Indonesia Herping

JAVA

JAKARTA – BOGOR ACTION PACKED (ONE DAY)
PRICE: Rp 2.500.000 (2 people)

DESCRIPTION: This is most suitable for people who have a one-day stop over in Jakarta (around 24 hours) and want to see as much wildlife as possible. In the morning, we will pick you up from either Soekarno-Hatta Airport in Jakarta, or your hotel in Jakarta/Bogor. We will then visit the Ciliwung Reptile Center in Bogor, to see some captive animals and learn about their conservation efforts. Lunch will be served, perhaps some traditional home-cooked Indonesian food. After lunch, we will explore the Ciliwung River during the day, to see the wildlife in the riparian habitats. We will then head to Jakarta to see some wildlife in Muara Angke Nature Reserve. At night, we will also do some herping at the reserve, which is mangrove habitat.

The other option instead of Muara Angke is to do herping in Bogor, where we can visit some lowland forest, rice paddies, rivers, and a selection of various other sites (excluding National Parks). The sites we visit are your choice, depending on what you prefer; there are sites where it is quite flat terrain, and there are also more challenging habitats where we must wade waist-deep in the river, climb, and trudge through mud. We will start herping from sunset until you wish to stop (max. until sunrise).

After herping, we will have some street food, and send you back to the hotel or airport.

Price Includes: Wildlife Guide, Translator, Driver, Transport, Food (two meals) and Water, Permits and Entry to Nature Reserve.

Price Excludes: Flights from Origin to Jakarta and back to Origin, extra snacks, souvenirs, etc.
