Trip to Borneo to See Orangutans

Jump to last reply

Greetings -

My husband has offered to take me to Borneo to see orangutans for my 40th birthday. This is a lifelong dream!

I'd love to hear from any of you who have been to Borneo to see orangutans. Tours seem to very greatly from an incredible (and incredibly expensive) tour with Dr. Galdikas herself, to the extremely rustic sleeping on boat decks on mats with mosquito nets (and no guarantees of sightings).

There's a lot to choose from! I love the Galdikas trip, and know it will be mind blowing, but the price tag scares me. I want to know that I will see orangutans close up and possibly have some sort of interaction with them.

We'd also love to spend a little time snorkeling in Borneo before we head back to the states.

I welcome your thoughts!

Warmly,
Bobbie
