This NP is not so well known but is a little paradise. We can see different ecosystems in a few hours (savanna, jungle, mangrove, montain, beach...) and of course see many animals (buffalos, monkeys, eagles, iguana, deers...)

Recommended to visit when you're in Banyuwangi. Although we only see monkeys, deers and buffalos but sunset at Baluran National Park is worth to wait. Come to Baluran at the noon so you don't have to wait too long for sunset.

We hesitated to go there first, as we did not only read positive reviews, but we have absolutely NO regret! Went there for an early trip (5am to 10am) with a local guide from the Ecolodge (very nice!). The park has some unique atmosphere. You...More

You can feel a little Africa here. The savanna with Ijen mountain as a background. Good place to take a photo, but also perfect place to watch sunset. If you visit this place when rainy days, you can find green savanna, but if you visit...More
