Overview

Kalimantan Tour Destinations (KTD) unique cruise boats take you along meandering jungle lined rivers, passing islands with orang utans visible in the trees and the briliant splashes of kites, hornbills and kingfishers overhead. Further upstream visit villages and meet the inhabitants dependent on the jungle and the river for their livelihoods.
