The rooms are basic but good value (I paid 150,000 rupiahs) and this establishment is located on the river side of the road. We saw a huge flock of flying foxes swooping down over the Alas River the night we arrived. Must've been hundreds of them. Food was very good and they had plenty of beer. This is the original...

Our group was two girls (18 and 19) and we had an amazing time. Trekking was not too strenuous and there was the perfect balance of relaxing and walking. Of course getting lucky with orangutan sightings made the experience all the more impressive, but making friends with the guides (putra and udin) and playing cards into the night, as well... More

So mixed thoughts on Ketambe. The jungle hiking was a bit disappointing, we only saw 2 orang utans, very high up. It seems you just hike around the same small patch of jungle in circles, whether it's 1, 2 or 3 days, you don't get any deeper in. I did 1 day and made it to the hot springs which... More

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
