Orangutan Kalimantan Wildlife Tour

Orangutan Kalimantan wildlife tour is the most two thumbs up holiday. Seeing closely of wildlife in Kalimantan, river tour and meet with Orangutan. Did you know what Orangutan is?. If you ever read a book written by Birute Galdikas. It was explained regarding her years with the great apes of Kalimantan. It is a very impressive achievement. Hence I thank her since 1971 that she has been doing great work for Orangutan. Actually there are three angels (The Trimates) in this world. It is a name given to three women. They are Jane Goodall, Dian Fossey, and Birutė Galdikas. The Trimates called Leakey's Angels. So, Orangutan Kalimantan wildlife tour will bring you back to the past time. Where she has begun her journey with orangutan Kalimantan. Especially you will visit Camp Leakey. Here you can see her house in the jungle, kitchen and where she uses for studying these primates.

Orangutan is found on the island of Kalimantan and Sumatra. They are different in appearance. The differences between Sumatra and Kalimantan Orangutan are the face shape. Male Sumatran Orangutan is likewise an old man. Whilst Orangutan Kalimantan is growing cheek pads. In-person I have seen them in the wild. It is true that Orangutan is unique among land animals. And also these great apes are remarkable people. So, the Orangutan Kalimantan wildlife tour is a trip program for Kalimantan Mammals. Although in my topics that I mentioned Sumatran mammals too. Because it is only two home sweet home for Orangutan, Sumatra and Kalimantan islands.

Orangutan Kalimantan wildlife tour started & finish in Pangkalanbun airport. Three days trip itinerary is more than enough. It does not make any sense for more than three days unless you have special interest. Because you will visit three camps in the Tanjung Puting national park. First one Tanjung Harapan, Pondok Tangguy and the last camp as well as the oldest one, Camp Leakey. In addition, visiting the Pesalat reforestation camp. Here you can learn any kind of tree. This project supported by Friends of National Park Foundation (FNPF Foundation). At least no last, by taking the Orangutan Kalimantan wildlife tour, you already supported the wildlife in Tanjung Puting. See you on the spots.
