East Java Indonesia’s savanna, Baluran National Park, is a haven for nature lovers. It’s teeming with wildlife, flora and fauna, and well-surrounded by a picturesque scenery that’s like fuel to the soul. Anyone who wants to renew their spirit amid beautiful surroundings will find peace here.

The main attraction in Baluran National Park is Bekol Savannah, a lush evergreen forest, which has the dormant volcano Mount Baluran in the background. Water buffaloes, deer, leopards, and fowls are just some species you can see roaming around the 300-hectare savanna. At the edge of the national park is the unexploited Bama Beach, offering a mesmerizing scene of a sparkling ocean. It offers various water activities, from canoeing to diving and snorkeling.

Baluran National Park is easily accessible from Surabaya, the capital of the East Java region, where domestic and international flights are coursed. It’s your gateway to the province from major Asian cities like Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, and Jeddah.

Click below & search recommended Baluran hotels/hostels/home rentals within your budget. Remember to set your min/max price, travel dates, and sort by review ratings. I often book online with these trusted booking sites below for rock-bottom prices & convenient bookings.


Book sooner rather than later if you already have your dates set. Cheaper-priced rooms and hotels with high reviews tend to get fully booked faster, especially during busy days like weekends, holidays & peak tourist seasons.
