Sumatra Jungle Challenge

An astounding array of plants and wildlife in the orangutans’ rainforest home

This unique trip includes trekking and camping in the orangutans’ rainforest home, tracking wildlife, meeting local people, tubing down the Bohorok river, swimming in hot springs, and a highlight visit to the Gunung Leuser National Park’s orangutan feeding platform where you will be able to see these beautiful creatures swing through the trees.

The Sumatran Orangutan Society (SOS) is dedicated to the conservation of Sumatran orangutans and their forest home. Their UK and international branches raise awareness of the threats facing wild orangutans, and raise funds to support grassroots conservation projects in Sumatra. Together with a team of committed Indonesian conservationists, SOS works with local communities living alongside the last remaining orangutan habitat. They plant trees to restore damaged ecosystems, and provide training to help the local people work towards a more sustainable future for their forests.

Your challenge takes place in the Gunung Leuser National Park, one of the only places in the world where you can still see the Sumatran orangutan in the wild. They share these forests with a whole host of other wildlife; gibbons, elephants, hornbills, Thomas leaf monkeys, macaques, sunbears and the elusive Sumatran tiger are just a handful of the thousands of animal and plant species found in this unique World Heritage ecosystem.  The park takes its name from the 3,404m Mount Leuser.

Throughout your trek you will learn to spot an astounding array of plants and wildlife and hone many rainforest skills. Sumatra’s forests are a last refuge for many of the world’s most endangered species. This trek is designed to make you feel at home in their world
