Following a delicious breakfast at sunrise, cruise up the river to arrive at Pondok Tangguy. Walk on the wooden platform built by volunteers from around the world to visit the feeding station and to observe Orangutans in their natural habitat. Enjoy freshly cooked lunch as the boat glides through the river to arrive at Camp Leakey located approximately an hour away. Established in 1971 by Dr. Birute Galdikas and Rod Brindamour as the Orangutan Research and Conservation Base, here you can do a short trekking to the feeding station and observe how an Alpha male can be the king amongst all. Spend the rest of the day hiking through the rainforest, exploring peat swamps, lowland dipterocarp habitat, searching for wildlife or enjoying varieties of fungi, orchid, slipper orchid, mosses and ferns.
Keep your eyes open during the boat journey to follow as you will get a chance to see proboscis monkeys roosting on trees by the river and a great variety of endemic birds flying by. In the evening, opt for a night trek in Pondok Ambung Research Station to seek out some nocturnal wildlife, or simply relax on your houseboat as it glides down the main river for a magical spectacle of fireflies gathering between the growing nipa palms on the riverside.
