Tanjung Puting National Park

Feeding platform at the Tanjung Puting National Park in Kalimantan.

 

 

Released orangutans receive supplemental food at designated feeding stations.

Although the rainforest seems like it should be living fruit salad, finding edible plants is often very difficult.

 

 

Many wild and ex-captive orangutans have become habituated to the presence of people.

Camp Leakey has been a center for behavioral study for more than 40 years.

 

 

When Dr. Birute Mary Galdikas established Camp Leakey here in the 1970's the only structure was

a single bark-walled hut, which had to be shared by four people.

The building pictured above is still the home of Dr. Galdikas within theTanjung Puting National Park

 


Sekonyer River

Travel to Camp Leakey requires a multi-hour trip up river by "klotok".

 

 

While traveling the river, it is not uncommon to see proboscis monkeys, long-tailed macaques

and the occasional orangutan hanging out in the trees.

 

 

The only method of travel in the region is by boat.

 


Rimba

Accomodations for the OFI trips are generally at the Rimba Eco Lodge,

of course accessible only by river.

 

 

Rimba Lodge Reception Center.

 

 

All of the lodging at Rimba is on stilts. During the rainy season, the water freely flows under all the buildings.

 

 

Elevated wooden walkways at Rimba make walking through the jungles a simple process.
