About Siti’s Tanjung Puting Orangutan Klotok Boat Tours and Kumai Tours
I am originally from East Java, but moved to Kumai, Central Kalimantan many years ago, as I loved the quiet, small town environment and nature. I worked for numerous local tour operators organizing klotok trips and arranging all the trip details, as well as working as a Tanjung Puting klotok guide for two years.
I was trained by Mr. Andi Jaka, Tanjung Puting National Park’s most experienced guide. Mr. Andi has 32 years of experience as a Tanjung Puting guide, and is now part of our team (see below). I am one of six female guides for Tanjung Puting National Park and my company is the only woman-owned tour company in Kumai or Pangkalan Bun, Kalimantan.
I volunteer at a local school teaching English, and can help arrange volunteer opportunities. Please see the volunteer section for more information on volunteer opportunities near Kumai.
