“A good start for your first time in the jungle!”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

JungleWalla has a website offering several trips to the jungle and mangroves. As it was one of the recommendations on TripAdvisor we were looking for some sportive hike through the jungle and chose the jungle trekking with the “medicine men” that you can book online. We were fetched from our hotel and taken to a parking lot (taxi trip lasting about 45 minutes) from where you could reach a small trail. The trail itself was short and it only took one and a half hour including explanation until it was finished. The guide told us some interesting facts about the plants and insects we saw. Getting back to the car we drove for about 5 minutes and stopped again at a parking lot from where we took a ten minute hike to a small waterfall and pond to take a bath in. The place was really beautiful and the water refreshing. After about 45 minutes we went back to the car and were driven back to our hotel. Alltogether the trip was informative but too short. We guessed it was because we booked off-season and didn’t call in advance before booking online. I recommend you call the agency first before booking. Probably the excursions are so pricey because of the long taxi service which is included. The trip is perfect for those who only want to have a short insight into the jungle and see if they like it. Everything is well organized. After the trip you feel safe and informed for taking another longer trip. I recommend the jungle trail behind the Telagah Tuju Falls. Or ask your guide about the long trip, they seem to offer full-day trips during dry season.

“Amazing walks and tour”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

We took the morning and evening walk from the Andaman as well as the mangrove tour and loved each of them. We saw some amazing animals, birds and plants and saw the dedication that JungleWalla have in ensuring that the rainforest and mangroves remain as they are for future generations to enjoy. It was very sad to see other tour companies in the mangroves upsetting the natural balance of the mangroves by feeding animals and birds with food that is so detrimental to their wellbeing.
I would like to make a special mention to our guide on the morning walk and mangrove tour, Shakira. Her passion for the rainforest and mangroves is amazing and she made these two tours especially wonderful for us....thanks Shakira.
If you are visiting Langkawi and are taking a tour, please make sure that you do the right thing by the natural habitat and go with a group such as JungleWalla that want to keep this amazing Island as beautiful and natural as can be.

We went with Junglewalla on the mangrove tour and were amazed by the natural history of this part of Langkawi. Such a beautiful area, and got so much information and knowledge from our amazing guide Daia.
Absolutely recommendable!!!

“A great way to learn so much about Langkawi's natural history.”
Reviewed May 6, 2014 via mobile

We spent a lovely morning driving up through the forest in search of hornbills and walking through the greenery near the airport spotting birds and learning about the uses of local plants. Sri was our knowledgeable guide. I thoroughly recommend a trip with this company and by supporting them maybe it can be shown that tourists value nature, not just jet skis and banana boats!!

“Morning walk”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

We loved our early morning walk taken from The Datai, Langkawi, and led by the enthusiastic Sri. She brought the land to life by using stories of her own encounters with some of the more ferocious inhabitants of the rainforest as well as the benign creatures and plants. We learned so much and the walk was one of the highlights of our stay.
