|Day 1: Pangkalan Bun to Tanjung Puting
Your guide will collect you at the airport and drive you to the harbour, via the compulsory stops at the Pangkalan Bun police station and the park ranger’s office in Kumai (see map above). Then you will begin your tour on your private boat, known locally as a klotok.
|Days 2-?: Tanjung Puting National Park
You will visit the Camp Leakey Orangutan Rehabilitation Center run by Canadian Birute Mary Galdikas, an orangutan feeding session and the many other places of interest in the national park. However, your highlight might be seeing the animals that congregate near the rivers as you travel along.
|Last Day: Tanjung Puting to Pangkalan Bun Airport
You will return to the harbour at Kumai where a waiting car will bring you to Pangkalan Bun Airport to catch your flight.
Are you planning a trip to Pangkalan Bun? Here are three steps to assist:
June to October are the drier months normally, while January to March is the time to see the many native orchids. (The link above also has the current conditions and a 3-day weather forecast.) However tours operate all year and there are no requirements for physical fitness, etc; it is family friendly.
There are direct daily flights from Jakarta, Surabaya, Semarang, Pontianak and Banjarmasin; check the schedule. On Sundays and Wednesdays, there are also direct flights from Solo (near Yogyakarta). You can connect to these flights from other cities, including Bali (Denpasar), Balikpapan, Lombok, Makassar, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, often on the same day.
