Spending 6 days in the jungle was not easy, but I didn't expect it to be :) it more than made up for it with the experience of seeing Orangutans as well as other monkeys. The guides were excellent people and our guide Selamat is someone I still consider a friend. The town of Bukit Lawang is so beautiful and well worth a visit.

Thank ojodi

This was the most amazing trip, the people were so friendly and helpful, I fell in love with them!! Bukit Lawang is a beautiful beautiful place away from everything and the trek was awesome, it was at times quite hard but so worth it. the guides had so much knowledge and nothing was to much trouble. They were also very funny kept us entertained constantly. . The food every day was incredible. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes adventure,

I went on the 6 day jungle trek and have nothing but good things to say about the experience.

there were 4 solo traveling girls in the group and after a long day of trekking we'd be treated like princesses at camp. The crew were amazing making every meal an experience (gathering large leaves to make an outdoor restaurant etc) and cooking phenomenal food. we had a vegetarian, vegan and 2 others in our group and we were all fed well.

the trekking was slightly difficult at times but the guide made sure everyone could keep up with the pace and that there were regular breaks. The crew helped us in sticky situations (like crossing a rapid river) and I always felt well looked after.

despite the crew being incredibly hard working they all had a great sense of humour and made it an enjoyable experience.

the jungle life was one of the best experiences I've had and I only wish it was longer!

i will be back soon :)

We just got back from a long weekend break organised by expedition jungle and it was fantastic. We flew in to Medan on Thursday evening and everything was arranged up until we left on Sunday evening. We started our two day jungle trek on Friday morning with our guide Salamat. Salamat was very informative about the animals and vegetation and had a great sense of humour. Within an hour of being in the jungle we saw a flash of orange ahead, which was an Orang Utan and her baby. It was brilliant experience to see Orang Utans in the wild. The camp for the night was basic (it's the jungle!) but the food was excellent, and the crew were good company, playing games and laughing until bed. The next morning we walked to a nearby waterfall where we swam in the pool below and enjoyed a natural waterfall massage, before river tubing back to Bukit Lawang.

Since getting back I've been recommending this trip to anyone who will listen, it was a great experience and it was one of the few times we've been away and been able to disengage so thoroughly from work.
