Stops will be made at remote Indonesian islands and bustling port towns, with a highlight being the chance to see orang utans from Camp Leakey on Kalimantan on a private escorted excursion by Dr Biruté Mary Galdikas, the world's foremost authority on these remarkable animals.

The busy port of Kumai at the mouth of the Kumai river is the access point for one of Borneo's most important national parks: Tanjung Puting. The park protects possibly the largest and most diverse coastal tropical heath and peat swamp forests left in southern Borneo. The area was originally protected in 1935 and remains substantially wild and natural, although wildfires in recent years have taken a toll in some areas. During your stay there will be an opportunity to spot wild orang utans, including an escorted excursion from Camp Leakey led by Dr Biruté Mary Galdikas, the world's foremost authority on the orang utan. Day 10 is spent at sea. (B, L, D)
The verdant islands of Kepulauan Badas are part of the Tudjuh archipelago, located in the South China Sea west of Borneo. Far from any regular commerce routes, the relative isolation of the islands and their hilly, rugged coastlines have led to the development of only small settlements where people live a largely subsistence lifestyle focused on the seas around them. There are a few sandy beaches and fringing reefs in the crystal clear waters around the islands - all potential snorkel sites to be explored. (B, L, D)
