Tanjung Puting Klotok Boat Tour

 Tanjung Puting National Park is geographically located between 2035'-3020 'South latitude and 111 050' - 112 015 'east longitude. This area is located on a headland on the south coast of Borneo, north-west of Central Kalimantan Province, covers the District of Kumai in West Kotawaringin and Pembuang Hulu districts, District Sembuluh Seruyan Hilir district. This area is limited by some conversion areas, creeks Kumai in the North, Seruyan River on the east and the Coast of Java Sea in the south and west.

This is the web site for Siti’s Tanjung Puting orangutan tours, Tanjung Puting klotok boat tours on the Sekonyer River in Kalimantan (Borneo), Indonesia, and Pangkalan Bun/Kumai-area eco tours and cultural heritage tours. I specialize in customized tours of Tanjung Puting National Park and the Kumai area.

We offer customisable private tours, where you a looked after from the time you are met by your guide (a local guide from Kumai with basic English), until the time your tour finishes at a hotel in Pangkalan Bun or at the airport.
Your guide would allow you to have peaceful couple, or family time, alone on the top deck of your klotok, while travelling around the park, only interrupting you to point out any interesting wildlife, or to inform you that it’s meal time, or that it’s time to  go on land. He or she would accompany you through the forest, on trails to and from feeding statations, and on short night time walks too if you wished. Your tour would include transfers and everything you need (see FAQs regarding exactly what it does/doesn’t include).
Food would be three meals a day plus snacks and soft drinks (mainly cartons of sweetened juices, water, and tea/coffee). As often as possible, (depending on local availability), oil used for cooking on our tours is Corn oil. Athough it’s 5 times the price of Palm oil, we don’t believe it’s right to use Palm oil due to it devastating orangutan habitats.

TANJUNG PUTING ORANGUTAN TOUR AND KLOTOK HOUSEBOAT TOURS

Tanjung Puting National Park is one of the natural wonders of the world and a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. Orangutans are the main reason to visit this part of Kalimantan, on the Indonesian side of Borneo. Wild orangutans only live in Sumatra and Borneo, and is Kalimantan is one of the last places in the world to see orangutans in the wild. Unfortunately the orangutan habitat is rapidly disappearing due to deforestation from palm oil plantations and mining. There is also plenty of other wildlife, as Tanjung Puting is a mega biodiversity hotspot.

Tanjung Puting National Park and a klotok boat tour to see orangutans is usually the highlight of most visitor’s trip to Kalimantan (Borneo)—but there is even more to Kumai and Pangkalan Bun, Kalimantan, Borneo! Stay a little longer, take another Tanjung Puting eco tour, get to know the local culture, enjoy the hospitality of a village homestay, take a cooking class, explore the turtle sanctuary, and savor unspoiled, pristine beaches. Kumai is home to several ethnic groups, Malay, Dayak, and Madurese (originally from East Java), and is a fascinating place to visit, with lots of cultural diversity. Please see our Other Tours section for other Tanjung Puting eco tours and cultural heritage tours, and homestays.
