|Kalimantan Travel Tips
About the People
The Dayak people in
the villages of Kalimantan are trustworthy and have a good sense of
humor. Almost every Dayak tribe is self-sufficient, producing all their
own food and supplementing their diet through hunting. Hunting is done
either with home-made rifles, blowpipes or packs of dogs and spears, as
money is difficult to come by in the hinterland of Kalimantan, isolated
from public markets and other sources of cash.
X-Treme Borneo believes that “soft”
tourism can assist the local people economically and help protect
forests. You will be warmly welcomed.
As there is no
English spoken in the hinterland, our English-speaking
guides will assist you.
While it rains
throughout the year in Kalimantan the “dry season”
is July-September, and it is the best time to travel in this area.
Although you will have to contend with hot afternoons and lots of honey
bees, in the dry season the forest creatures are at their loudest,
leaches are few, trails are dry, and butterflies are plentiful. In
recent years the climate has been more difficult to predict than usual,
but the second-best time to visit Kalimantan is November-December when
ripe fruit and wild boar are in abundance. November also tends to be
dry and is honey harvesting season. January and February have the most
rainfall, but there is still a mixture of sun and rain.
