Clare helped us to organise the tour at the time and she was absolutely great in providing recommendations and general tips. When we arrived, everything went very smoothly and we did not have any problems with the itinerary at... More

We did a 9 day trip all organised by email with Expedition Jungle. We were collected at Medan airport; spent 2 nights at Tangkahan (washing elephants, elephant treking, swimming in the river), 3 nights at Bukit Lawang (actual jungle trek with one night in the jungle) and 3 nights at Lake Toba (seeing the island and chilling by the lake)....

My sister and I did the 9 day tiger trek. The trek itself was incredible- the local guide really is an expert on the jungle and we saw orang utans, gibbons, leaf monkeys and more. Each evening we were treated to a feast of Indonesian specialities, and we would sit outside watching the fireflies. The porters were brilliant and each... More
