The best way to explore the Tanjung Puting National Park and journey deep into the forested surrounds is cruising along the river aboard a klotok houseboat. Named after the noise that the boat makes as it travels – ‘klok tok tok tok’ – these wooden river boats were traditionally used to transport goods and passengers up and down the river, but many have now been converted into houseboats for tourists.
There is no private cabin on this boat, however it is a private boat just for you with a driver, guide and cook. You can choose to sleep on deck or inside the boat on a double mattress with pillows and sheets under a mosquito net. Toilet facilities are basic.
