Silversea Expedition Cruises To Kumai (Camp Leakey)

Kumai (Camp Leakey)

The mouth of the Kumai River is shallow and broad, cutting a swath into the lush green shorelines of southern Borneo. Once across the bar at the river’s mouth, the hauntingly beautiful sounds of a call-to-prayer can often-times be heard on approach to the busy port of Kumai itself. Kumai is the access point for one 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. View more

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. Tanjung Puting is home to Camp Leakey, a base for scientists, staff, students, and Park Rangers studying wildlife in the Tanjung Puting National Park. Over the years, projects have mainly focused on the orangutan, but also on proboscis monkeys, gibbons and leaf-eating monkeys. Several other primate species are found in the park along with clouded leopards, civets, Malaysian sun bears, mouse deer, barking deer, sambar deer, wild cattle, and over 230 species of birds
