General
Pulau Kimaam Wildlife Reserve is located on Pulau Kimaam, also known as Pulau Dolok and Pulau Yos Sudarso. The 689,000 ha. reserve lies southwest of Merauke and includes the southern part of Pulau Kimaam and the adjacent Pulau Komolom. It’s the largest wetland reserve of Irian Jaya. Main habitats consist of mangrove and swamp forests. The local inhabitants live in houses on artificial islands in the swamps.

The trip will take anything between 8-24 hrs. depending on the weather and the boat you hire. During the dry season there’s a possibility to travel by land to Okaba or Kumbis and hire a canoe there.
