Description

The 1,206 m2 Ujong Kulon National Park is located at Java’s westernmost tip. After the 1883 eruption of nearby Krakatoa, many of the park’s villages were wiped out and never repopulated. Because of these particular circumstances, the park became a safe haven for much of Java’s fauna and flora and was declared a Unesco World Heritage site in 1991. Today, Ujong Kulon is the last refuge of the critically endangered Javan rhino, with no more than a few dozen animals left in the wild.

Experience the unique beauty of Ujong Kulon National Park during this 3-day tour. Explore exotic islands of Handeleum and Peucang, snorkel in their pristine surrounding waters and paddle along the primeval-looking Cigenter River. Admire the many colorful fish around the coral reefs and look for monkeys, pythons, hornbills, and rhinos in the dense tropical forests. This tour will be over before you realize, so you better appreciate every single second in this unique environment!

Itinerary

Day 1: Jakarta – Ujong Kulon National Park

  • Wake up early, as you are picked up in Jakarta at 5 am for your transfer to Sumur Port, a few hours southwest of Indonesia’s capital.
  • Upon arrival at the port, you embark a wooden boat for a 1-hour cruise towards Handeleum Island. This island is one of a group of small islands just off the northeastern coast of the Ujong Kulon National Park Peninsula. On the way to Handeleum Island, you stop at Badul Island for snorkeling and swimming. Explore the beautiful coral reef and try to spot angelfish, surgeonfish, clownfish, batfish or butterfly fish.
  • By late afternoon, you check in at the Fauna Eco Lodge on Peucang Island. This charming island is situated in crystal clear water just northwest off Ujong Kulon’s coastline. Its white sandy beaches and stunning coral reefs are home to a wide variety of fauna and flora. You can use your free time to have a look around the island or to relax.
  • Dinner is served around 7 pm.

Day 2: Ujong Kulon National park 

  • Start your day with an amazing 2-hour canoe trip down the Cigenter River on the Ujong Kulon National Park’s peninsula. Paddling this river through the dense overhanging forest is a truly fantastic experience. You might see pythons, hornbills, monkeys, crocodiles or even one of the endangered rhinos that are occasionally sighted in this part of Ujong Kulon National Park. It feels like you are in a Jurassic Park scene, as the Cigenter River is remarkably primeval looking.
  • Return to your boat for a short ride back to Peucang Island, with lunch served on the boat and a snorkel and swim stop at Nyawaan Blue Lagoon.
  • Travel to Cidaon on the peninsula, opposite Peucang Island, where the open grassland is home to wild bulls, pigs, peafowls and leopards.
  • Overnight stay and dinner are at the Fauna Eco Lodge.

Day 3: Ujong Kulon National Park – Jakarta 

  • After breakfast, you explore the northern part of Peucang Island on a beautiful hike. Make your way through towering forests to a rock archway beyond which are the Karang Copong reef pools. Don’t forget to look up, as black monkeys, hornbills, Javan civet cats and giant squirrels inhabit these forests.
  • You can snorkel, swim and have lunch at the pretty Citerjun coral reef, your last stop before returning to Sumur Port and Jakarta.

Exotic adventure

I didn't think it was still possible to explore natural forests on Java. Well, Ujung Kulon National Park is the place to be if nature is what you're after. This park is off the beaten track and definitely worth a visit! Although we didn't end up seeing any rhino's (which was to be expected, as they're critically endangered and very hard to spot), we did see monkeys, pythons, lizards and many species of fish and coral. These three days were over before I even realized. Don't hesitate to book this trip, you'll love it!
