Borneo Orangutan Adventure Cruise

Cruise to Camp Leakey & Discover the "Faces in the Forest"—Borneo's Endangered Orangutans
From isolated tropical islands to remote national parks, our small-ship voyage along Borneo’s southwest coast showcases exceptional biodiversity and unique wildlife. Lying at the heart of the Malay Archipelago, Borneo harbors the oldest undisturbed tracts of tropical rainforest on earth. Within this tangled green realm we find the world's last remaining orangutans, native only to this island. In the Malay language, orangutan means "person of the forest," and these shaggy Great Apes are as intelligent, charismatic and human-like as their gorilla, chimpanzee and bonobo cousins. At famed Camp Leakey—the orangutan research station that is the centerpiece of our adventure—we witness the rehabilitation of formerly captive orangs as they are returned to a new life in the wild.

Trip Highlights

  • Explore Tanjung Puting and Bako national parks, wildlife meccas that are among Borneo’s greatest natural wonders and home to wild orangutans
  • Interact with orangutans at close range on exclusive visits to two orangutan rehabilitation centers, where the animals are nurtured for reintroduction into the wild
  • Travel with Dr. Biruté Mary Galdikas, the world’s foremost authority on the orangutan, aboard ship and at Camp Leakey
