On this 10 day wildlife tour you have the opportunity to get up close and personal with many amazing species such as Orangutans, Proboscis Monkeys, Sun Bears, Pygmy Elephants, Tropical Birds and many more exciting creatures.

At dark, thousands of fireflies come out to play, lighting up the night sky like a million stars. It is such an incredible sight!
