Borneo’s wildlife is diverse and exotic; you will certainly see orangutans and proboscis monkeys in Tanjung Puting National Park. Travelling the rivers by klotok, a traditional Indonesian wooden boat with a shallow draft, makes a very relaxing way to get close to nature. There are 200 bird species here, along with any number of shy mammals. Crocodiles inhabit the waters.
Indigenous Dayak and Malay cultures are strong on Kalimantan and dazzling dance, music and dress play an essential role in festive celebrations.
