A unique and once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the very best of Bornean wildlife. From orangutans in the wild, endangered Hawksbill Turtles, relax in Bali and an optional trip to Komodo Island, home to the Komodo Dragon. A true nature lover’s paradise.
Take a boat cruise deep into the Bornean rainforests of the Central Kalimantan province in South Borneo, to a very special place indeed. Camp Leakey is a world famous research and conservation centre and world leaders in saving orangutan populations from extinction in the wild, protect orangutan habitats and rehabilitate and release wild-born ex-captive orangutans back to the wild.
Meet orangutans up close and personal in their natural habitat. This extraordinary trip is a nature lover’s paradise, not only that but your trip directly funds conservation efforts at the camp. Here, we venture further into the rainforest where you can catch a glimpse of wild orangutans in their natural habitat, as well as proboscis monkeys, anteaters, crocodiles, lemurs, porcupines and gibbons.
Following our time in the rainforest, we travel on down the river to the coast where we see the nesting grounds for hawksbill and green turtles. We spend time with the villagers, and conservationists working to safeguard the future of these species in the region. Depending on timing, we may even release baby turtles back into the wild.
For those who like to explore further you can opt to travel to Komodo Island, the land of the Komodo Dragon. We travel back to Bali and then on to these stunning islands for three days. En-route we stop at Flying Fox Island to view literally thousands of fruit bats on their daily exodus from the caves and mangroves for an aerial display that is up there with the best arial displays you could hope to see.
