Amazing Trek of 3 days and 2 nights + 1 day with night trekking We are a spanish couple that went to Ketambe twice in the same journey because we really liked the place, the people and the jungle. Jack was our guide in both excursions and we really enjoyed our time with him and learned a lot. First we did the 3 days 2 nights trek with three more people. Another guide called Udin also went with us, and he was a great guide too. We had sooooo much fun altogether!!!!! The places we visited were marvellous, and we saw a wide variety of wildlife: insects, lizards, squirrels, monkeys (punky, macaque, white handed and black gibbon) and many orangutans, even the great king Louie!! The place where we slept was comfortable, they lent us a mosquito net and a mattress. The food was incredible, so many fruits and delicious noodles, currys, sambals, and other different plates. They really made us feel the jungle like home, we didnt want to go back to civilization. That is why two weeks later we went back lo Ketambe, and went into the jungle again. We were running out of time so we could only go one day, and decided to do the night trek too. One of us had a knee injury and Jack was really understanding. He adapted the trek to us, going slowly, and he even made a natural walking stick. We saw orangutans again. Then, the night trek was amazing. The jungle looks so different: the sounds, the animals you see... Jack was really good at spotting animals and we saw a flying lemur, a slow loris, a wildcat and many spiders and other insects. We are really thankful with Jack, who was a key person that contributed in making our journey unforgettable. Thank you Jack, and see you soon!!!

An amazing four days trekking and three nights camping in the jungle. Our team were so lovely. Armada, our guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the animals, plant life and their conservation, very encouraging and really good fun. The best food we have had in Sumatra after a month here was served by our ever smiling chef Basar, two lovely guys. We saw lots of beautiful orangutans, Thomas leaf monkeys, Gibbons, lots of birds, beautiful trees, flowers and mushrooms. Refreshing swims in the river and hot springs.A very well organised, enriching experience that I would definitely recommend and would love to do again.
