Orangutans & Komodo Dragons - book locally? or well in advance?

Posted by Canuck101 on 22/6/2014 at 16:28

My fiance and I are headed to Indonesia for 2 weeks in early July. We are hoping to do an Orangutan tour, as well as heading to Flores for snorkeling/komodo dragons. We are leaning towards Sumatra for Orangutans (flying into Medan, and going from there), and flying Bali to Labuanbajo and finding a tour to see the komodo dragons. We've realized we will be there both for Ramadan, as well as high season in Bali. How difficult is it to obtain local tours for these two types of trips? We've scour ...

Posted by Jojc123 on 7/6/2014 at 00:37

Has anyone used poste restante in bali (sanur or kuta) or the gilis? I need something sent to me and I am unsure if poste restante is still offered as a service. Alternatively, I might be able to have it sent directly to a hotel in the gilis but I don't know where I'll be staying til I get there. Ideas or advice? ...

Hello, I am planning a trip through Sulawesi and will be arriving in Makassar before heading to Rantepaeo. My question is , can you fly from Rantepaeo to Manado ? If not is it possible to fly from Poso ? Any advice on getting from this part of Sulawesi up to Manado would be much appreciated we will consider all options. Lastly I have read mixed reviews on whether you can fly from Makassar to Rantepao , Lonely planet say's you can for only 250,000 IDR which seems very cheap even considering thi ...

Me and a friend are crossing from Borneo into East Kalimantan in a day or two, visas allowing, and are hoping to travel south to Balikpapan and take a flight to Surabaya in Java in a few week or so. Just wondered if anyone had any recommendations of where to go and what to do, or any other ideas about where we can fly to Java from. Ideally we'd like to go to the Surabaya side of Java but would be happy to go to Jakarta if it saved us money and/ or a flight change. Any help is much apprecia ...
