Silversea Luxury Cruises À Kumai (Gateway for Camp Leakey)

Kumai is a port town in southern Borneo and serves as the gateway to Tanjung Puting, one of the most important national parks of Indonesia. This largely undeveloped and wild national park possesses the largest and most diverse examples of coastal tropical heath and peat swamp forest of southern Borneo. Declared a National Park in 1982, orangutan and other primate species can be found in the park. View more

Using Zodiacs and local boats to cruise into the Tanjung Puting National Park one of the main goals is to take a private tour of Camp Leakey, the landmark research station. Meeting Dr. Biruté Mary Galdikas, one of the founding scientists, and learning of her 45 years devoted to the study, care and preservation of endangered orangutans will be a highlight of the Camp Leakey visit.
