Natural Splendour at
Tangkoko Nature Reserve
Big googly eyes stare with determination and focus to all that can spot one of the world’s smallest
mammals when navigating through the thick vegetation of Indonesia’s Tangkoko National
Reserve. Manado adventure awaits with a high dose of sustainability.
WHY THIS TOUR?
For decades, Manado has been a strategic base for the Dutch East India Company for its trade routes with surrounding counties. These influences have made this sleepy town for the majority Christian, but with the culture and traditions of the local Minahasa still tangible in the daily lives, Manado has kept its Catholic stronghold position in a predominantly Muslim Indonesia.
As many may favour the reefs and pristine beaches of the Bunaken, the nearby Tangkoko Nature Reserve has topped the list for its extensive natural splendour and is home to numerous unique and indigenous primates and animals.
