, and komodo island. none compare to mythical borneo. more specifically, tanjung puting national park—possibly the coolest place in the world to see orangutans., visitors access the park via two-story live-aboard boats called klotoks. while it requires some planning, the pay-off is a life-affirming experience. this guide will tell you what you need to know about planning a trip to tanjung puting and what to expect once you arrive, search the guide.

About Tanjung Puting National Park  → When to visit   →   Book your klotok early →   How do I get there?  →   How many days and how much?  →   Cruising the black water   →   Tell us about the animals!  →   Sleeping on the klotok  →   Eating on the klotok  →   The klotok crew  →   The klotok crew ladder  →   Tipping the crew  →   Keeping the bugs off  →   What to wear

About Tanjung Puting National Park

Tanjung puting is 1600 square miles of swampy forest on borneo’s southern coast. wildlife viewing focuses around camp leakey and three small research stations along the sekonyer river. birutė galdikas, one of the famous “leakey’s angels,” founded camp leakey in 1971 as a research and rehabilitation center for orangutans..

When to visit

In tanjung puting, june through september is the dry season, making it the optimal time to visit for two reasons: 1) nobody wants to be rained on (duh); and 2) the orangutans and other wildlife are more likely to visit the park’s feeding stations when food is scarcer during the dry season., book your klotok early, everybody wants to visit in the dry season, so klotoks get booked up. kumai, the launch point for tanjung puting, is a small fishing village and there are only so many boats available. we started inquiring a month in advance for dates in august and most operators were already completely full. after contacting five or six operators, we found one boat available leaving on a workable date. local guides provides online booking, but mostly you need to inquire about availability via email or telephone., how do i get there, almost everyone flies in and out of pangkalan bun. flights are limited, but we flew in from semarang on trigana air and flew out to surabaya on kalstar. if you fly in during the morning, your operator will pick you up and take you straight to the departure point in kumai. on the final day, our guide dropped us off at a hotel in pangkalan bun and scheduled an airport taxi for us in the morning., how many days and how much, we spent three days and two nights on the boat. that felt perfect for the amount of distance you need to cover without feeling rushed. if you are interested in hiking, you could stay longer. for two of us, it cost rp 6,000,000 (about $445 in 2015). tips added another rp 1,500,000 (see tipping advice below). we paid a 30 percent deposit via paypal and the rest in cash on arrival. ( update: reader feedback suggests the average price is a bit higher. the two other quotes we received were for $772 and $810, so it pays to look around.)  local guides  publishes rates online., cruising the black water, as you travel up the sekonyer river, the brackish water gives way to inky glass. tannins from jungle leaves fall to the floor and dye the water jet black, reflecting the trees above., tell us about the animals, obviously you come to tanjung puting for the orangutans. seeing the “man of the forest” travel through the trees is gorillas-in-the-mist amazing. there are also macaques, wild boar, crocodiles, and tons of proboscis monkeys (also called dutch monkeys—an indonesian reference to their former colonizers). the jungle features many animals that are a little harder to spot, but fun to look for. the gibbon (pictured below stealing bananas) is a stone-cold badass., whether on the boat, sitting at a feeding station, or walking the trail, there are tons of animals to see. your guide will point you in the right direction., sleeping on the klotok, klotoks come in various sizes. larger ones have guest cabins. ours was one of the smaller ones, with mattresses set up on the top deck under an awning. each night, the crew set up our beds, complete with mosquito nets. we saw one cockroach, but we were surprised how few bugs there were on the whole trip. the permethrin probably helped. our malaria pills were likely unnecessary., eating on the klotok, the price of the booking includes meals and drinks. we ate banana pancakes, fresh fish, and mie goreng (fried noodles), among other indonesian dishes. tea and coffee were always available. this was especially nice to sip while cruising down the river in the afternoon., the klotok crew, our crew consisted of a guide, ship captain, captain’s assistant, and cook. our guide, mr. dodi, went above and beyond to answer our million questions and make us comfortable. the rest of the crew always seemed to know when we were hungry or thirsty, and delivered us to the various camps with as much stopping to view wildlife as we desired. our tour operator, ali mashuri, was pleasant when we met briefly in kumai and responsive to our emails. his website is here: https://www.orangutantourstanjungputing.com/ . we highly recommend them., the klotok crew ladder, mr. dodi explained to us the progression of crew members. typically, the cook is an entry level position. then you progress to boat captain assistant, then boat captain, and finally to guide. the speed you move up depends partially on how quickly you can learn other languages. our guide, having never left borneo, spoke english, french, and spanish in addition to his local language and indonesian. he was working on german and italian. he learned all of this while working on a klotok listening to guides and foreigners., tipping the crew, given the time commitment from the guide and crew, you will want to tip at the end. researching etiquette gives varied results. one tour operator says “tipping your guide and your team is necessary and is an important part of their job satisfaction and financial reward. it is customary to tip them around 15 – 20 % of your journey price, depending on your satisfaction of their services. our best suggestion on this is for you to share the amount according to the level of their duties.” another tour operator says tipping is “not compulsory, or expected, so it’s completely up to you.” the operator gives examples of rp 50-150k for the cook and boat captain and 150-500k for the guide. our opinion: your tips will mean a lot to the crew and create an incentive to preserve tanjung puting, so err on the side of generosity. we decided on 10 percent for the guide and 5 percent for each crew member., keeping the bugs off, before traveling to indonesia, we sprayed our clothes with permethrin and it worked amazingly well. for sarah, who is insanely attracted to bug bites, we were especially worried about malaria. whether it was the permethrin or a general lack of bugs in the dry season, we barely noticed any bugs on the whole trip. we purchased this particular  permethrin  bottle from amazon which was enough for each of us to saturate a couple sets of clothes we designated for buggy areas., what to wear, the climate is warm/hot and can get humid when walking in the jungle. bring a hat and sunscreen to avoid a sun burn. the nights get a little cooler, but we were more than comfortable with light hiking pants and long sleeve shirts. sarah wore yoga gloves soaked in permethrin ., anything else you want to know about seeing orangutans in tanjung puting let us know in the comments., like this post pin it for later.

