Kalimantan Explorer

Offering a taste of nature and adventure, this journey on wild Kalimantan Island is a great addition to any Indonesia tour.  Travelling by water you’ll have access to areas of central and southern Kalimantan that are inaccessible by road.

Covered in triple-canopy rainforest, Kalimantan sits on the Indonesian portion of the island of Borneo. Because of its location, Kalimantan is off the beaten path, and as such offers a wealth of experiences, peoples, and wildlife. Among the inhabitants of Kalimantan are the Dayak peoples, some 200 tribes who are known for their survival skills and headhunting traditions. Within the park’s confines are a wide range of wildlife, including orangutans, sun bears, macaques, and birds.
