First guests from Tischler Reisen

Large European travel company Tischler Reisen have included the Rahai'i Pangun Jungle River Cruises in their current catalogue. This week we had their first guests.

Over 3 relaxing days of calm weather, the Rahai'i Pangun journeyed up the Rungan River seeing orangutans peacefully on river islands, taking canoes for exhilarating excursions into the shimmering flooded lakes, visited the BOS Foundation's Education Centre to see orangutan rehabilitation programs, stood at the site of the holy Batu Banama rock to see spirit houses and cruised to a tiny village to see traditionally made kecapi or stringed music instruments and watch as the finishing touches were put on a hand built canoe.

Our guests set off this morning for the next leg of their Indonesian adventure, to Bali and Komodo.
