A new venture for The Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation (BOSF) is the construction of our Samboja Lodge facility. Here, for the first time, visitors will be able to work closely with us in the many projects currently active in Samboja Lestari in aid of saving our rainforests and the orangutan. The Lodge’s unique design is based upon local architecture. All interior and exterior walls are made of recycled materials. The cosmetic touches are all traditional Kalimantan handicrafts and are produced by both local and Dayak communities around the Island. You can even purchase these items if you decide you like them! The Lodge is surrounded by lush vegetation and each room has its own patio or balcony in which to enjoy the greenery. The glass doors can fold open allowing you to choose between having a barrier to nature, or being completely open to it! The area around the Lodge has been planted with many indigenous tree species, flowers and fruiting trees. There is also a salt lake, which attracts many animals right beside the Lodge. The Lodge rooms also overlook the Orangutan Islands. At night, the evening sky is full of stars and the Southern Cross is easily visible. It is our hope that your stay with us will encourage you to continue your support for the preservation of our natural spaces. Through our planned visitors activities, you will be able to become a part of our daily work team. In this way, you will gain first hand knowledge on what is required to rebuild a forest and protect its wildlife. So come on, get your hands dirty, work and eat with us, and plant your own special tree as a lasting memory of your visit! You will even be able to track your tree’s progress on the Internet.

BUKIT-RAYA---GUESTHOUSE-02
Info guesthouse Palangka Raya is the capital of Central Kalimantan province, Indonesia. A small city, far away from the main streams of tourism, business and public awareness. A kind town with approx. 200’000 inhabitants, spaciously planned with wide streets and squares in the centre. Timber, coal, gold and many other natural resources attracts people to come to Palangka Raya. On the other hand, projects for Orang-Utan rehabilitation and WWF activities all around the wide tropical forests and peat swamps are reasons for people from all around the world to visit Central Kalimantan. A growing demand for short-, medium- and long-term accommodation in a private and quiet environment is in contrast to the very limited hotel and accommodation facilities of the city. Why Palangka Raya? Why should you come tot Palangka Raya anyway? We can help you with arranging several trips, which you can undertake around Palangka Raya. You can make a boat trip and watch orang utans on the Kaja island in the Rangun river, where they are prepared for real life in the jungle. During this daytrip you can enjoy the views from the Rangun river and watch it more closely. Next to that you can take a look into wild life, for you’ll probably see kingfish, makak monkeys, beautifully coloured birds and, who knows, sunbears, too. During this trip you see local fishermen, a village at the bank of the river, you can go swimming at a white sand beach and take a stroll into the jungle. A Central Borneo cruise offers you the possibility to go on the river for a few days. They have a beautiful boat hotel. You can send an email to: kapalsusursungai@yahoo.com A trip through the wild landscape by jeep or motorbike, a discovery trip to the life and living of the Dayaks, the visit of special Dayak-events, it’s all possible. Take a look on this site: www.heart-of-borneo.net Do you prefer to go swimming in a swimming pool, or to play golf, pay a visit to the market by day or by night, climb the Tangkiling mountain, etc.: we can help you with this! If we know it in time, you can undertake a plane flight in a small waterplane. That plane can get you much closer to the real jungle. Or maybe you want to pay a visit to Marikoi, where a local guide can take you to the jungle. (See to it that you have boots and wear long pants, so that blood suckers won’t find your legs) Or do you want to go to the world famous Tanjung Puting monkey reserve? You can fly to it, but there are buses going to Pangkalanbun. From there you continue to Tanjung Putting. It’s quite a trip, but in this ways it’s cheap. We can help you with arranging your trip. What about a delicious massage? Daily we can arrange a massage. After such a massage you’ll feel completely relaxed and your tiredness after a day of many impressions, is gone. Do you want to know more about the possibilities. Don’t hesitate to mail us. We are full of ideas about what to undertake in this particular and wonderful area.
