Danau Sentarum (indon. Taman Nasional Danau Sentarum) - a national park in Indonesia, on the island of Kalimantan. Located in the province of West Kalimantan, in the upper part of the Kapuas River Basin, about 700 km from the delta. Includes a system of lakes and swamps. The reserve with an area of ​​800 km² was established in 1982, and in 1994 it was expanded to 1320 km² and became the object of the Ramsar Convention. In 1999, it was declared a national park, but the organization managing the park began its work only in 2006.

The park is home to 240 species of fish, 237 species of birds (such as, for example, the Malay woolly-necked stork and pheasant argus) and 143 species of mammals. Of the mammals, 23 species are endemic to Kalimantan, including nosaschi. In addition, a rather large population of orangutans lives here. 26 species of reptiles include gavial crocodile and combed crocodile.
