By staying in the jungle for three days and two nights you not only increase your chances of seeing orangutans and famous monkey species, but might also encounter other exotic animals, such as tropical snakes and spiders. If you are lucky you might even spot a bear or stumble upon the footprints of a tiger or elephant. These are definitely the moments that will get your heart racing and your adrenaline pumping.
On the first day you will trek through the jungle for around 6-7 hours and enjoy two local Indonesian dishes, as well as some fresh local fruit. In the evening you can warm up by the bonfire, play some fun games and eventually doze off to the sounds of the rainforest. After a good night’s sleep in a tent, located on a very secluded campsite deep in the jungle, you will continue the journey, discovering more monkeys, orangutans and the diverse flora and fauna the rainforest has to offer. The new camp is situated by the river and close to a waterfall, where you can take pleasure in an invigorating “jungle massage”, get a natural face paint with different-colored rocks and enjoy some Indonesian specialties for dinner.
On the last day, after a Western-style breakfast with a variety of fruits, you will still have some time to jump into the water and discover your surroundings before you make your way back to the guest house by rafting down the river, which is always a ton of fun!
