On the drive to Tangkahan, you will visit local markets and be greeted by the hospitable Karonese people, well-known for chewing betel nut, their regal dancing, and large marriage ceremonies. Tangkahan is an inspiring example of community-based ecotourism, where former illegal loggers are gaining their livelihoods from the beauty of the forest.

Over the next few days, you will watch and participate in the orphan elephants bathing and socialising. You will have the OPTIONAL (added extra cost - please enquire) river- tube to Buluh River where you will enjoy picnic lunches followed by swimming in waterfalls and hot springs. At Bukit Lawang, you will experience a whole different landscape as you trek through the jungle to view the orangutans in their natural habitat. These magnificent creatures are critically endangered, with approximately 6000 of them in the wild.

“Fullfilling, memorable and rewarding.”

The opportunity to find orang-utans in their natural environment, interact with elephants, spend time with local villagers and especially to experience all this with my grandchildren, was fulfilling, memorable and rewarding. The attention to detail, the friendliness, respect and enthusiasm displayed by all at RAW Wildlife Encounters ensured that this was so. Thank you.
