Want to hire a klotok boat to Tanjung Puting to see the orangutans (and other wildlife) and travel the Sekonyer River?

The following information is meant those planning an independent trip to Tanjung Puting National Park in the forthcoming high season—and for those who want to enjoy some photographs of the area. I will save the amazing journey and the orangutans, of course, for a later post.

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.

Explore the backroads of Borneo and get off the beaten path with Kalimantan/Borneo’s only Woman-Owned Tour Company!

Tanjung Puting National Park and a klotok boat tour to see the 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 it is a fascinating place to visit, with lots of cultural diversity.

I am happy to arrange other activities and local tours for you, in addition to a Tanjung Puting orangutan tour and Tanjung Puting National Park wildlife viewing. Please let me know your dates and what you are interested in, and we can take it from there!

Thank you for visiting. I look forward to seeing you in Kalimantan (Borneo), Indonesia!

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.
Taking a tour with us also means being able to email us for any questions you may have, or anything you wish to discuss to prepare yourselves for your tour. We try to respond to all emails within 24 hours on working days, and also respond to important emails at the weekends too.
