About National Park Taka Bonerata

National Park Taka BonerataThe National Park Taka Bone Rata, located 250km south of Makassar, Sulawesi, is dominated by see pines, coral reef and palm trees. It is the third largest atoll in the world after Kwajifein on the Marshall Islands and Suvadiva in the Maledives. The atoll has a overall size of 220.000 hectare of which 50.000 hectare is made of coral reef.
The area is unique since the 20 small islands in the atoll are made by the coral reef. Of the 20 islands of the atoll only 6 are inhabited and 15 can be used for diving. The park is perfect for marine activities like snorkeling and diving with small ponds surrounded by corral (especially at low tide) and deep straits between the islands.

The national park is considered to contain some of the world's highest marine biodiversity with 261 species of coral, 295 species of fish and 244 species of mollusks and several turtles, including the Hawksbill Turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata), the Green Turtle (Chelonia mydas) and Pacific Ridley Turtle (Lepidochelys olivacea) .

Bantimurung National Park, Makassar, Sulawesi, Indonesia

1 votes cast

Bantimurung National ParkBantimurung National Park is a 480 km2 large nature reserve just 45 km north of Makassar / Ujung Pandang. The name Bantimurang is a combination of the words 'membanting kemurungan' which means 'getting rid of sadness'. The park is famous for its many butterflies. When Sir Alfred Wallace visited this area in 1856 he termed it the 'Kingdom of butterflies'. A name still used till today.
Unfortunately the number of species and amount of butterflies has dropped significantly in the last decades. In the first count there were 270 species, a count in 1997 stopped at 147 species. The last count in 2010 could only found 90 species. Also, besides a decline in species, the total amount of butterflies has dropped significantly: before there were so many butterflies they would gather in groups and drift by in a cloud.
Bantimurung National Park Increased human activity in the area is seen as the cause of this decline. In a response the government has started a butterflies breeding program. But in spite of the decline you can still enjoy the thousands of multi-colored butterflies here especially in or near one of the caves.

Besides the butterflies this National Park is famous for the 15 meter high waterfall. This is the place where most visitors go to. Behind the waterfall are a few caves which you can explore. The waterfall and caves are set in a lush tropical forest with limestone cliffs.
Bantimurang National Park is especially popular in the weekends when local visitors from Makassar head out to the waterfall and adjacent picnic area.

Park entrance is Rp 5,000 per adult. Accommodation to spend the night is available inside the park perimeter for as low as Rp 50,000.
