Tangkoko Wildlife Tour - Day Tours


  1. Two of us did an all-day tour with Julian in mid-May. I contacted him via email a week or so before and were happy that he could accommodate us. He picked us up at our dive resort in Bitung (about an hour away) and even stopped at an ATM en route to Tangkoko as we were running low on cash! Julian has a great ear for birds and is very attuned to animals and birds in Tangkoko. On this trip we sighted hornbills, an owl, kingfishers, red-backed thrush. We also spotted a cuscus and saw the tarsiers, but the numerous macaques were perhaps the most fun to observe. One of the nicest parts of the tour was just wandering in the forest among the beautiful big trees, and hearing the sounds of the forest. IN addition to great guding, Julian handled all details superbly, from safely driving us back and forth, to delivering us to a nice lunch spot in Tangkoko, to providing water. In addition to being very knowledgeable about the forest and its birds and animals, he is a great person to spend a day with and is very relaxed and a great resource for learning a little bit about North Sulawesi generally. The bugs weren't too bad on our trip but you want to be armed with insect repellent. It was quite hot so you might want to bring extra water. We did the all-day tour but if you didn't have that much time, the afternoon tour might be better as we saw more wildlife then. Do bring good walking shoes as we walked quite a bit over the course of the day.
