It is home not only to the famous orangutans, but also family groups of Proboscis monkey (Nasalis Larvatus), endemic birds and colorful butterflies. There lives a rare species of crocodiles in the river, therefore swimming is strictly prohibited. Enjoy the ever-changing landscape on the river banks, from plantations to rain forest. Later Check-in and overnight at the Lodge.

A short trek will take you to the feeding platform to see wild orangutans. After this first excursion, return to the boat and proceed to Camp Leakey. A small museum informs about the work of Dr. Birutè Galdikas for the orangutans of Borneo. Join another feeding at the platform in the afternoon. The way to the platform takes about 45 minutes, accompanied by a local ranger. Depending on the time of day, you may encounter some of the younger and more curious orangutans along the way. Please keep in mind to keep your distance, do not feed wild animals and follow the ranger's instructions. Return to the lodge in the late afternoon. Overnight at the lodge.