Ferdinand

Hi Sterlin, Thank you for all the valuable tips. I am not preparing my own trip to Tanjung Puting. I asked for a quote with Ali Mashuri, and it appeared to be quite expensive compared to other quotes I got from Siti or local-guides. For example, local-guides (http://www.local-guides.org) appears to offer the same 3D2N tour for 30% less! The packages all appear to be the same from a first glance, or does Mashuri to your knowledge offer anything more than the other tour operators to justify the higher prices? Thanks a lot! I found all the other advices in your …  Read more »

Sterling Laudon

Hi Ferdinand, So happy you found it useful! My guess regarding prices is that, like many things in southeast Asia, the price is negotiable and changes based on demand (unlike tours at home with standard rates). Possibly Mr. Mashuri had a boat open for a narrow window of dates and he gave us a lower price to fill it. We contacted several operators and Mr. Mashuri’s was the least expensive offer. We never tried to counter-offer, but it might be possible. As far as I know, tours offering the same itinerary are all pretty similar. Getting a good guide really …  Read more »

Thanks, Sterling! I forgot to mention that the prices from Mashuri that I used in my comparison were after bargaining, but I may be a terrible negotiator hah. For a terrific guide it is surely worth it to pay more, but I have to say that I have had so far in my correspondence a terrific experience with local-guides: they are very helpful in their replies, and I like it that they are transparent about their – relatively low – rates on their website (with all the other’s i had to e-mail them first and then i receive quotes that …  Read more »

Even Borneo is modernizing a little. I remember needing to email everyone a couple years ago. Enjoy your trip!

Tanjung Puting National Park

  • Borobudur Temple
  • Bromo Tengger Semeru
  • Ende Kelimutu
  • Komodo National Park
  • Kuta, Sanur, Nusa Dua
  • Lake Batur, Kintamani
  • Menjangan Island and Pemuteran
  • Mount Rinjani
  • Thousand Islands

The park, which covers territory the size of Bali, is home to an amazing array of wildlife including its world famous orangutans. The park is also home to monkeys, birds and other wildlife, not to mention the pristine vegetation of the jungle itself. This is a world famous natural treasure which attracts a growing number of international visitors each year.

From_the_Rahaii_Pangun_deck_MAIN.jpg

Tanjung Puting is located in Central Kalimantan. The area was originally declared as a game reserve in 1935 and became a national park in 1982. The park sits on a peninsula that juts out into the Java sea. The sheer size of the park means that it has diverse habitat zones. This diversity means the park is home to a great variety of inhabitants, both flora and fauna.

