Testimony - The Journey story of two parts tour in Palangkaraya and Tanjung puting:

David and I had an amazing time withnOrangutan Travel and have not stopped telling everyone what a great trip it was since we got home. I will be honest in that we were a bit confused upon arrival in Bali about when we were meeting with our group and guide (turns out it was just us!). We knew we were meeting GG at the hotel but did not know what time - once he arrived and cleared everything up we were sorted. Our tour was essentially in two parts the first on the Rungan River aboard the Rahai'i Pangun and the second on the Sekonyer river aboard the Klotok Kosasi. We chose this tour because of the distinctly different focuses on each the first on people and culture and the second on orangutans.

The first section of our Palangkaraya Trip was good - although the river was exceptionally low and we seemed to go up and down the same section of river a number of times as the boat could not get any further either way. We did have more confusion when we got on the Rahai'i Pangun as they thought we were on the boat for four nights and I insisted it was only three. Gaye said that they had not had confirmation of when we were arriving or our itinerary and then said she would arrange our visit to Nyaru Mentang for us on Friday. Once it was all clarified we had a great time - the boat is great and we had a lovely guide Rinni. The boat rides to orangutan island were exceptionally long as the river was low we had to take a small boat. The first time in the small boat it took an hour to get to the island the next day we went further up river and it took 2 and a half hours just to get to the island never mind getting back to the big boat again. I think this was a bit much as there was no toilet, you could not get off the boat and all up the trip took 6 hours. We had an elderly couple on this part of the trip and it was a long morning for them. On reflection these orangutans were very sad when we compared them to the ones we saw in Tanjung Puting. Overall this section was good - great accommodation on board the boat and the Rungan Sari Resort, fantastic food on board the boat and great visits to the local fishing villages along the river.

Our visit to Nyaru Menteng was important to me as it was a documentary i saw years ago on this that made me want to travel to Borneo in the first place. The work they do is really important and we would like to thank them for letting us into the info center on a Friday.

The second part of our Tanjung Puting Trip was FANTASTIC!!!! We LOVED it. It was AMAZING!!! Our crew were fantastic, the Klotok was great and we were amazed you still ran the tour just for the two of us! We were lucky that the Gary Shapiro tour was running at the same time and we were able to spend time with more of your fantastic crew and the other passengers on this tour. The visits to the feeding stations and viewing the orangutans were the highlight of our tour. While lots was happening we still managed to relax and really enjoy the scenery and surroundings while travelling on the river. Our Klotok broke down on the third morning on the river but the crew knew how to fix it and it turned out to be great - all the other boats (and tourists) were at the feeding station, the boat motor wasn't running and the river was peaceful and calm and you could just hear the sounds of the forest. Thanks again to our fantastic and experienced crew!! Thanks for the beer! If you are ever in New Zealand please come and see us, Sarah and David.
