    It costs about Rp 500,000 (November 2009) to rent a speedboat full day to visit camp leakey. On the way, you could ask the driver to stop by for spots to look closer at the primates. If your lucky, you may find them on the trees along the river..
    My trip was arranged by a friend, but it should be easy to rent a boat in the Kumai harbor. Just ask around..
