“My friend and I booked a 3 day/2 night cruise through Tanjung Puting National Park to visit the orangutan feeding stations. We left from Kumai and spent 3 of the most amazing days of our trip on the river, in the jungle and seeing the monkeys, orangutans and other wildlife in their natural habitat.
Our crew were a sensational group of people and made the trip so much fun. Our tour guide Ari was so knowledgable about the area and knew the orangutans by name. We had one of the best cooks who consistently produced meal after meal of the most amazing fresh food. Sitting on the boat and cruising down the river made us feel like royalty. We were well looked after by the crew and they took great interest in pointing out wildlife along the way and involving us in different aspects of the trip.
I cannot recommend this experience more highly to anyone thinking about a similar trip or experience. A number of reviewers have commented on the congestion of tour boats on the river detracting from their experience. We found the complete opposite. We loved the feeling of community during our trip and interacting with other tourists and crews, and sharing this rich experience with them.
WOW Borneo were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. They were easy to get in touch with and always responded to our questions within hours. If you’re looking for a tour provider, WOW Borneo is a great option.”