The incredible jungle surrounds make this an amazing place to visit if you’re after a truly outdoor adventure. It is an oasis of pure clean air, a clear night sky as well as a home to the gentle people of the jungle – the orangutans.

ORANGUTAN_KIAT_MAIN.JPG

The orangutans are undoubtedly the best known inhabitants of the park.  With around three quarters of the world’s orangutan’s population living on Borneo, this park is the ideal place to see these incredible creatures in the wild.

Because the vegetation of Tanjung Puting supports a large population of animals this park is one of the most important areas in Southeast Asia for the preservation of primates, birds, reptiles and fish.

Getting There To explore the park, visitors must take a boat down the Sekonyer River from Pangkalan Bun. These boats will accommodate you for the duration of your stay in Tanjung Punting.

Flights run from Jakarta and other major cities to Pangkalan Bun daily.

Getting Around In the jungle there is no other option but to get around by foot so a visit to Tanjung Puting will involve walking in the great outdoors. As you trek through the tropical surrounds you’ll need to keep your eyes peeled for orangutans, monkeys, bush pigs and wild deer as you go. Search for native wildlife including the great birdlife while you take in the sights of a truly exotic tropical jungle.

Walks can be tailored to your level of fitness so discuss the different options with your guide before you set out. While you are  staying on the river, traditional boats called klotoks will transport you around. 

To Do The Sekonyer river is famous for it’s natural beauty and wildlife. As you cruise down through the jungle, you’ll be transported to another world, a world far beyond the hustle and bustle of city life.

Relax on board your boat and take in the sights of monkeys jumping from tree to tree. The park is home to around eight species of monkeys including the very distinctive proboscis monkey, with its distinctive long nose it is sure to grab your attention. Try to spot wild orangutans swinging through the thick and lush vegetation. Remember to keep your eyes out for crocodiles too, they might be hard to spot but they’re definitely there! As well as this, the park is also a haven for over 220 species of birds.

To Stay The majority of visitors to Tanjung Puting travel via boat and stay on board during their time in the park. There are also limited options to stay in simple hotels and homestays.

  • Take mosquito repellent, sunscreen and a torch. 
  • Don’t forget your camera, you’ll want to record every moment of your experience up close with the orangutans.

Don't use AC boats for more luxury. AC is not needed in Tanjung Puting because of the fresh breeze and the comfortable night temperatures. Moreover, AC boats have a big environmental footprint, make more noise, create bigger waves (disturbing the wildlife in the river), and lock you behind windows, spoiling the jungle vibe. Also, they're expensive.

Instead, just stay overnight at the Rimba ecolodge , located at the edge of the park. The rooms have AC, WiFi, and hot water. This is cheaper and more comfortable. We can book the ecolodge against local tariffs, and transfer you to/from the lodge during the tour. But for the magical jungle experience you should sleep on the boat deep in the jungle.

This tour was more than we expected ! Beyond imagination…and it is not only about seeing orangutans and other animals.

FAQ on Tanjung Puting

What is the price of an orangutan klotok tour.

You can instantly check all our prices and availabilities in our online booking form .

Note: All the presented prices are for a private tour, which means the boat is exclusively for you and your group and you don't share it with other travelers.

Where to stay in Pangkalan Bun?

It is common for visitors to start the tour upon arrival at the airport, and to fly out on the same day the tour ends. In order to start the tour rested and to accommodate the risk of a delay of your flight, you could consider to start the tour on the day after your arrival and spend the night at a good hotel in Pangkalan Bun.

Because the tour ends early on the last day, there is no need to stay overnight at the end of the tour, except if you would like to rest and enjoy a hot shower before flying to your next destination.

Recommended hotels in Pangkalan Bun in the top, middle and budget segment are the Grand Kecubung Hotel , Arsela Hotel and Hotel Bahagia , respectively.

How to get to Tanjung Puting National Park?

Fly to Pangkalan Bun. There are direct flights between Pangkalan Bun and Jakarta, Semarang and Surabaya. You can check and book domestic flights via Traveloka .

If you start the tour on the same day of your arrival, we will simply pick you up at the airport and start the tour right away. However, we advice you to arrive the day before your tour starts and stay overnight in Pangkalan Bun. The next morning we would pick you up at the lobby of your hotel and start the tour.

