This is the most famous of the three feeding stations found along the Sekonyer River in Tanjung Puting National Park. My spouse and I visited in mid-September 2018 when crowds were smaller than during the high season. Nevertheless, the boat congestion was still unbelievable on...More

We took a klotok to an area near Camp Leakey and then hiked about 45 minutes to a feeding station where we hoped orangutans would come to fill up on bananas and coconuts. In addition to several orangutans, we saw wild boar and other kinds...More

This place and experience are very special. The orang utans were so beautiful and fascinating. Apart from breaking branches when travelling effortlessly through the treetops they are silent. One day we also saw a black handed gibbon too. If there were no feeding stations you...More

Camp Leakey provides education and passion for the conservation of orangutans. It is inspiring and provides a wonderful experience for observing the orangutans as they come for a feed of bananas.

Slightly disappointing museum/info centre that feels neglected, however because it was the original rehabilitation centre, the orangutans here are very comfortable with people and its likely to be the place you'll have a close-up encounter. There's a delightful gibbon who comes to the feeding platform...More

Started in the 1970's, this humble research center doesn't look like much. But, it is the final destination in the three feeding station tour of the orangutans and other wildlife. This walk is relatively easy compared to the first feeding station (it's long, but the...More
