Orang-utan at feeding time, Tanjung Puting, Indonesia

Visit Tanjung Puting National Park

Tanjung Puting National Park, Indonesia

Situated in southwest Kalimantan, Tanjung Puting is one of the more accessible national parks on the island.

Making your way through narrow backwaters under the jungle canopy by local klotok boat gives you a serene view of the unspoilt rainforest and the best chance of spotting primates, crocodiles and birdlife.

Camp Leakey Orang-utan Rehabilitation Centre

In the depths of the park the renowned Camp Leakey Orang-utan Rehabilitation Centre has been caring for orphaned and rescued orang-utan since the pioneering work of Dr Galdikas in the 1970s. This is possibly the most rewarding of the world’s four sanctuaries as the rehabilitated orang-utan you see are wild and free to roam the 4,000 square kilometre park.

Accommodation

Although there is a comfortable ecolodge on the river bank at the edge of the park, there is also the option of sleeping on the deck of your boat under a mosquito net, at one with the sights and sounds of the jungle.
