Gorontalo - Togian Islands (8D7N)

The Beautiful Birdlife of Togian

Gorontalo - Togian Islands

Day 1

Around 1pm, you will be met at the airport and transferred to Gorontalo Harbour where our beautiful boat, the Katharina will be waiting. En route, we will visit the Portuguese-built Fort Otanaha, from where we will have a stunning view of the vast Limboto Lake and parts of the city of Gorontalo. With any luck there will be some Black Eagles and Black Kites flying around, while Yellow-billed Malkohas and Crimson-crowned Flowerpeckers may be hopping in the trees. After embarking the Katharina in the late afternoon we will depart straight away for Pulau Togian (Pulau is the Indonesian word for island), the centre of the Togian Archipelago. We will cruise overnight to our destination.


Day 2

From early morning we will go trekking and bird-watching near Tobil village on the north side of Pulau Togian. Late morning we may visit the nearby lake, Danau Mariona, to snorkel with thousands of multi-hued stingless jellyfish, it still remains a mystery as to how this lake was formed, yet it is a fascinating experience. If time allows we can also try some snorkelling from the stunning Karina Beach, just next to the Jellyfish Lake. In the afternoon we can do another bird watching walk on the small island Batongo, in front of Pulau Togian. In the evening we will sail to the north-west side of Pulau Batudaka.

Day 3

In the morning we can enjoy an easy trek within the surroundings of Tumbulawa village on Pulau Batudaka, where we can expect to see quite a variety of birds. In the afternoon there will be the opportunity for some more bird watching in the area, but those who prefer to go snorkelling can do so at the beautiful Tumbulawa Reef, which is nearby. In the evening we will cross to Pulau Una Una.

Day 4

Setting out at dawn on Pulau Una Una, we will start climbing Gunung Colo volcano (highest point Sakora Peak 507m, southwest crater 235m), and encounter two small lakes – one with fresh cold water and the other with boiling hot water surrounded by lots of geothermal activity. On the way we will spot a variety of Indonesian birds. In the afternoon we can visit a very nice snorkelling spot on the north-west side of Pulau Una Una. But those who prefer to go bird watching are of course free to take another walk in the jungle. In the evening we will cross over to Pulau Malenge.

Day 5

We will set out at dawn for a long bird watching excursion on Pulau Malenge. We will start our walk from the north side of the island, and end up at Tanjung Malenge on the south side. If time allows we can visit the small Bajau village built on nearby Pulau Papan, and walk to Pulau Malenge along a wooden bridge hundreds of metres long. In the afternoon we will take the dinghies to go snorkelling at the famous California Reef, north of Pulau Malenge. Another short jungle walk on the north side of the island is also a possibility. In the evening we will cruise to Pulau Talatakoh.

Day 6

Early morning will find us bird watching and trekking near the village of Kalia on the east side of Pulau Talatakoh. At the end of the morning we can, if time allows, visit the big sea gypsy village of Kabalutan in the middle of the sea on the south side of the island. These are the Bajau people who build their homes on stilts over the sea. In Kabalutan we will get a glimpse of how the formerly nomadic Bajau have adapted to life in a static village. In the afternoon we can go snorkelling at another part of the California Reef, this time at the north side of Pulau Waleakodi. Those who prefer another birding session can do so on this island.


Day 7

Early morning we will be bird watching and trekking on the north side of Pulau Togian. We will probably start in the village of Baulu and walk to the village of Matobiai or Kaputat. In the afternoon we will have a last snorkelling opportunity at the very best spot of the California Reef on the north-west side of Pulau Malenge. In the evening we will have our farewell party with the crew of the Katharina at the beach or on board. During the night we will cruise to our final destination: the harbour of Gorontalo.


Day 8

After breakfast we will bid farewell to the crew and the Katharina – our beautiful sea-based home for the last 8 days. We will take the tenders ashore and you will be transferred to Gorontalo Airport for your return flights to Bali, Jakarta or beyond.
