Camp Leakey adalah area di Tanjung Puting National Park yang paling populer untuk melihat keberadaan orangutan. Jumlah orangutan disini lebih banyak. Setelah kapal klotoknya sandar, masih harus jalan kaki lagi masuk hutan menuju feeding area. Sepanjang jalan pun kita bisa melihat orangutan pada lompat sana sini dari satu pohon ke pohon lainnya.

Hari berikutnya, balik ke Pangkalan Bun dan sampai di pelabuhan langsung dianter ke Bandar Udara Iskandar. Tapi sebelumnya mampir dulu ke toko souvenir Kawal di pusat kota Pangkalan Bun untuk membeli oleh-oleh. Senangnya ikutan open trip ke Tanjung Puting National Park ini. Tidur 2 malem di kapal klotok, makan dan mandi juga di klotok ini. Bertemu dengan orang-orang baru dari banyak negara. Belum lagi aktivitas trekking baik pagi siang dan malam, keluar masuk hutan demi melihat banyak orangutan yang hidup bebas di alam liar. Trip seperti ini recommended banget buat yang suka petualangan 👍.


ABOUT TANJUNG PUTING NATIONAL PARK: Tanjung Puting National Park is a national park in Indonesia located in the southeast part of West Kotawaringin Regency in the Indonesian province of Central Kalimantan (Central Borneo). The nearest main town is the capital of the Regency, Pangkalan Bun. The park is famous for its orangutan conservation. The park was set aside in the 1930s by the Dutch colonial government for the protection of the orangutans and proboscis monkey, and was designated as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 1977 and a national park in 1982.

In addition to orangutans and proboscis monkeys, the park is also home to gibbons, macaques, clouded leopards, sun bears, wild boars, porcupines, and sambar deer. The park also features many reptiles, including crocodiles, monitor lizards, and pythons, birds, including hornbills and kingfishers, and insects, such as the giant Bornean butterfly. The Pondok Ambung Tropical Forest Research Station was established in 2005 for the study of all wild species found in the park. Today Tanjung Puting National Park is a popular ecotourism destination, with many local tour companies offering multi-day boat tours to view wildlife and visit the research centers. The park was home to 105,000 people as of 1997. The park was heavily damaged by fires in 1997 and 1998, and today remains threatened by illegal logging, illegal mining, and forest clearing for agricultural uses. Conservation efforts by Indonesian NGO Friends of the National Parks Foundation is leading towards a slow but progressive reforestation of damaged areas. Their reforestation work has seen the planting of thousands of saplings in the area to recreate habitat for the endemic wildlife in the area.
