Spend your time to observe the wild orangutan and other amazing animal in Kutai National Park.



Spend your time to observe the orangutan in wildlife. Find out their condition after the massive fire at Kutai National Park


All the orangutan here are wild. No feeding time as this place is non tourist object. No luxury, you will stay in a simple ranger camp with basic facility. Enjoy the night walking to find nocturne animal.

Kutai National Park represents a number of principal vegetation types, including coastal/mangrove forest, freshwater swamp forest, kerangas forest, lowland flooding forest, ulin/meranti/kapur forest, and mixed Dipterocarpaceae forest. Kutai national park is also part of the largest relatively pristine ulin forest in Indonesia.

    Hi everyone , we are planning our trip to Indonesia in September / October 2019 and we are interested in the Kutai National Park. Could you be so kind and tell us, how can we get there from the Balikpapan airport? We would like to stay in the park for 2 days / 1 night or 3 days/2 night.

    Hi, I’m travelling as part of a group of 4 who’d love to spend 3 days/ 2 nights in Kutai National Park to see wild Orangutans. We’d be flying in from Bali and then flying out to Singapore from Balkipapan airport. Is this something you’d be able to cater for and at what price please?
