The heritage of the Indonesian piece of Borneo Island, Tanjung Putting Nature Reserve which has nearly the size of Bali island, is an endless forest canopy along the Sekonyer River. The river infrastructure system is the only back road to cruise in the National Park for exploration of the jungle wildlife. Tanjung Putting Park has several ecosystems as the lowland tropical rain forest, and the dryland forest, as a tourist heaven for nature lovers who can easily cruise by Klotok boats to experience a soft adventure family ecotour into the orangutans habitat of Indonesian Kalimantan Island. The Park of Tanjung Puting host plenty of wildlife primates that can be seen during your journey from your Klotok houseboat when it sails along the jungle river banks in the heart of the dark Borneo rain forest. You can count on seeing proboscis monkeys, and troops of light brown monkeys which jump from tree to tree or even in-to the river in front of your Klotok boat comfortable cruise accommodation. The macaques, gibbons, clouded leopards, sambar deer and orangutans are synonymous with Tanjung Puting National Park itself, since founder of Orangutan Foundation International, Dr Birute Galdikas opened Camp Leakey as the first Orangutan Rehabilitation on this planet.
