An Orangutan Experience in Tanjung Putting, Indonesia

When I received the schedule for my trip to Indonesia one of the first places it said we would visit was Tanjung Putting, which was on the island of Kalimantan. I had never heard of these places before but knew we were going to see wild Orangutans and was excited to visit. Once in Indonesia I heard a couple people say “Borneo”. Previous to this I wasn’t sure where I thought Borneo was and I kind of thought it was its own country and then I found...

Lesson Learned from the Klotok - Travel Makes Us Humble

Have you ever felt that travel makes you humble? As a part of #Travel2Indonesia trip, I spent the first two days in Borneo jungle (Kalimantan). We slept, ate, worked on the klotok – wooden boat, and the weather was scorching hot and humid. You can imagine how dirty and sweaty we all were.Because the orangutan camp can be visited only by a river-boat, we had to maintain our lives on the boat. I loved the experience. The simple life - it's not easy to get...

The orangutan family of Kalimantan

For the first seven or eight years of his life, Fred Galdikas had a best friend called Apollo Bob. Like most friends at that age, they would play together outside. And like most children at that age, their differences seemed immaterial. Kids have an ability to look beyond race, religion, or language and just see a friend for who they are. That was probably lucky for Fred. You see, Apollo Bob was an orangutan. Thirty years ago, when Fred was born, his mother was...

High on Nature

Strap on your boots to explore the natural wonders of Java’s Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park. After a 3am wake-up call, we’re greeted by the fresh pre-dawn breeze and the spectacular panorama of Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park. Even the half hour shivering in the dark waiting for the beautiful sunrise over Mount Bromo is worth the excitement. It’s a two-hour drive from Malang before another 30-minute jeep ride to reach the scenic lookout...

The Rewarding Descent of Rinjani : Segara Anak

The final hike to the summit was desperately hard. The trail became loose gravel, rising at a steep angle, and the effects of the high altitude soon became apparent as I gasped for breath. Dawn was already starting to touch the sand and rocks while i was struggling climbing the almost vertical sand hill. With giving all my strength, i finally manage to stand on top of the ground of Anjani goddess. It has the most beautiful views of Rinjani. On the west side, you...
