Orang hutans (literal translation: forest people; in English, orangutan) are the most famous residents on Kalimantan, Indonesia’s rainforest island, but they are by no means the only spectacular natural wonder on the island. No matter how spectacular a visit to see them is, there’s more to Kalimantan than just Orangutans, including sun bears, macaques, crocodiles and more!
Tanjung Puting National Park, located in southwest Kalimantan, is known for its wildlife and orangutan conservation. It is a beautiful place to explore by foot, car and boat, with boat tours by far being the most popular method of travel. You will float along the river while listening to the sounds of the forest and wildlife around you.
What’s more, by traveling with Bali Wildlife Tour, you will be directly contributing to reforestation and conservation efforts. FNPF has a plot of land of about 100 hectares that acts as a buffer zone between the national park and the surrounding palm oil plantations. On your tour, you will be able to visit, learn about and even, if you wish, participate in FNPF’s environmental work. We will introduce you to experts in their fields, from veterinarians to research scientists, so you have a better understanding of the ecology of a tropical rainforest, and you will also have the opportunity to experience local life and see how so many people rely on sustainably using the national park’s natural resources for their livelihoods.
