Things to do

Wildlife viewing
Orangutans viewing
Star gazing
Interact with locals




We did the two night three day river house boat trip. This was definitely enough time to visit all three camps and see a local village. Along the river you will also see many monkeys. The camp stops where they have feeding stations allow you to have a close up view of the wild and rehabilitated Orangutans. Highly recommended national park.

Stunning jungles, lots of wildlife and we were blessed with good weather too. Pack the mosquito repellant and lots of it. Plenty of Orangutan feeding stations for the opportunity to spot some wild orangutans. Camp Leakey was fascinating. This place blew our minds!

Orangutan is a solitaire species that when you'd feel so happy to find them jump from one tree to another while walking in the middle of rain forest. Come and explore Borneo. They will give you a unique experience. While hundreds of people came to Camp Leakey (it was long weekend), we were using another track to reach feeding station. And in the middle of walking, we met several orangutan... it was a very pleasant yet breathtaking experience!
