Overview

Ketambe is the best place in Indonesia to start a jungle trekking and spot orangutans and other wildlife, like gibbons, thomas leaf monkeys, long-tailed macaques, wild pigs and hornbills. We are working together with Pondok Wisata Guesthouse and we are only working together with local guides, born and grown up in Ketambe. By working together with local guides we stimulate local income and support the families here in the village. Our team of guides can explain you everything about the area around Ketambe, they have a real passion for the jungle and a lot of experience.
