From the lodge excursions are made by klotok (wooden boats) to a number of orang utan feeding stations in the Tanjung Puting National Park. The most famous of these, Camp Leakey, was established in 1971 by Professor Birute Galdikas, a student of Professor Louis Leakey after which the camp is named. On walks through the rainforest other wildlife can also be seen, including gibbons, butterflies and many species of bird, and at night, tarsiers, glowing mushrooms, fireflies and owls. Proboscis monkeys and macaques are often seen from the lodge itself.
