Borneo

Borneo offers an amazing mix of wildlife and culture. A key destination for us is Tanjung Puting National Park located in the southeast part of West Kotawaringin Regency in the Indonesian province of Central Kalimantan. The park comprises of several habitats including lowland tropical forest, dry-land forest, peat swamp forest, mangrove forest and coastal forest. This terrain is punctuated by black water rivers, which carry visitors through the reserve in traditional live-aboard riverboats. Days are typically spent lounging on deck surveying the jungle with binoculars in one hand and a drink in the other as the boat chugs along the river. Although the park’s orangutans are the star attraction, other commonly sighted species include sun bears, clouded leopards, civets, crocodiles, 9 species of primates and over 230 species of bird. The park boasts the largest wild orangutan population in the world, it is little surprise that Tanjung Putting is fast becoming the most popular tourist destination in Kalimantan.
