Africa Van Java

One of my buddy - Okta (@oktasawira) asked me to join him and Guindra (@guindra) traveling around East Java. Baluran was pop up in my head. Midnight road trip from Malang to Banyuwangi on 4th March 2011. It took seven hours from Malang to Banyuwangi. We arrived in Banyuwangi around 5  AM then head to Guindra’s friend whose father  passed away, Alfian. I've never explored Banyuwangi. Padma and Trisna also joined our trip, they're Guindra’s friend. We continued our trip from Banyuwangi to Baluran National Park, Situbondo. It took two hours by car. You can guess, I slept during road trip, I used to awake when i travel, because when we look deep into nature, and you will understand everything better. I think after four days delivering training in Tulung Agung then traveling makes me want to sleep a lot.

Baluran National Park

Baluran National Park is located in Jalan Raya Banyuwangi-Situbondo, Km 35, Wonorejo, Banyuputih  68374

Bekol Savannah is one of the highlights among Baluran’s tourist attractions, occupying more less 300 hectare of total 10.000 hectare of Baluran savannah area, this is the only  and the largest savannah ground in Java island. With Mount Baluran as the background, the savannah will sure make all travelers feel as  if they’re in Africa. It is habitat of various kind of animals doing their activities.

What to do: Hiking, tracking, snorkeling, canoeing, bird-watching, photography, and wildlife observation. 

If you want to see mini Africa, September is the best month because yellow grass grows everywhere around this place. No need to worry, they offer cheap price for bungalow and accommodation. So, what are you waiting for?
