Itinerary

Picked up from  your hotel then transfer by private air-conditioned minivan with the guide to Crocodile Farm. Proceed  walk the jungle canopy walk of Bukit Bankirai. The Canopy Walkway is about 30 meters high,  providing great opportunities for nature watching and fantastic views over the rainforest. Spend time walking along some of the many nature trails. Lunch at the local restaurant. Afterwards  visit Sun Bear Sanctuary. This sanctuary aims to increase awareness of this endearing, but little-known bear species.

Late in the afternoon, hop on a riverboat for a cruise up the mangrove forest to search for wildlife - most notably, the proboscis monkeys which are native to Borneo.  Late afternoon transfer back to your Hotel in Balikpapan.