PS: While rare, flights to Pangkalan Bun are cancelled sometimes, and when that happens it is usually on a very short notice. This is a stressful event, further exacerbated by a poor reachability of the customer service of airlines. If your orangutan tour starts on the same morning that your flight should arrive in Pangkalan Bun, then a flight cancellation usually means that you have to take a flight on the next morning; your tour starts a day later and you have to shorten your tour by one day. Since we prepare everything for the dates that you have booked, you would have to pay the full price also if we have to shorten the tour by a day. To prevent that a flight cancellation ruins your holiday, we advice you to take at least one of the following measures to accommodate flight cancellations:

  • Take a travel insurance
  • Arrive in Pangkalan Bun the day before your tour starts
  • Start on the day you arrive, but book at least 4 days for the orangutan tour. If everything goes fine you just have a nice 4 day tour without any travel insurance fees. If your flight gets cancelled, you could still do the 3 day tour which is sufficient to see everything, and the extra price you have paid for the 4 day tour can be considered as an insurance fee.

What time does the tour start/end?

Start. We will align the exact pick-up time with you ahead of the tour. If you stay overnight in Pangkalan Bun, we pick you up at the lobby of your hotel between 9 am and 10 am. In case you arrive in Pangkalan Bun on the same day that your tour starts, we pick you up at the airport and start the tour immediately. If you land before 11:30 am we will follow the default tour itinerary. We can also accommodate (but not advice) an arrival in the afternoon, but then you obviously will have less time in the park.

Note: In order to see the feeding at Tanjung Harapan - which starts at 3pm - we need to leave Pangkalan Bun latest at 11:30 am . It is recommended to fly to Pangkalan Bun the day before the tour starts to avoid that a flight cancellation (small but real chance) would ruin the trip.

End. The last day is only a cruise back to Kumai, and the tour ends after breakfast. We will leave Tanjung Puting National Park early in the morning, and you will be dropped off at your hotel or at the airport in the early morning. Ideally you fly out on your last day between 8:30 am and 2 pm, but also in case you have an early flight to catch, no worries: As long as you mention your flight schedule and you are ok with getting up early, you can also catch a flight as early as 7:30 am.

Should I arrive the day before the tour starts in Pangkalan Bun?

Yes! In fact, this is such an important point, that we emphasize this also in other parts of this FAQ.

While rare, flights to Pangkalan Bun are cancelled sometimes, and when that happens it is usually on a very short notice. This is a stressful event, further exacerbated by a poor reachability of the customer service of airlines. If your orangutan tour starts on the same morning that your flight should arrive in Pangkalan Bun, then a flight cancellation usually means that you have to take a flight on the next morning; your tour starts a day later and you have to shorten your tour by one day. Since we prepare everything for the dates that you have booked, you would have to still pay the full price also if we have to shorten the tour by a day. To prevent that a flight cancellation ruins your holiday, we advice you to take at least one of the following measures to accommodate flight cancellations:

  • If you want to start the tour right away regardless, then book at least a 4 day orangutan tour. If everything goes fine you just have a nice orangutan tour without any travel insurance fees. If your flight gets cancelled, you could still do that is shortened by one day, and the extra price you have paid is the replacement of a travel insurance fee.

What happens if my flight to Pangkalan Bun is cancelled?

While rare, flights to Pangkalan Bun are cancelled sometimes , and when that happens it is usually on a very short notice. This is a stressful event, further exacerbated by a poor reachability of the customer service of airlines.

If your orangutan tour starts on the same morning that your flight should arrive in Pangkalan Bun, then a flight cancellation usually means that your tour starts a day later and you have to shorten your tour by one day. Since we prepare everything for the dates that you have booked, you would have to still pay the full price also if we have to shorten the tour by a day .

To prevent that a flight cancellation ruins your holiday, we advice you to take at least one of the following measures to accommodate the possibility of a flight cancellations:

  • Take a travel insurance.
  • Arrive in Pangkalan Bun the day before your tour starts.
  • If you want to start the tour right away regardless, then book at least a 4 day orangutan tour. If everything goes fine you just have a nice orangutan tour without any travel insurance fees. If your flight gets cancelled, you could still do that is shortened by one day, and the extra price you have paid you should see as basically the replacement of a travel insurance fee.

