From $86 per person
Take an early morning bird walk around the Rimba Lodge; there is a special bird walk at the end of the lodge. Breakfast is at 0730, Leave 0830 to the Pesalat reafforestation centre. The walk in from the river takes 45 minutes through swamp forest on a board walk, past a small medicinal plant area to “The Friends of the National Park” reforestation area (severely burned in 2006). This is a very good birding and walking area; also Clouded Leopard and Sun Bear spoor has been seen here. For only US$ 5 you can choose and plant a tree.
At around 1130 you should be back at the boat for your visit to the famous Camp Leakey (possibly the most famous place for Orangutan Research in the world) having lunch on the way. A short visit to The Education Centre there is a must; also you may see Agile Gibbons and pigs in the camp. You then proceed to the Feeding Centre. Your guide will carry water but you should take no food. You should eat no food or drink water near an Orangutan. Humans transmit diseases to Orangutans; thus please do not initiate contact (for their sakes). Occasionally an Orangutan may take you by the hand – relax and enjoy it. Camp Leakey feeding is funded by donations to The Orangutan Foundation International USA (Professor Dr Birute Galdikas). Then you walk back to the boat for a great trip home in the evening through many roosting Proboscis Monkeys
After dinner at the Lodge your Guide will show a DVD about the famous Orangutan at Camp Leakey KOSASI and his mentor Birute Galdikas.
