A Walk in the Sebangau National Park with WOW Borneo

We’re opening a new cruise route on the Katingan River from November 2016. Explore with us the Sebangau National Park, traditional Dayak communities, float over the perfect reflections on black water lakes, watch as the thorny rattan vines are woven into beautiful mats, all accessible from the Katingan River and our adventurous little boat, the Ruhui Rahayu. The Sebangau National Park is home to the largest population of wild orang-utans in the world, as well as many other endangered species such as the Malayan sun bear, gibbons, hornbills and the clouded leopard.


Be the first to experience this new route from info@wowborneo.com.

VIP Eco cruise boat preview

On 22 May, as part of the Isen Mulang Festival and 50th Anniversary of Central Kalimantan, we will preview our eco cruise boat, currently under renovation, to a group of VIP’s from Jakarta, guests of the Governor.

The first to be operating on the rivers of Central Kalimantan, this boat is a major step forward for tourism. Taking guests in to the heart of the jungle to see unique wildlife, traditional lifestyles and stunning scenery, this boat will be equipped with 5 cabins, 3 bathrooms, dining area, covered viewing decks, and air conditioning. From its comfort, the guest can enter areas not before seen by tourists and later, take adventurous treks through the national park to seek the iconic orangutan in its native habitat.

VIP’s will be treated the the traditional Dayak boat naming ceremony on 22 May, whereby a Dukun will bless and give the most propotitious name to the boat. Work will be finished by August, and we hope to be taking our first guests in September.