What is the best period to visit Tanjung Puting National Park?

You can visit Tanjung Puting throughout the year. The temperature is rather constant and while it is often raining in Kalimantan, historically the most dry period has been July-September and the most wet period has been January and February. However, in recent years the rainfall has been more unpredictable, so the above should not be delt with too strictly.

Partly for the above reason, the most popular period to visit Tanjung Puting among travelers is between June and September . However, besides the weather advantages of this period, there are several downside of doing your tour in the period June - September:

  • It is very crowded , which spoils the experience for some people.
  • It is relatively expensive since there is a lot of demand and limited boat availability.

Considering the crowds and the value for money, in our opinion the best time to visit Tanjung Puting is in the shoulder months March & May and October & November . Even the wet months (December, January, February) are very nice months for visitation since the wet season is usually relatively mild in Tanjung Puting National Park.

In case you don't have the flexibility and are restricted to the high season period, as long as you manage your expectations that it will be crowded and you book your tour well on time (at least 5 months notice), you will still have a wonderful experience!

Should I take the 3D, 4D or 5D tour?

3D2N. We advice to take the 3D2N tour if you want to see as much as possible in as little time as possible. It is fantastic value for money as you get to see all feeding stations in Tanjung Puting. Unfortunately, you will not have any time for a short trek, or a night trek. 

Note: It is recommended to arrive in Pangkalan Bun the day before the tour starts, which is important in particular for the 3D2N Orangutan Tour. If your orangutan tour starts on the same morning that your flight should arrive in Pangkalan Bun, then a flight cancellation usually means that you have to take a flight on the next morning; your tour starts a day later and you have to shorten your tour by one day. Since a 3D2N orangutan tour is the bare minimum that is recommended, shortening the 3D2N tour by one day is impractical. Moreover, since we prepare everything for the dates that you have booked, you would still have to pay the full price for the tour you have booked and not for the tour you got following your flight cancellation.

4D3N. The 4D3N tour we advice to anyone who would like to take the time in Tanjung Puting and is especially interested to combine visiting the feeding stations with short jungle treks and a night walk . You would also visit a  reforestation site and the  Sekonyer jungle village .

5D4N. The 5D4N tour we advice to anyone that is more adventurous, is into a long jungle trek , together with rangers in a more remote part of the rainforest. At the end of the jungle trek, we return to our boat by a canoe through a small jungle river. There are no other activities in Tanjung Puting that will take you further away from the crowd than this trek, but be prepared to get a little bit dirty.

What meals are served during the tour?

This is one of the things we try to stand out with!

Our goal is to spoil our guests with mouthwatering, delicious meals , because we realize that it adds to the experience to have a well prepared meal in the heart of the jungle on a romantic wooden boat. 

Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner are served in the top deck on the dining area, while the fingerfood, snacks and drinks are served throughout the day. You’ll have access all day to tea and coffee. If you have a preference for a specific drink, please let us know in advance via the booking form.

Do you have any dietary wishes?  Vegetarian, Vegan, nut or gluten allergies? No worries, we have that all the time. Just let know about it and we'll take care of it.

What are the facilities on the boat?

The boat is a traditional Klotok wooden river boat.

We use comfortable Klotoks, with simple but Western toilets and a shower, as opposed to an Indonesian squat toilet or a basket of water to shower in ("Mandi"). 

There is a top deck exclusively for you, with a dining table in the back, a lounge area in the front and mattrasses under a mosquito net that will be prepared for you in the evening. The crew is in the bottom deck.

Do I share the boat with other travelers?

No, all our orangutan tours are private. This means that the boat is exclusively for your group and that you have your own personal boat crew.

All presented prices in our booking form  correspond to a private orangutan tour.

Can I get seasick on the boat?

No, that is highly unlikely. The river is quite still, and small waves are only occasionally created by passing boats.

Will I get wet on the boat when it rains?

No. Although the boats are on default open on the sides to allow visibility towards the forest, in case of rain they can be closed completely with removable tarps.

Which animals live in Tanjung Puting National Park?

The main reason people visit Tanjung Puting is because of the Orangutans, the park is also home to the bizarre looking proboscis monkey with its “Jimmy Durante” nose as well as seven other primate species. Clouded leopards, civets, and Malaysian sun bears cavort in the park, as do mouse deer, barking deer, sambar deer, and the wild cattle known as banteng.

