The other interesting animals require patience including; proboscis monkey, crab eating macaques, small crocodiles, wild pig, deer, monitor lizards and hornbill, they show up occasionally.
The boating route to the national park is very memorable experience, leading alone the jet black, nipa palm fringed the Sekonyer river, while the black water rich of tannins organic acid and poor of oxygen reflects the sky and trees like a mirror. And Tanjung Putting National Park very popular with location for Orang Utans Rehabilitation and Research.
