A sanctuary for orangutans and Borneo's wildlife

Tanjung Puting is a place where educational experiences, river cruises, and the call of the wild combine to create a memorable journey into the heart of nature and wildlife conservation.

Tanjung Puting National Park on the island of Borneo in Indonesia takes you deep into the heart of a lush rainforest, where you can witness orangutans and a diverse array of wildlife in their natural habitat. This national park is an ecological treasure that beckons nature enthusiasts and wildlife conservationists.

Tanjung Puting is renowned for its thriving population of orangutans, offering a unique opportunity to observe these magnificent creatures up close. The rehabilitation centres within the park, like Camp Leakey, provide an educational experience where you can witness orangutans in their natural environment and learn about the conservation efforts to protect them.

Beyond orangutans, Tanjung Puting boasts an incredible variety of wildlife. Proboscis monkeys, gibbons, macaques, and pythons are among the many species that call this rainforest home. Cruising along the Sekonyer River, you're likely to spot crocodiles basking in the sun and colourful bird species soaring overhead.

Exploring Tanjung Puting often involves river journeys on traditional klotok houseboats. These boat trips offer an intimate experience with the park's wildlife and landscapes. Staying on a klotok allows you to immerse yourself in the sounds and sights of the rainforest while spending your nights amid the tranquil river surroundings.

Tanjung Puting National Park isn't just a sanctuary for wildlife; it's also a centre for research and conservation. Visitors can learn about the importance of preserving Borneo's ecosystems and the efforts to protect endangered species.

Tanjung Puting National Park is an exceptional destination that allows you to experience the captivating biodiversity of Borneo's rainforests. Tanjung Puting is a living testament to the importance of preserving these remarkable ecosystems for future generations to appreciate.
