Meet the orangutans of Sumatra
Experience the wildlife of Sumatra ethically with a trek deep into the untamed Sumatran jungle and spend a starry night in a remote jungle lodge on the edge of the rainforest. Hike into the heart of the jungle, wobble across wooden bridges and scramble between the trees, eventually arriving at the optimum spot to witness semi-wild orangutans, if you’re lucky.
Snorkel with sea turtles on a paradise island
Find your own slice of paradise, circled by twinkling turquoise waters and coral reefs just metres from the shore. The white sandy islands of the Gilis are perfect for a snorkelling adventure. Simply grab your kit and wade out into the clear waters to explore a mind-bogglingly colourful and diverse marine world. Swim with families of sea turtles, float through coral canyons and find yourself surrounded by flitting rainbow fish. Bliss.
Delve into the land of the komodo dragon
Staying in Flores you’ll head off on a boat trip to explore the neighbouring mysterious islands of Komodo and Rinca, overrun by huge Komodo dragons. The largest reptile on earth, Komodos grow up to a mammoth three metres long and weigh as much as 100kg! It’s something that’s bound to bolt your eyes wide open. Head out in search of the dragon on a foot tour with our local ranger who will help you easily spot these giant lizards.
