“Can't speak highly enough about RAW !”
We were a group of 7 aging from 18 to 60. We were thoroughly entertained and extremely well looked after for our entire trip.We were completely immersed in the cultural exchange, enjoying delicious food, amazing wildlife spotted by hard working & experienced guides, and relaxed opportunities to enjoy amazing waterfalls, rivers and rainforest. Can't speak highly enough about RAW !
“Seeing wildlife in the wild was amazing...”
Very hard to just give one highlight! but seeing wildlife in the wild (e.g. orangutans, gibbons, monkeys) was amazing as were the guides and assistants. loved being in the rainforest, on and in the river, visiting the various projects. Attention, care and assistance of guides fantastic.

“Can't wait till I go again”
Once again RAW provided the most exciting, fun filled trip, nothing was too much trouble, everything well organised, very informative so much fun! I can't just highlight 1 thing - every day was another adventure. Can't wait till I go again!!"
“Best tours I have ever been on!!”
As I mentioned before this was one of the best tours I have ever been on from the way it was organised from home to how we were dealt with in Indonesia. Every day was a highlight from seeing the work being conducted in saving the orangutans and listening to Ian and Jen speak with such passion. To being able to see the semi-wild released animals in Bukit Lawang, and finally to be in such a beautiful place as Tangkahan! To actually trek through this ecosystem that you know is full of different species and then be lucky enough to witness such a small number of them was really special. The boys that came with us and helped along the way really did make this trip so much fun...their humour, knowledge, smiles , singing and laughter...not to mention being treated like princesses for most of the trip was fantastic....and then to do the rafting and hot pools and waterfalls and elephant washing....it just didn't end and every day got better and better!!! I was truly sad to see this trip end...and plan to hopefully go back again one day

“Our private tour of Sri Lanka was amazing!”
Our private tour of Sri Lanka was amazing. We not only visited many temple sites and ruins of significant historical interest and value with fantastic guides who were passionate about their country but we saw so many birds and so much wildlife on the many lagoons and lakes of Sri Lanka. With that we learnt about the history of the country and the on going political struggle since the war. The guides in the national parks (Indika, Aaron, Jarome )were passionate and very informative as well as being great hosts in their care of us. It was an amazing trip. Thankyou to Raw Wildlife Encounters and Jess.

“The trip met the expectations of both myself and my 20 year old son”
My 20 year old son and myself had an adventure to remember forever. We travelled to Northern Sumatra to experience the elephants in Tangkahan and the Orangutan's in Bukit Lawang. The Jungle experience was amazing. The preparation of the guides and cooking staff was sensational. We witnessed seeing at least 10 wild orang-utans in the jungle of Bukit Lawang.....definitely the highlight......I would do it again in a heartbeat. The trip met the expectations of both myself and my 20 year old son. We both had the best possible experience. Thankyou!
