#expeditioncruising


Embark on an Indonesian odyssey through exotic locales while marvelling at volcanic landscapes, greeting orangutan families at Camp Leakey and exploring picturesque islands, aboard Silver Discoverer's 11-day voyage from Balikpapan to Singapore.

Departing on 18 October 2016, Silver Discoverer navigates through the Java Sea to port at Tanjung Wangi, Pasuruan, Sumenep and Karimunjawa before sailing to Kumai (Camp Leakey). Silversea is offering its guests a rare and unforgettable opportunity to visit the world famous Camp Leaky and visit exclusive parts of the nature reserve usually closed to the general public. Located in the Tanjung Puting Reserve (now a National Park) in Central Borneo, Camp Leakey is devoted to the conservation of wild Orangutans and their rainforest habitat.

Following a day at sea, Silver Discoverer then arrives at Kepulauan Banda, a group of islands in the Tudjuh Archipelago where guests can enjoy the spectacular underwater world with a swim, snorkel or scuba dive through the turquoise waters surrounding the islands. This voyage concludes in Singapore with guests disembarking on 29 October 2016.
