After breakfast fly to Semarang in Central Java, the entry point for Borneo touring. A night stay in Semarang is required due to flight schedules. Arriving Semarang, assisted transfer to Ciputra Hotel in Semarang City, the best available in the city. Enjoy some afternoon sightseeing of Semarang.  Semarang, an ancient city, dates to the Ninth Century, when it was known as Bergota. Six hundred years later a Javanese Islamic missionary from nearby Sultanate of Demak founded a village here. In 1547, the current city was  born. As a result of its large ethnically Chinese population, the city boasts several Chinese temples. These include Sam Po Kong (Gedung Batu), built in honor of the Chinese Great Admiral Zheng He who visited the area in 1405, and Tay Kak Sie Temple. Lunch at a local restaurant gives you a chance to taste some Indonesian specialties. Depending on the group we may visit just one temple and spend the afternoon relaxing or checking out the local shopping mall.

Enjoy the extensive breakfast buffet  at your hotel and then transfer to the airport for your early afternoon flight to Pangkalan Bun in central Kalimantan (Borneo). Transfer to the river port to board your klotok (a traditional motorized wooden boat) to cross Kumai Bay toward the main waterway into Tanjung Puting National Park, the Sekonyer River. The two-hour float up the Sekonyer passes incredible riverside plant life. The vegetation varies from nipah palms and mangroves, dominating the coastal forest, to the evergreen plants that proliferate in the peat swamps and dry land forest. Tanjung Puting National Park covers more than 1,600 square miles and hosts a diverse population of flora and fauna – most notably, the orangutan. Search for proboscis monkeys and the many birds of the area, as you travel upstream. The National Park is in a continuous battle against loggers, gold miners, poachers, and corporate palm oil developers. Tourism in this area offers an economic rationale for preserving the natural habitat. After a stop at Tanjung Harapan to arrange the permits, then it’s straight to Rimba Lodge for two nights. The 35-room lodge, built of ironwood and set on stilts, is quite simple but beautifully-sited - and really the only accommodation in this area.  A group of long-tailed macaques lives all around the rooms, so be sure to close your door!

Afterwards, set off by boat for Camp Leakey, the historic research station in Tanjung Puting National Park. Louis Leakey set up this research station in 1971. He was both teacher and mentor for three young primatologists who would then go on to international renown: Jane Goodall and Dian Fossey, who gained fame for their work with chimpanzees and gorillas in Africa, and Birute Galdikas, who studied orangutans at Camp Leakey and authored the book Reflections of Eden (1995) about her early studies in this area.  Enjoy a beautiful 2½-hour upstream float with bird- and primate-spotting opportunities along the way. Lunch is served onboard the boat before you reach Camp Leakey.  Once you arrive, hike into the primary forest and stop at the visitor center where you may come very close to semi-wild orangutans. At the afternoon orangutan feeding, usually starting around 2:30, you'll spot the orangutans as they approach from above or behind you and then watch their mealtime and gymnastics for as long as they stay.  This is a great opportunity to take close-up photographs of the animals. Orangutans are often quite curious about human beings, and they may want to investigate your pockets and your belongings. Keep a safe distance of at least 15 feet, and follow the guide’s instructions carefully. Return to the boat to ride back to the lodge for the evening.
