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.

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.

Day 11:UBUD – BEDUGUL – TANAH LOT TOUR       ▼

Desayuno en el hotel y a la hora designada nuestro guía os recogerá para explorar la isla de Bali en un día completísimo. El primer sitio es Pura Taman Ayun fundada en el siglo XVII. Se encuentra en el pueblo de Mengwi que hasta 1891 fue la sede de una poderosa dinastía Gelgel y que está circundando por un foso que parece un santuario ajardinado, lo que explica el término taman o jardín.

 

De Taman Ayun, la brújula se dirige hacia Jatiluwih, donde sin menor duda admiraremos y gozaremos una hermosa vista de terrazas arrozales que abarcan todo el paisaje de Bali Meridional. El nombre de Jatiluwih está compuesto por dos palabras, Jati que significa realmente y Luwih que significa bello, bueno, especial.Sin menor duda, este lugar no solamente tiene un nombre hermoso sino que realmente lo es.

 

La siguiente parada será Bedugul donde visitaremos el Templo Ulun Danu Bratan, el famoso templo que se levanta en un pequeño promotorio situado en la orrila de Lago de Beratan y posee el hermoso paisaje con el lago y la montaña como telón de fondo. Es sin lugar a duda, uno de los templos más fotogénicos de todo Indonesia. Este templo está dedicado a Dewi Danu, diosa de aguas.

 

Cerraremos la visita en esta ruta fantástica y acabaremos el día viendo la puesta de sol en el templo más famoso y fotografiado de Bali, el Pura Tanah Lot. Desgajados de la tierra sobre un pedestal de piedra esculpido por las mareas entrantes, las solitarias torres negras del Tanah Lot y los penachos de follaje derramados por los precipicios recuerdan la delicadeza de la pintura china. El Pura Tanah Lot o el Templo de Tierra en Medio del Mar fue construido en el siglo XVI. Seguidamente regresamos hotel.
