There are a number of different Central Borneo Tours available to tourists who are interested in diverse and interesting adventure experiences venturing into the heart of Borneo. Witnessing the culture of the local Dayak people as well as seeing the incredible wildlife that exists throughout the area using land and river travel is truly a thrilling experience and is widely considered to be one of the best types of tour that Indonesia offers. Most of the tours are centered around the destination of Camp Leakey which is located in the centre of the province where the scenery is largely rainforest and jungle negotiable only by boat on the network or rivers which run through the entire area. Borneo is the third largest island in the world and offers a whole array of scenery and a diverse mix of cultures throughout the entire area. You will certainly meet the friendly Dayak people who are very connected to the landscapes in which they live, especially the rivers which are the main forms of transport. There are also a number of Malay societies as well as Chinese Indonesian and other Indonesian cultures from the neighboring islands. As well as all of this you will be able to see the great wildlife existing in their natural habitat where they are protected and researched upon.
Central Borneo Tours usually end up in or pass Camp Leakey where you will be able to view the magnificent orangutans but along the way you are likely to see the other animals that live in the National Park including crocodiles, bears and plenty of lizards and wonderful tropical insects and birds. You will live aboard the long traditional boat in most instances which offers a great sense of adventure but there is usually the option when the boat stops to sleep on land in the camps located along the river up the route. These adventures usually include trips to the local villages where you will usually find floating houses and markets as well as long houses and a great culture of traditional people who are always happy to show their culture to those who are interested.
You will have on many of the Central Borneo Tours, the chance to go white water rafting as well as trekking through young and old rainforests which is great for raising awareness of the deforestation which is such a big danger to the indigenous wildlife in Central Borneo. The white water rafting is usually offered in the longer Central Borneo Tours when there is more time to see the sights as well as taking part in the exciting activities. There are a number of different grades of runs available from easy and mellow to more advances, all of these runs are suited to first timers although some require a more daring physically capable crew than others. With so much to see and with everything included in the price such as accommodation and food, you are only required to make your personal contributions to the noble causes that you wish to visit if you wish.
