Reviews for Indonesia wildlife vacation, primates and dragons


review 14 May 2018

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

All the vacation was memorable but for me: going into the rainforest and seeing truly wild orangutans and a family of foraging Thomas Leaf Monkeys close up without a care of being watched. Snorkelling in the Komodo National Park and seeing so many beautiful fish and colourful corals. Walking on Komodo and Rinca and have a fairly large 'dragon' purposefully stride towards us.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Take plenty of insect repellant and lightweight clothes. When in Sumatra make sure you are really fit before doing the one day trek as it is more than challenging as very steep ravine to climb up in high humidity. Just relax and enjoy it.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes. Our group spent quite a lot of money on services such as massages and facials which were performed by locals. The guides at each destination were always local and numerous and the hotels were well staffed so employment levels were good. As a group we were always picking up plastic bottles and bags from the beach and collected a few whilst snorkelling. Drinking water was always available to refill bottles so no need for extra plastic.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

It was a great vacation, very active with only 2 full days for relaxation. The itinerary was well planned but most of the group thought an extra day in Flores would have been better than a full day to ourselves in Obud.
