  • Tours led by experts from the Orangutan Foundation UK, providing a privileged insight into primate and tropical forest conservation.

  • Experience the beautiful rainforests as you journey by boat along the Sekonyer River. Spot wild orangutans, proboscis monkeys, hornbills, kingfishers and monitor lizards.

  • Visit the vital ongoing conservation and sustainable livelihood projects that these tours help to fund.

One of last year's participants said the highlight was "seeing so many orangutans and having such a knowledgeable and fantastic guide (Ashley Leiman)...One of the all-time best. At least FIVE stars!!!"
