THE MOST AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!!!
Jun 2021 • Family
We visited with our kids ages 9 & 4 ... we had the most amazing experience! The trek itself was out of this world and probably the most beautiful place we have ever visited! Our guides gave so much information about the rainforest to us and the children! Also, when our 4 year was tired they carried her :).... Also not forgetting the orang-utans!! These were fantastic!!! The staff at the guesthouse were so welcoming & extremely friendly! The food was amazing!!! ..... we couldn’t have asked for a better experience!! And was so special for the kids to experience too! We HIGHLY recommend Sumatra Orangatan Explore!! ... we shall definitely be revisiting :) :) :)

Eco Friendly Paradise
Jun 2021 • Couples
My boyfriend and I did a two night/ three day trek. I work in wildlife conservation specializing in the rehabilitation of endangered primates. It was extremely important to me to find somewhere ethical. I was absolutely amazed and grateful for how natural, ethical, and respectful they were.

Our guides went above and beyond at every opportunity and truly made it a magical experience. Very kind, funny, laid back, and responsible men. They made us feel safe, comfortable, and above all happy throughout the entire experience.

I cannot recommend them enough. Thank you so much for an amazing time!
It was perfect and so eco friendly and beautiful. We also stayed at the hotel lodge and it was so perfect as well as the restaurant. There isn’t a single thing I would change. Absolutely worth every cent. The food was beyond amazing, the wildlife was stunning, and the kind guides and chef made it even more enjoyable.

An amazing jungle experience
Feb 2021
We had a really great experience with this company. We did the 2 night/3 day trek and loved it. We saw orangutans, thomas langur monkeys, tortoises and turtles, briefly saw some gibbons, it was great. The team do an amazing job of cooking great meals, they are really skilled. It was wonderful, arriving in to camp after a day of walking and jumping straight in to a beautiful river in the middle of the jungle - what an experience. The beds in camp are fine, it's a thin mattress with a blanket so make sure you bring something to act as a pillow. We also used a sarong to cover the mattress as it's got a plastic cover which you stick to a bit. The team are super friendly and knowledgable. We definitely recommend!

Amazing adventure, with absolute legends!
Oct 2019 • Couples
We did the 3 night/4 day trek, it was incredible! Amazing wildlife (not just orangutans!) knowledgeable guides & tasty food (super flexible with my vegan diet haha)
Iman & the team are truly kind people, with the jungle and wildlife in the forefront of everything the company & guest house is becoming!

I would recommend bringing long pants, breathable clothing that drys quickly as everything stays wet in the jungle, long socks (leaches) & good trainers. Also bring your own water bottle! They have a refill station at restaurant.

The only thing I would change is too extend the trek by a night because I wasn’t ready to leave the jungle!

Amazing 1 day trek
Mar 2020
The 1 day trek was absolutely amazing! Our guides were Dani and Raja and they were the best!! They were incredibly knowledgeable about everything in the jungle and were constantly pointing things out to show us. Thanks to their expertise we were able to see many orangutans, more than I could count! They were very respectful of the jungle and all the wildlife - truly an ethical trek. We always maintained a safe distance from the orangutans and the guides were there to protect us when the playful young ones got too close. The trek was about 6-7 hours, we had nasi goreng for lunch and fruit for snacks, and it ended with a fun and refreshing swim and tub ride down the river.

The team at Sumatra Orangutan Explore are the friendliest group of people I have ever met, they treat you like family right away and you feel like you are at home. The food was really good, nice mix of local Indonesian food and French food. The location is really nice looking over the river while you eat. The rooms are nice and comfy.

I would absolutely recommend Sumatra Orangutan Explore to anyone visiting Sumatra! The trek was a life changing experience for me and a must-do when visiting Indonesia; they have other tours as well as trekking so you can stay for a while and have lots of fun things to do. Bukit Lawang is a really cool village to explore. Thank you for the great memories!!

Unforgettable trek, unforgettable people
Mar 2020
We have no words to describe how amazing is this company!!! They are family, friends - group of great people with common passion which is nature!

We can start with website - pretty, easy to navigate - just perfect.

Communication - quick response on WhatsApp, good english, absolutely zero problems!

Accomodation - stylish rooms with fan, private bathroom and comfortable bed. Very good place to stay for at least few days.

Food - to be honest they serve such a good food we didn't want to leave this place. Available vege options which were... wait for it... PERFECT!

Attitude - everybody is extremely helpful, they really care about you! Every single person is happy all the time, smiling to you! It's not possible to be sad in this place.

Music - what we can say... everybody is talented musician. Every evening guys take guitar and other instruments and sing songs. They know every song I suppose.

Trekking - we had 3 days/2 nights trek. We couldn't expect anything better. Our guides Tyson and Raja, they have binoculars instead of eyes. They were able to see monkeys and other animals from several dozen meters. They were not only guides, they became friends! During trek we saw amazing fauna and flora of Sumatra. We will never forget it. The food during trek was amazing. Fresh fruit, jungle lunch and dinners at camps. Every day was something different but always it was delicious! The ethical trekking is really ethical. They really they care of nature. Any single trash wasn't left behind us.

Thanks also to Iman and Marie who helped us a lot.

We are sure we will come back some day to Sumatra and to Bukit Lawang to see you guys!

P.S. I promised the best review ever, hope it is close :D

3 Days / 2 Nights Amazing Jungle Trek
Feb 2020
I did with a friend the 3 days / 2 nights jungle trek and it was absolutely unforgettable. We had a great stay at the guesthouse - it was very clean, the food is delicious and the staff members are very lovely. Our guides, Dani & Nanda were fantastic, they always took care of us, helped us climbing through the jungle, especially when it was raining. They provided us with lots of information about the animals and the plants. The different camps In the jungle were great, the meals, which they prepared were delicious. We had lots of rain, but it was still so worth to walk through the jungle. The best part of course were the orangutans, we have seen around 16 orangutans and lots of other monkeys.

I recommend this company and especially the guides, Dani and Nanda. They are very passionate about it. It was an unforgettable experience - thank you guys! I will definitely come back and do a longer trek.

VIP experience in the Gunung Leuser
Such a unique experience. Truly once in a lifetime. Arranging the trip from Bali to Sumatra was such a breeze with Iman prior to our arrival. The trekk itself was pretty intense but we took plenty of breaks. The guides were so nice and kept us entertained, even when we were out of breath. We saw a giant male and female orangutan within 15 minutes of entering the Gunung Leuser National Park. They even came down to ground level, it was quite scary but the guides kept us in safe distance and reminded us to respect their environment. We saw more orangutans the following day in addition to snakes, reptiles, Thomas leaf monkeys, long tail Macas, pig tail macas and lots of leeches. Hospitality was great, food was good and they even decorated a honeymoon suite in the jungle for us lol! We couldn’t of been more pleased. 10/10 would recommend!
