Orangutans, like us humans, are curious creatures. So it's only natural that you'd be curious to see one stem of our ancestral history in their natural habitat with today's unique Escape to the jungles of Borneo.
Choose between a magical four (just $399, usually $1,440) or five-day (just $499, usually $1,800) orangutan tour and cruise with 1stVacation to see our orange furry friends in their natural habitat. Your package also includes all accommodation on the river boat, return transfers to Pangkalan Bun Airport, park entrance fees, permit and ranger donation, plus all meals cooked by a chef as well as mineral water, tea, coffee and snacks provided on the boat.
The tour begins at Kumai in the Tanjung Puting National Park where you will meet your English-speaking tour guide. From there you'll cruise along the Sekoyer River on a traditional wooden riverboat watching the spectacular wildlife frolic in the lush forests and in the nipa palm mangroves lining the riverbeds.
Keep your eyes peeled and have your camera at the ready for the cheeky proboscis monkey or long nose monkey swinging from tree to tree, an array of beautiful birds and sometimes a salt or fresh water crocodile or two lurking in the shallows.
You'll visit the various orangutan rehabilitation and research centres at Camp Leakey, Pondok Tanggui and Tanjung Harapan, where experts have released hundreds of oragutans back into the wild and where you'll have the opportunity to witness these marvelous creatures up close at feeding time.
During the tour you'll also get to explore the tiny villages of Borneo and their unique arts and crafts, have the option of going on a trekking trip with an opportunity to take a small hike during the night to observe nocturnal animals in the forest or a majestic night time cruise down the river to see groups of fireflies.
No matter what you choose along the way, you're sure to go wild with today's Escape to Borneo.
