We had a fantastic time. Seemed like such a long tome away from home. Trip team was excellent and would totally recommend the trek. The tubing out on the last day was worth the hill hiking.

We lived in Medan and Jakarta for two years. My wife and I decided to drive to BL to see the orangutan living in the wild. They are extremely strong but gentle as long as you are not threatening. A mother with her little one in tow sat down right beside me. I looked at her (she was only 1-2... More

We visited Sumatra this time last year but I have been meaning to mention what an amazing experience this really was. 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 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
