Located in the Tanjung Puting Reserve (now National Park) in Central Borneo, Camp Leakey was established in 1971 by Dr. Biruté Galdikas and former spouse Rod Brindamour. This famous research and rehabilitation centre was named after the legendary paleo-anthropologist, Louis Leakey, who was both mentor and an inspiration to Dr. Galdikas as well as Drs. Jane Goodall and Dian Fossey.
Projects have ranged from orangutan, proboscis monkey, gibbon and leaf-eating monkey behavior and ecology, to studies of orangutan sign language abilities and cognition, to leech behavior, and river system ecology. Enjoy the observation of the river vegetation and beautiful forest along the river. Along the trip, encounter some wild orangutan, proboscis monkey, birds and even crocodiles if you’re lucky enough. Stop and visit the Orang-utan education centre and walk through Kalimantan’s richest tropical rainforest
