Tangkoko rain forest excursion
Tangkoko rain forest is on the other side of the North Sulawesi peninsula and close to Bitung. We go there by car in about 2 hours and 30 minutes. What time we leave depends on what kind of wildlife you want to see. To prevent too much disturbance to the animals living in the park, there are certain time blocks you are allowed to visit. In general, the best one is to be there in the afternoon. This is because one of the main attractions, the Tarsius monkey, is nocturnal and shows itself often only at dusk. But a lot is possible and depending on your wishes, we can advice you what the best schedule is.
Taking the afternoon schedule as example, we leave around 10 – 11 O’clock. Once in Tangkoko, we have lunch, which we take with us, on the beach. Often you already can spot groups of black macaque monkey’s there. After lunch we hike through the forest until dusk. Other interesting animals are for example horns bill birds and Kuskus. Further, are there beautiful big trees and lots of other interesting vegetation. If it becomes too late to be back in the resort for dinner you will have dinner in a local restaurant in Manado.
We need a minimum of two persons for all tours. If it turns out that you will be the only one, we can arrange the tour with a guide from another company.
