3 Days/2 Nights Tangkoko Overnight Tour
Day 01: (12 noon)
Transfer by Safari Tours bus or air-conditioned vehicle to the nature reserve. The 2-hour drive to the 9,000-hectare National Park is quite scenic as we pass through small villages. Lunch en-route. Upon arrival, immediately check in at your homestay. Clients will then be guided by a local forest ranger and Safari Tours guide in search of the Black Crested Macaque (a black monkey indigenous to North Sulawesi), hornbills, and couscous, as well as other fauna specific to the reserve. Depending on what time it gets dark, we will head into the denser part of the jungle as the sun is setting, where you will (most likely) be able to get photographs of the Tarsius tarsier (one of the smallest known primates). After it is completely dark and the tarsiers have departed for their nightly foraging, we head back to the homestay for a basic traditional dinner. Overnight.
Day 02: (Starting 04.30 am)
Rising early, we will again hike into the forest with a local ranger, where clients will have the best opportunity to view more birds and certainly the Black Crested Macaque, as these monkeys are early risers and are searching out food along the coastline at Tangkoko. After several hours, it’s back to the homestay for a full breakfast and a 1- to 2-hour rest. After lunch, we will head back into the jungle for more opportunities to see the Tarsius tarsier (one of the smallest known primates) and other wildlife in the nature reserve. After it is completely dark and the tarsiers have departed for their nightly foraging, we head back to the homestay for dinner. Overnight at the homestay.
(breakfast, lunch, dinner)
Also included is a mangrove trip by traditional fishermen’s boat for more birding or sightseeing opportunities (weather and tide dependent).
DAY: 03 (05.00 am)
Rising early is another opportunity (if you choose) to hike into the forest with a local ranger and safari guide. We return to the homestay for a full breakfast and prepare to check out. 10.00: Latest time leaving the homestay to go back to Manado or to the airport to catch clients’ next destination flight
