Day 1: Pangkalanbun, Tanjung Puting [125 miles – 3 hours]
Upon arrival at Pangkalan Bun Airport you’ll be met by our local guide who will drive you to the pier and assist you on the boat transfer to Kumai. The boat is a traditional Klotok wooden river-boat, about 33-foot by 6.5-foot with a roof which forms the upper deck from where you can view the rain forest as it glides by. The guide's team includes the boatman, a cook and an expert guide. Lunch is served on the way to Tanjung Puting. Enjoy the cruise up the peaceful jungle for about two hours while slowly exploring the quiet river, observing the proboscis monkeys alongside the river or, if you’re lucky, some orangutans lying down on their nest or hunting for food and flying from one tree to another. You are in one of the most privileged places in the world to live this kind of experience. Arrive at the lodge for dinner and accommodation. Or you may opt have accommodations on the boat instead. [L/D]
Day 2: Tanjung Puting (Orangutan Exploration at Camp Leaky) [6 miles]
Breakfast at the lodge. Half day trekking exploring the orangutans and arriving at Natai Lengkuas, a research center for Proboscis monkey’s, in time for the feeding at 11:30 am.

The camp was established in 1971 to support research activities in Tanjung Puting Wildlife Reserve. Now this area also functions as orangutans’ rehabilitation center. Over the years, the camp has served the research efforts of several scientists and students. Tourist will be able to walk on certain trails of the trail system without disturbing the research activities. Here you will also be able to watch the feeding of the monkeys around 2.00 pm.
