DAY 1:WEL-COME2INDONESIA!       ▼

Welcome to the largest archipelago in the world. After arriving in Soekarno International Airport, Jakarta (capital city of Indonesia), you will directly go to the hotel. Enjoy a good rest before your trip which will start directly on the next day. The hotel’s driver will wait you at exit gate of your terminal arrival. They bring a name board with your name stated on it and will escort you to the hotel.

Meals:

Accommodation: FM7 Resort Hotel – Superior Room

DAY 2:JAKARTA – PANGKALAN BUN – KUMAI – TANJUNG HARAPAN       ▼

After breakfast, at the appointed time the hotel’s driver will take you to the airport to catch your flight to Pangkalan Bun, Borneo. Upon arrival in Pangkalan Bun, your guide will transfer you to the port of Kumai in about 15-20 minutes by car where you will board our traditional wooden boat called a klotok. Once everything is ready, the cruise upstream starts on the famous Sekonyer river abroad the klotok.

If your flight arrives early (before 12 PM), we can arrive on time at the Tanjung Harapan rehabilitation centre. There at 3 in the afternoon, the orangutans are fed by the rangers of the national park and you can have the first close encounters with them. The literal translation of Tanjung Harapan is Cape of Hope. This first camp has more wetlands and therefore has more mosquitoes in the afternoon. Make sure you put on enough mosquito repellent. After visiting this camp, you will continue your journey upriver resting on the boat while observing animals in the sides of Sekonyer River.

In the afternoon it is very common to see groups of proboscis monkey and macaques in the treetops, jumping from one tree branch to another. Also, see if you can find crocodiles or lizards in the shallow waters on the sides of the river. Prepare for the sunset and enjoy the exquisite food prepared by our jungle crew. The boat is moored on the side of the river to spend the night.

Optional: Tonight, we can take a walk through the jungle to look for nocturnal animals such as snakes and tarantulas. If we are lucky, we can find luminescent mushrooms or tarsier monkeys as well.

Meals: Breakfast – Lunch – Dinner

AccommodationKlotok

DAY 3:PONDOK TANGGUY – CAMP LEAKEY       ▼

Today you will wake up with the sounds and the colours of the jungle. Without a doubt, you will never forget how you woke up on the river, surrounded by the overflowing nature.

Pondok Tangguy

After an extraordinary breakfast on board, we will arrive on time to visit Pondok Tangguy camp at the feeding time for animals (9AM).

Little by little, you will see how the treetops begin to move and then you will see the silhouettes of the orangutans gradually reaching the feeding platform. Tangguy was a release camp for young orangutans that had been rehabilitated. It prevented them from moving away due to lack of food and ending up outside the national park, with the following risks of falling into traps of settlers or palm oil plantations. After the orangutans begin to leave the camp, you will return to the klotok to continue further upstream. You will witness how the colour of the river changes and you will have the opportunity to see crocodiles and large monitor lizards, along with Gibbons and proboscis monkeys. Of course, you will enjoy your lunch in this lovely setting.

Camp Leakey

You will arrive at Camp Leakey, the old orangutan rehabilitation centre. It was founded in 1971, when a student from UCLA University in Los Angeles named Birutte Galdikas, began studying the orangutans there. The name Camp Leakey came from Birutte’s own professor, paleo-anthropologist Louis Leakey. At least 200 orangutans have already been cured and returned to the jungle thanks to this centre. However, since 1995 the Indonesian government banned the introduction of more orangutans in this camp, so the orangutans are increasingly adapting to freedom. Today, this camp is used for behavioural and feeding research for orangutans. You can also visit the small museum built by the scientist Dr. Birutte Galdikas.

After finishing the observing of orangutans in this camp, we will do a gentle trekking through the jungle back to the boat to search for free orangutans and other animals, if the weather conditions permit. We will have the opportunity to learn a lot about the jungle from our local guides, of which some of them were born in the jungle. They’ll explain how to look for animals or plants, and you can listen to their experience of life in the jungle. The jungles of Borneo have given life and shelter to its inhabitants for million of years. They are jungles that under the watch of their ancestors are capable of fulfilling every single individual’s needs. Food, water, medicines, etc. But never throw anything in your mouth without your guide’s recommendation.

In the afternoon if it does not rain, the boat will be docked near a swarm of fireflies and you can enjoy the show of its luminescence.

Meals: Breakfast – Lunch – Dinner  

AccommodationKlotok

DAY 4:BULUH KECIL RIVER – KUMAI       ▼

Today is the last day of your stay at the klotok. At 5.00 in the morning, we will pick you up at the klotok, and we will sail for approximately 1 hour and a half by speedboat, leaving the open sea and entering a calm river, less visited by most tourists. 

Buluh Kecil River

During the upstream journey that you will start in complete darkness, you will see how the night gives way to a unique sunrise in the jungle of Borneo. Once we enter the crowd-less river, our search for the great variety of birds that inhabit this river and the rest of the animals begins with the help of the technical files that your guide will take with you. The silence is only broken by the sound of the branches and the singing of the birds. Nature is so powerful that there are even parts of the river that the vegetation tries to close. A journey without a doubt, to keep in your retinas.

Formerly there was a feeding time here at 07.00 am on a platform on the river, moment that we observed from our boats. But the feeding has changed to 14.00, time at which it is no longer possible to be in that part of the jungle due to natural conditions.

Ranger House

Due to its proximity to the houses of the rangers, orangutans tend to be around the area. So our objective is to look for their trail, learning to distinguish an old nest from a newly made nest. Thus finding out if they are nearby or not, differentiating the sounds of the branches or their own sounds. An authentic search for wildlife! We CANNOT guarantee that you will see them. But if you do, it will be one of the most rewarding experiences you get from Borneo.

Besides orangutans, proboscis monkeys, kalaos birds, macaques, crocodiles and monitor lizards also live in this jungle. Then we can visit the house of the rangers who permanently live there to protect the area and have a tea or coffee with them, while listening to the morning sounds of the jungle. An unforgettable place.

Back to Kumai

Again in boats, we go down the river to take you to the port and you can rest in the hotel. Your guide will have already ordered your bags. Then we will visit the Arut river to see the life of the locals around it. A place where they also make wooden boats like Klotoks Boats and you will also visit the Mendawai village. Afternoon free, to visit the town on your own.

Taman Ayun Temple

The first site will be the Taman Ayun Temple (it was founded in the 17th century), located in the Mengwi Village. Until 1891, it was the seat of a powerful man who dates back to the Gelgel Dynasty, which is surrounded by a moat that looks like a sanctuary landscaped, which explains the term taman, or garden. The temple is a penyawangan or place to worship other sacred sites.

Jatiluwih Rice Terrace

From Taman Ayun, the compass heads towards Jatiluwih, where without a doubt we will admire and enjoy a beautiful view of rice terraces that cover the entire landscape of South Bali. The name of Jatiluwih is made up of two words, Jati which means truly and Luwih which means beautiful, good, special. Without a doubt, this place not only has a beautiful name but that beauty is really reflected in its landscape.

Ulun Danu Bratan Temple

Sunset at Tanah Lot

We will close the visit on this fantastic route and end the day watching the sunset at the most famous and photographed temple in Bali, the Pura Tanah Lot. Torn from the ground on a stone pedestal sculpted by the incoming tides, the lonely black towers of the Tanah Lot and the plumes of foliage shed by the cliffs recall the delicacy of Chinese painting.
