Itinerary

Day 1

We will meet up at Iskandar airport in the morning, and from there we will head to the area of Kumai. Once there, we will set off on our klotok, a traditional wooden Indonesian boat that will act as our floating house during the three-day cruise through Borneo.

We drift down the Sekonyer river until reaching the Tanjung Harapan rehabilitation center for Orangutans. Our journey there will take us through the wildest side of Borneo where you will see animals such as the proboscis monkey, Macaques, and exotic birds.

At the Tanjung Harapan reserve, you will see the orangutans in the middle of the jungle wilderness. Respecting their space, you'll see just how loving and affectionate they really are.

After, we will return to the Klotok to enjoy the sunset over the river Sekonyer. Finally, we will end our intense day with a delicious candlelight meal as we are gently pulled along by the currents of the river while hearing the sounds of the jungle wildlife that surrounds us.

Day 2

After waking to the break of dawn and the first sounds of the stirring jungle animals, we will have filling breakfast before we head to the camp at Pondok Tanggui. There you will have a fun time watching the affectionate orangutans of all ages and sizes.

Later, we will climb back aboard our klotok and head to the Leakey camp. During the two-hour journey, you will have time to relax, admire the surrounding nature and enjoy a delicious meal on board.

When you arrive at Camp Leakey, you can choose between enjoying a hiking route through the Indonesian jungle or visiting the information center. Later, we will head to the Nipa Palm area, also known as the house of Fireflies. In this enclosure, we will admire these incredible insects that endow the area with a magical and spectacular aura.

Finally, we will have dinner on board our floating house and then have a good night’s rest following an intense day.

Day 3

We will have breakfast on board the boat and then we will travel along the river to Kumaiand. Here, we'll climb onto an air-conditioned vehicle that will take us to the airport of Pangkalan Ban for about 9:30 sm, when we'll say goodbye following three magnificent days of the cruise.

4 day cruise

With this option, you can extend your experience in Borneo. We will visit more thrilling places such as a center of reforestation, where you can plant some trees to help preserve the environment and learn about some of the curative properties of the native flora. We will also visit a small local village where we can enjoy the customs and traditions of the people and you will have your own free time to explore the local culture.

 5 day cruise

If you choose this option, besides enjoying everything that has already been mentioned, you will enjoy free time to relax on the paradise beach of Tanjung Keluang. We will also visit a turtle sanctuary in this zone, where if you are lucky, you will see the baby turtles on the seashore.

As the sun sets, we will do a nighttime hike through the Borneo jungle. There you will see animals that cannot be seen during the day and you will enjoy the special ambience of the evening in the wilderness.

Accommodation

The accommodation on the tour through Borneo will be a traditional klotok. This boat, some 50 feet in length, is equipped with mattresses, cushions, mosquito net, a kitchen and a bathroom.

During the tour, you will be attended by a professional crew, composed of a captain, a chef, and an English-speaking guide.
