Pontianak and Balikpapan, Kalimantan Barat, Indonesia

Hi Traveler, I am "Burdan" , living at Indonesian Borneo Island, also called Kalimantan, which is known of it's vast jungle with wildlife as orangutans, fresh water dolphins and proboscis monkeys.

My passion for the nature and adventure, skilled me to become a tour guide for almost 20 years now. I am capable to provide top-quality multi-day tours from the cities to the most remote outer-edge in the rain forest.

I enjoyed outdoor and experienced the forest with cultural of the native Dayak tribes since I started scouting at the age of 10 years, after my graduation I started my work at Balikpapan International Sepinggan Air port (PIC:Promotion &Information Center), afterwards at Blue Sky Hotel Balikpapan, and Royal Resort In Bali, before coming a tour guide.

Welcome to the Jungle….
