WOW Borneo’s Private Charter Orangutan Cruise Option provides the perfect way to travel on board luxurious boats, with family, friends or for businesses wanting to provide a special experience to their employees. Ideal both for small or larger groups, for meal or full day cruises, or overnights, for a few people to a maximum of 30 people on board our large Rahai’i Pangun, our Private Charter option may be the best option for you.

Groups all enjoy fabulous cuisine on the spacious and comfortable viewing deck whilst passing through forest lined rivers to spot orangutans. The boats are a great way to relax, spend quality time with family, friends or colleagues, away from busy city life, immersed in the unique scenery.

The Rahai’i Pangun is our largest vessel. This boat sleeps a maximum of 12 passengers overnight or can host 30 passengers for day cruises. With bespoke programs and flexible meal options, this is a special experience is based near the city of Palangka Raya.

The Spirit of Kalimantan is operating on the Katingan River and is available for scheduled cruises and Private Charters. Private tours can be specially designed for guests, or guests can opt to take the Spirit out on our regular itinerary.

The Sekonyer in Tanjung Puting National Park, can accommodate up to 6 passengers overnight, so is ideal to charter privately for families or friends who want to have the boat to themselves. Our regular program is adhered to in the park, and day tours are not possible in this location.



    Last week WOW Borneo (KTD) arranged our trip and accompanied by our wonderful Dayak guide Dodi (and ’trainee’ guide Jonathan) we travelled upto see the long house (*betang*) at a little village called Tumbang Gagu, right up in the headwaters of the Sampit (or Mentaya) River.

    This Jungle River Cruise gave us a great present! The river and time pass slowly on the boat. Not only orangutans and jungle but also the people, especially the children of the village moved us so much. I was impressed!

    This tour was one of the best vacation and wildlife experiences I have had (and I have seen pretty much everything in Africa). Despite all it has to offer, Kalimantan is a tough place to vacation in so I was not expecting much. However, I was blown away by this trip.