There are over 230 species of birds, including hornbills, deep forest birds, and many wetland species. Tanjung Puting is well known for its “bird lakes,” seasonal rookeries for a half a dozen species of endangered waterbirds, including the only known Bornean nesting grounds for white egrets.

There are two species of crocodiles (you may spot one while cruising!), dozens of snakes and frogs, numerous threatened species, including the fortune-bringing and highly endangered “dragon” fish also known as the Arwana (bony-tongue).

Among the most flamboyant of these animals are the many species of colorful birds, butterflies, and moths found in the Park.

How does the rainforest look like in Tanjung Puting National Park?

In Tanjung Puting National Park, you'll see the lasting marks of environmental harm from the 1990s, alongside the park's remarkable comeback, largely thanks to tourism.

As we float down the Sekonyer River on our Klotok, lush plants line both sides. But take a closer look: the National Park thrives on the right bank, while the left is dominated by palm oil plantations. Luckily, the National Park itself remains mostly untouched by the palm oil industry. However, rampant illegal logging before the 1990s, along with forest fires, has led to much of the rainforest regrowing, resulting in mostly secondary forest today.

The rise of orangutan tours has changed things. Local communities now benefit more from preserving the rainforest than destroying it. This has led to a remarkable recovery in recent years, making Tanjung Puting National Park a shining example of successful eco-tourism.

How much should I tip the staff?

Tipping is common in Indonesia, and the staff will be extremely happy and flattered if you decide to do so, but it is of course voluntary and not expected.

There is no rule for how much to tip, as it really depends on how satisfied you are with the service and on your budget. Some clients really insist to get an indication, so we will give the rule of thumb that for every day couples could consider tipping the guide 100.000 IDR per day and 50.000 IDR per day to the cook, captain and boat helper each.

Please consider this very indicative, and deviate from it as you wish, depending on your budget and your group size. In the end, any amount is really appreciated .

Are there other places where i can see orangutans?

Among the best places in the world to see orangutans, are Tanjung Puting National Park (Kalimantan) and Gunung Leuser National Park (Sumatra). We offer tours in both places with certified, local guides.

Both are quite well accessible by air from Jakarta. Which of the two is better, depends on your personal interests and on your budget.

Generally speaking, orangutan tours in Bukit Lawang are suitable for adventurous travelers that like relatively long treks, are in shape, and love to camp in the jungle. The tour is by foot and the accommodation is typically in basic jungle camps. We return with an exciting tube raft via the jungle river. Additional advantages are that you can combine such orangutan trek with other activities (volcano treks in Berastagi, relaxing at Lake Toba, visiting villages, cycling tours etc.) and that it is relatively cheaper than the orangutan tours in Borneo. Because the tour is private, we can easily adjust the trek length and difficulty to the ability and wishes of the group and therefore this tour is also suitable for families with children.

In contrast, the orangutan tours in Tanjung Puting are by boat as you cruise through the river, and the occassional treks are very easy and short, and the accommodation is typically on the boat. It is ideal for travelers that want the excitement of a jungle adventure, but without the practicality issues of not having a (good) toilet or shower or sleeping on a thin mattress. Another practical advantage is that the location where the tour starts and ends - Pangkalan Bun - has an airport. Although this cruise is still relatively cheap for Western standards, it is ca 2 times more expensive than the jungle treks in Bukit Lawang. Also, there are fewer activities around Tanjung Puting National Park, than around Gunung Leuser National Park.

For more information about the jungle treks in Bukit Lawang as well as the tour packages we offer there, click here .

Are there any general tips?

Here are a few additional tips that you may enhance your tour experience:

1. Although Indonesia is famous for its coffee, in our experience, tourists do not like the standard coffee served at homes or in the boat, which is basically hot water with filter coffee, but then unfiltered. So if you drink coffee, we recommend to bring your own instant coffee (or French Press).

2. You may want to consider to bring your own alcoholic drink to optimally enjoy the beautiful and romantic setting from the Klotok. If you are lucky, you can store these in the fridge of the staff, but chances are that you can only drink it warm. Alcoholic beverage is not sold in Pangkalan Bun and therefore needs to be bought before arriving here.

3. In case you have time, you will appreciate staying overnight in Pangkalan Bun before (and/or after your) tour. You'll start your tour all rested, finish your tour with a hot shower, stay longer in Tanjung Puting National Park, and don't need to stress about flight delays. The best hotel in town is the Grand Kecubung Hotel .

