Brilliant trip.The jungle and wildlife is superb and all the guides and staff couldn't do enough for us. We were met at the airport late at night by our guide Edy and he was there to help us with anything until he dropped us back 5 days later. The accommodation was more than sufficient.The camp admittedly isn't luxurious but what... More

Just finished the 9 day jungle trek and wanted to put things into perspective for those considering. You will only see semi wild orangutans that are closer to Bukit Lawang, that is, day 2 and day 4 (besides the feeding platform). We saw a semi wild mother and wild baby who came bounding down out of the trees probably expecting... More

We had the 9 days tour with Adi "Black". Truly well organised, nice (but not subservient) and knowledgeable guide respectul of rhe flaura and fauna. Accomodated for our wishes and organised around problems springing up. Very very good treck!

I did a 5 day Bukit Lawang and Tangkahan trip which involved trekking, rafting and elephant trekking/ bathing. It was an unforgettable experience. I was met at the airport by my guide who was very friendly and welcoming. During the trip, the guides showed so much enthusiasm and they really made the trip come to life. They were really informative... More

We LOVED this so much. My husband and I, our 3 boys (12, 10, 7) and grandma (Nonna 70+) created with Clare a full 3 night tour. Clare was very helpful and responded quickly to any questions we had. We were picked up early in the morning from the airport in Medan by Kinol, our guide, and driven up to... More

What a wonderful experience! My boyfriend and I did the 15 day tour and loved every bit of it. I echo Fran's comment about Bukit Lawang - everyone is so friendly! Our guide Kenol was fantastic - he taught us a lot about the jungle while we were trekking and was a lot of fun. I would definitely recommend this... More

We stayed at Sam's Bungalows and loved it. The... More

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
