The trip was amazing, we saw so many animals and the guides are really nice. Everything was well organized by Jungle Edie, we really enjoyed the hiking... More

i had the pleasure of meeting Jungle Edie in Bukit Lawang! He is a man of all knowledge and a great pleasure to meet. We had evenings of talking about jungle trekking, jungle life and listening to the jungle sound. I also volunteered in the English school he has set up and it was an absolute delight to be able...

Jungle Edie is an amazing young man with alot of knowledge. He does so much for his community. I had the pleasure of meeting him at the Selang Pengeran school house. We helped with building a bridge across the river as the previous bridge had been washed away in a flood. If your ever in this part of the jungle... More

Great food prepared by Randy while we were trekking. 2 days drinking from the river (boiled) without getting sick. Get used to the heat before going... More

I had a great experience with Jungle Edie. What is even better is that he runs the tours so that he can earn money to support the jungle school, a place where children from the local villages can learn English.

I went with Jungle Edie on a 3 days, 2 nights jungle trek. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life! Edie picked me up from the bus station in Bukit Lawang and organised a stay at a hotel before the jungle trek, which made it very easy for me. The day after the trek started. I... More

Me & my girlfriend booked a 2Day1Night-Trek with Jungle Edie (200€, all incl & accomodation in Bukit Lawang). The trek was amazing & Jungle Edie and his friends are great guys - the other reviews show this pretty well. Best thing was that we could decide to extend our trek by one additional night (+40€) while already on the trek!... More

We chose jungle Edie because of his many good reviews as a private guide. It was definitely not a wrong choice!!! We had an amazing trip with him. He was very understanding to the fact that we had a small budget (as we were backpacking). Also, animal welfare is very important to my girlfriend, and it seems that it is... More
