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 wouldn’t get a chance to see these amazing apes. They are shy and elusive in the forest. We did see 2 building nests by the river from the boat but only saw the glimpse of an arm. The Klotok was a brilliant experience and we loved every minute. You can see endemic proboscis monkeys from the boat: only found in Borneo.
The main downside was the appalling behaviour of some of the visitors. Speaking loudly in front of a sign saying Silence isn’t acceptable and allowing children to throw sticks in front of the feeding station is wrong and stupid. However when I asked people to stop in a polite way they were very rude. It made me ashamed to be European. I think some people confuse this with a Disney attraction or a zoo. We must respect these lovely gentle creatures and this brilliant work.
