While you are staying at Samboja Lestari, you don’t have to stay here all the time. Together with the local people we guide our guests through several day trips (on additional costs, because local people have to be hired and we have to pay for the cars etc …) You can go to several places, such as:

SUNGAI HITAM (Black River) 2-3 hour tour
Sungai Hitam is best visited in the early morning and late afternoon. Following a 20 minute drive from Samboja Lestari you take a boat ride along the Sungai Hitam tidal river to see highly endangered Proboscis monkeys and other wildlife. Local fisherman will guide you on this tidal river. The fisherman have been provided with a boat from BOS foundation and a monthly income for there services. They can also use this boat for themselves on free days.

Cost for 1 person costs for 2 people costs for 3 people and more
IDR 600.000 IDR 700.000 IDR 300.000 / person

SUNGAI WAIN full day tour
Less than one hours drive from Samboja Lestari lies the protected forest area of Sungai Wain. This was the first release site of BOS where 75 rehabilitated orangutans were released over 10 years ago. Several female orangutans with babies have been observed on previous visits. Since they are totally wild again, there is no 100% guarantee that you will see one of those released orangutans on this trip. But on this fairly challenging trip  you will see much interesting wildlife. Boots and binoculars are provided and you will have lunch at a local Indonesian "warung".
Cost for 1 person costs for 2 people costs for 3 people and more
IDR 1.000.000 IDR 1.100.000 IDR 450.000 / person

Thirty minutes drives from Samboja Lodge brings you to Lamaru beach, a typical Indonesian beach with white sands, coconut palms en pine trees! Observe locals in action and enjoy a lunch at one of the “warung” restaurants.  Though not one of the cleanest beaches it is an opportunity to see how local Indonesians enjoy their free time and an insight into the local culture. After lunch you will visit the Teritip crocodile farm. Perhaps not the most conservation orientated project but the farm does sustainable produce crocodile products such as wallets, belts, teeth and barbecue meat products. There are also elephants, snakes and other creatures to see at the farm. Late afternoon you will return to Samboja Lodge.
Cost for 1 person costs for 2 people costs for 3 people and more
