Overview

Our 6 Day Sumatra Adventure will take you to the 1 million hectare Gunung Leuser National Park on the island of Sumatra. The park houses the largest population of Sumatran Orangutans, approximately 80% of the entire wild population of 7000. Gunung Leuser is also home to an enormous population of other wildlife including the Thomas Leaf Monkey, Pigtail Macaque, Longtail Macaque, Gibbons, Lizards, Turtles, Hornbills and more. 

Your home on this trip will be a mix of both basic guest houses, hotels and tents. You will be escorted from one destination to the next by our experienced local guide. 

This expedition will help us save the environment of the critically endangered Sumatran Orangutan. Illegal Logging and encroachment of large scale mono crops such as Rubber and Palm Plantations, seriously threaten this wonderful habitat. Your expedition fee will adopt an Orangutan through the Australian Orangutan Project (AOP) and also protect 100 hectares of jungle from illegal logging through the Safe Guard Program.
