The steamy rainforests of Indonesian Borneo, or Kalimantan, some of the oldest in the world, provides a natural habitat for the majestic orangutan and other remarkable wildlife.
All the holiday ideas here feature the Indonesian part of Borneo known locally as Kalimantan. A short visit to Kalimantan works well with a holiday in the neighbouring island of Java as the diverse nature, and remarkable sights of the two destinations make an excellent contrast. For an intrepid traveller, we can arrange an adventure to explore the heart of Kalimantan.
The most accessible of Kalimantan’s national parks is Tanjung Puting, famous for orangutan conservation and centred around Camp Leakey research centre. Rimba Lodge in the forest offers land-based accommodation from which to explore the park or, onboard a private, liveaboard “klotok” boat on the river. Enjoying the view from the deck, you’ll sail upstream, spotting the great ape itself as well as macaques, crocodiles, rare butterflies and birds.
It all amounts to an extraordinary privilege for a traveller. Contact us today to start your next adventure.
