We, mom with three adult sons, had a great trip at the end of December with a great guide! We had a 5 days 4 nights trip starting from Balikpapan and went to the wooden village at the first day. We had a little tour on the Mahakam river and had some great views. Then we went to the village. There we stayed at a real cozy guesthouse. It was better than we expected it to be. Electricity WiFi and an AC! After sightseeing in the village we had a beautiful trip over the river the next day. We spotted multiple animals while going to the other village with a traditional dance performance. The third day we had to travel from the village to the jungle, Kutai National Park, where we did a night trekking and celebrated new years eve. Next day we had a morning, afternoon and a night trekking and saw multiple animals. Most importantly we saw orangutans in their natural habitat!
The next day, three of us stayed in bed in the morning until breakfast, but one went for an early morning trekking before breakfast. After that we went back to Balikpapan.
Our guide was a good English speaking guide who had lots of humor and was keen on helping us having the best time we could. Also Kalimantan Tour Guide arranged cars to travel in which were really comfortable and no problem to travel in for a long time.
We had a blast,
Thanks for everything!
