Responsible tourism: Borneo ecolodge accommodation

The Lodge was built in 1991 by Professor Biruthe Galdikas (a world expert on the Orangutan) and a Chinese investor with the aim of assisting in the protection of Orangutans and other endangered primate species in The Tandjung Puting National park (eg The Proboscis Monkey).

Our aim has been to upgrade the lodge to a comfortable place where eco tourists can stay and see one of the most diverse areas in the world for primates (there are nine species in the park). As well as this, the area is also excellent for birds and butterflies. The Tandjung Puting national park is the largest area of lowland forest left in Borneo and it is under continuous threat.

The lodge has been developed to make a difference as follows:

- Develop an eco hotel following the principles of GG which should give further employment opportunities to local people in the area
- Develop a surplus cash flow situation whereby over 80% of profits will be returned into environmental protection in The Tandjung Puting National park or development of other ecolodges.
- Commit to protect 100 hectares of forest (currently owned by the Galdikas family) which surrounds the lodge
- Give tourist a unique experience of a forest holiday in Borneo. There is no doubt that this can be achieved as The Orangutan International (contact Ashley Leiman) has been sending groups to this location (through Steppes Discovery) for many years.
