Great stay with these guys. After doing some research online this seemed like one of the best places in the world to see genuinely wild orang-utans. Our guide Iful was great, a really nice young guy with a great manner and real knowledge about the jungle. This was no touristy activity but a full on three day jungle trek with... More

I loved this place. Johann and his family made it a very special experience to visit the Sumatran jungle. Johann and his guides' enthusiasm with the rainforest and the animals was fantastic. We spent 11 days in the jungle with our guides and assistants Udin, Iful, Roger and Sabirin and we had beautiful encounters with lots of orang utangs. In... More

We travelled 2,5 months in Indonesia and started in Sumatra. Wisma Cinta Alam was definitely the best place we have stayed! The jungle around is very beautiful and pure with real wild animals. Johan and his family are really warm and welcoming people. We had a three day two night trip with Johan (a really experienced guide who knows how... More

We had a good time in this place. Rooms are basic but nice (don't expect daily cleaning). Bathroom could use some more cleaning. We took a jungle trek with Romi (the son of Johan) and we saw everything we wanted to see. Romi was very competend and a great guide: he could point to monkeys that if alone I would... More

Our first experience of Johan was in trying to figure out how to get from the Banyak Islands to Ketambe. Johan sorted it all out for us at no cost (and no commission!), even including picking us up in his 4wd at 4.30am from Kutacane. From there our experiences only got better as Johan and family bent over backwards to... More

The cottages are outdated! Walls you can see through outside, floors crooked and the floorcarpeting broken on all sides. i don't think the bathroom was cleaned in several years. Hosts are only friendly if they can sell something. Sitting in pyjama's most of the day... Across te street there is a brandnew Homestay for the same price!!! Just pass Wisma... More

We have been away for 7 months and this experience was by far the best we have had. Johan is a wonderful guy and puts you at ease immediately with his kind smile and jokes! We really struggled whether to choose a 2 or 3 day trek as we were on a budget but I can highly recommend the 3... More

The experience I had at Wisma Cinta Alam was nothing beyond accommodating, friendly and expeceptional. The condition of the rooms at Cinta Alam are quite good and Johan's family is very warm and welcoming. The food was amazing and the hospitality was beyong comparable. I was so sad to leave. During February a couple of friends and I traveled to... More

We made a 6 days trek with Udin, the brother of Johanns wife. We saw lot of wildlife and different parts of the jungle. Udin was very enthusiastic, does make an effort all day long and cares about the wildlife! He is a real jungle guy and helped us to cross rivers where we thought it is impossible to pass... More

After 3 longer visits in Cinta Alam GH in Ketambe I feel the time is right for a comment. Usually I stay here for a couple of weeks and enjoy the stunning view from my bungalow of the rainforest on the western bank of Alas river. A few times I was allready trekking for 2-5 days tours with Johann and... More
