If you’re looking at holidays to Borneo, then this unique trip combines the best of Tanjung Puting National Park’s orang-utan research stations and rehabilitation centres with some excellent jungle trekking and camping deep in the Borneo rainforest. You get a unique experience to witness at first hand the work of a team of dedicated conservationists striving to preserve the habitat of these magnificent orang-utans Although the park is protected by the national government the environment of these wonderful creatures is threatened by the powerful commercial interests of the oil palm industry and illegal loggers. Therefore, responsible travel holidays and eco- friendly holidays to Borneo have never been more important as we help to fund and support the work of the Friends of the National Parks of Indonesia- one of the most effective but low key NGO’s working in Borneo, Indonesia today.
Tanjung Puting National Park is arguably the best place in Borneo to see orang-utans as it’s home to the densest population anywhere in the whole of Borneo. You’ll also see the charismatic and rare proboscis monkey, the false gavial crocodile and a huge range of tropical birds.
Spend your time on board a river boat (klotok), a great way to enter deep into the Borneo rainforest.