4. Although there are plug sockets aboard, we do not recommend to use these to charge expensive gadgets (smartphones, tablets, etc.) because the power engine of the boat does not supply a constant voltage (this holds for ALL boats). Please consider to bring an external battery charger , which can be bought at any outdoor store.

5. If you have a hammock, bring it! The ultimate chill experience is to lay down in your hammock in the klotok as you cruise through the lush jungle!

6. Bring a refillable bottle , not only for your trip to Tanjung Puting but generally for your stay in Indonesia. You would dramatically reduce your plastic consumption by not using a plastic mineral water bottles. You can refill the bottle with the large mineral water barrel we have onboard.

7. Purchase online an e-simcard before you arrive in Indonesia. You don't need a physical card (hence "e"-simcard), and there are many providers, such as MobiMatter . Download the app and just purchase it if you have a smartphone.

Reading Tips

tanjung puting tourism

For cancellations with a shorter notice period, there is no refund of the deposit.

What happens if my flight is delayed?

Our advice is to arrive in Pangkalan Bun the day before your tour starts. In case of a flight delay, there will be no implications for the tour.

In case the tour starts on the same day the flight was supposed to arrive, then a flight delay means the tour starts at the delayed arrival time. Depending on how much the flight is delayed, the itinerary may be customised. No (partial) refund applies for the shortened tour.

What happens if my flight is cancelled?

Our advice is to arrive in Pangkalan Bun the day before your tour starts. In case of a last-minute flight cancellation, a new flight could usually be booked for the next day, and there will be no implications for the tour.

In case the tour starts on the same day the flight was supposed to arrive, then a flight cancellation usually means the tour starts a day later than what was booked:

  • In case your flight is cancelled 2 weeks prior to tour start, you can change your booking details with us without penalties, but this is subject to availability.
  • In case your flight is cancelled within 2 weeks prior to tour start (usually flights are cancelled on a very short notice), we are not able to change your booking. The tour will start upon your arrival a day later, but since we have hired the boat and the boat staff for the cancelled day as well, there is no refund for the lost day. 

To prevent that a flight cancellation ruins your holiday, we advice you to take a travel insurance and book flights that arrive the day before your tour starts. 

PS: While rare, flights to Pangkalan Bun are cancelled sometimes. This is a stressful event, and since airlines are not easily reachable, sometimes clients take it out on us and demand a refund for the cancelled day. While a flight cancellation is an event beyond the client's responsibility, it is also beyond our responsibility. Our responsibility is to organize the tour for the dates that the client has booked, for which costs need to be made in advance. In return it is the client's responsibility to be here at the start of the tour. And for unforeseen events that could complicate that, clients can take a travel insurance.

Tanjung Puting National Park is a national park located in Central Kalimantan peninsula. Tanjung Putting National Park is the largest orangutan conservation in the world with an estimated population of 30,000 up to 40,000 orangutans are scattered in National Park and also outside Tanjung Puting National Park. Besides Tanjung Puting National Park is also designated a Biosphere Reserve in 1977 with a core area of Tanjung Puting National Park covering an area of 415,040 hectares were set in 1982.

With the status of national park and biosphere reserve, Tanjung Puting National Park can be maintained continuity and became one of tourist attractions in Indonesia, in contrast with the other conservation of orangutans of Borneo we see orangutans in human made habitats. Another case in Tanjung Puting National Park we can see directly the natural habitat of orangutans lives and look directly in the wild. Tanjung Puting is initially a nature reserve and wildlife reserves with a total area of 305,000 hectares.

To reach Tanjung Puting National Park the visitors can use Klotok boat, Klotok is fairly comfortable accommodations, Klotok loading passengers 7 up to 12 people. The boat pace is not too fast, so that we can enjoy the atmosphere of Sekonyer river along the road river. With this ship passengers can enjoy the sunset, firefly and wild animals are sometimes seen in the bank of river.

Most visitors of Tanjung Putting National Park are foreign tourists, because of many foreign tourists who come here to make people Pangkalan Bun and National Parks further improve their services. One example is when we use Klotok not inferior to five-star hotel services, guide and boat captain were friendly.

