Great place to experience a rain forest first hand. There is a variety of wildlife that can be seen here as well.

Nice nature reserve. You can only stick to a single path to the feeding area. Hiking paths within the forest have been closed following an incidence of a orangutan attaching a tourist. So you can't really see much. I was here in January which is...More

We rented a car and drove to the nature reserve (approximately 30 minutes from the airport). If you don’t have a car you have to walk up a big hill to get into the nature reserve where the orangutans are—probably a good 30 minute walk...More

Unfortunately we didn’t see any orangutans as it is fruiting season just now. However informative talk and good to hear the numbers of apes are rising.

We were extremely lucky to see an orangutan during the fruit season. Normally they have enough food in the forest at this time of the year (fortunately), but this old lady called Seduku came out and showed herself. Staff is making a tremendous job, they...More

We got a Grab and negotiated with a taxi driver to take us back, but shared with someone who happened to be on our boat.
