Stop deforestation by empowering the local rural indigenous population by way of job creation based on tourism & support local People.
We follow a strict code of non-contact with the orang-outans. Getting too close to an orangutan increases the risk of passing on disease and viral infection, which jeopardises the semi wild orangutans' chances of survival and in turn the health and survival of the wild orangutan population in this area. We ask our guests to keep at least 10 metres away and to move away if an orang-outan approaches.
