Bantimurung National Park & Makasar

Spend the day in and around Makasar beginning with a 60-minute scenic drive into the island’s rugged interior to Bantimurung National Park, a sprawling 106-acre nature reserve. Some of the animals that call this place home are thousands of butterflies. In fact, over 90 butterfly species flutter freely here and the sight is almost as glorious as the famous Bantimurung Waterfall. Cascading 50 feet from gnarled limestone cliffs, the waterfall offers a cool, refreshing escape from the day’s heat. Then, you’ll head back into Makassar for a little shopping at the Terong Traditional Market followed by a buffet lunch. Your final destination is Fort Rotterdam. Built in 1669 over a medieval Gowanese fort, the Dutch fortress is one of the best examples of Dutch architecture in Indonesia. You’ll have 45 minutes to walk and photograph the fort’s impressive exterior before returning to your ship after enjoying a fun-filled day.
