East Borneo Indonesia

During the summer of 2014, I visited the eastern shores of Borneo. With wildlife and uncharted territories all around, this place is a bliss for wildlife lovers. The entry is through the oil town of Balikpapan.





Useful Information:

Balikpapan is a city in East Kalimantan. It serves as headquarters for international oil companies, mining companies and related support industries operating in (and out of) eastern Kalimantan.

The city is well connected to Jakarta, Surabaya, Makassar, Yogyakarta and Tarakan. It is also connected to Singapore by Silk Air. The best way to travel around is by a taxi.

Novotel Hotel near the seafront is a great option to stay and easy walks are near the hotel for enjoying the local vive. We had a great lunch at Dandito, the crab specialty restaurant.

Sungai Wain is about 35 kms from Balikpapan Airport and takes 1 hr depending on traffic. The guide charges Rp 100,000 per hour. This is a great place to hike the jungles and might get lucky to see some wildlife.
