Indonesia Expedition: Orangutans of Kalimantan

From £1725 for 11 days
Trip Overview
Go in search of the gentle giants of the Borneo jungles – the elusive orangutan – on an 11-day small-group expedition. Kalimantan, the Indonesian portion of Borneo, is teeming with jungles to explore, cultures to learn, and welcoming people to have a laugh with – and your wildlife expedition will be so much more than that. Staying in comfortable eco-lodging and traditional longhouses in the heart of the jungle, go out for daily safaris and learn about how the local communities’ conservation efforts have ensured that these creatures, along with other endemic wildlife, continue to thrive in this slice of jungle paradise. Share in the wonder of an untouched Borneo before others find out about it, with a unique opportunity to spot orangutans in their natural habitat.