High season in Tanjung Puting National Park cause full booked of Klotok boat, in July to August is the high season period because it coincided with the number of public holidays and school. Along down Sekonyer river we can see monkeys swinging from one tree to another. These forests are home to eight species of primates. Including monkeys who has a long nose (proboscis), with a long nose surrounding communities call with monkeys Netherlands (monyet belanda). When down Sekonyer river to the place attractions in Tanjung Putting National Park beware of crocodiles, they are difficult to see but they exist around the river.

One of the interesting places in Tanjung Puting is Camp Leakey that is Orangutans preservation. Indeed before heading to Camp Leakey camp, there are other camps such as Tanjung Harapan, Pondok Tanggui, Pondok Ambung Camp, and the last is Camp Leakey. This camp is the largest and was built in 1971. This place is a refuge location orangutans rescued from illegal hunting. Nowadays this camp is known as a center for the study of orangutans. We can learn about orangutan at the information center Camp Leakey. In addition to the Pondok Tangui also a rehabilitation center for orangutan had been arrested. Both of this preservation center, you will get a chance to see these amazing primates up close and learn more about how we can protect endangered species from Borneo Island.

Welcome to our website! Orangutan Tour Tanjung Puting National Park offers a unique blend of experiences, combining a river journey on a Boat/Klotok with the opportunity to witness Orangutans in their natural habitat within Tanjung Puting National Park. The increasing demand from tourists to explore Tanjung Puting National Park has led to the development of the Orangutan Tour Tanjung Puting and Klotok Tour Tanjung Puting.

A boat is essential for accessing the park and exploring its various camps. To observe Orangutans, visitors must embark on a boat journey to the park. These specially designed Boats/Klotoks not only transport visitors but also serve as accommodation, allowing them to relax and enjoy the scenic views of Kalimantan’s tropical rainforest throughout the tour. The Borneo Orangutan Tour, Borneo Houseboat and Klotok Tour Kalimantan are perfect for adventurers seeking an immersive experience in nature.

We provide these Boats/Klotoks for your convenience; you can easily book them through us. As the owners of the Boats/Klotoks, we invite you to reserve your spot as soon as possible to embark on this unforgettable journey, immersing yourself in nature, and witnessing the beauty of Kalimantan/Borneo’s tropical rainforest while encountering Orangutans in Tanjung Puting National Park.

The journey begins with the gentle lapping of the water against the sides of the Boat/Klotok as it navigates the winding rivers of Tanjung Puting. The lush greenery of the rainforest envelopes you, and the air is alive with the sounds of wildlife. Keep your eyes peeled, for Orangutans may be swinging through the trees or lounging on the riverbanks, providing an awe-inspiring sight.

As you delve deeper into the heart of the park, the Boat/Klotok becomes your sanctuary. Comfortable seating areas offer a perfect vantage point for wildlife spotting, while the open deck allows you to bask in the warmth of the tropical sun. Our knowledgeable guides will regale you with tales of the park’s history and ecology, enhancing your understanding of this remarkable ecosystem.

Evenings on the Boat/Klotok are a magical affair. As the sun sets behind the canopy, the sounds of the forest change, signaling the transition from day to night. Enjoy delicious meals prepared by our onboard chef, featuring local delicacies and fresh produce. After dinner, relax under the stars, lulled by the gentle sway of the boat and the chorus of nocturnal creatures.

Wake up to the dawn chorus as the forest comes alive with the first light of day. After a hearty breakfast, set out on a series of excursions deep into the jungle. Trek through dense foliage, accompanied by experienced guides who will point out the diverse flora and fauna of Tanjung Puting. Keep your camera ready, for you never know what wonders you may encounter around the next bend.

Of course, the highlight of any Orangutan Tour is the chance to observe these incredible creatures up close. Tanjung Puting is home to one of the largest populations of wild Orangutans in the world, offering unparalleled opportunities for sightings. Watch in awe as these intelligent primates swing effortlessly through the trees, foraging for food and caring for their young.

As your journey draws to a close, take a moment to reflect on the profound connection you’ve forged with nature. The Orangutan Tour Tanjung Puting offers more than just a vacation; it’s an opportunity to immerse yourself in the wonders of the natural world and make memories that will last a lifetime. So why wait? Book your adventure today and embark on the journey of a lifetime with Orangutan Tour Tanjung Puting and Borneo Houseboat.
