We are a partnership based in North Wales, UK, and in Kumai, Kalimantan, Indonesia. Having a base in both countries allows us to personally assist you here with all the planning of your tour, and ensures that once you are in Borneo, we guarantee you will be equally as well looked after.
The North Wales team is ran by Hannah and Sabrun. Hannah volunteered in Tanjung Puting National Park for 6 weeks, and Sabrun has 8 years experience of working as an assistant at Camp Leakey. Hannah has a degree in Plant Science from the University of Liverpool, and a great interest in tropical wildlife and plant life.
The Kalimantan side of the team is ran by Sabrun’s brother Sabrie, and his wife Ani, and Sabrun’s sister Julaiha and her daughter Rika. Sabrie has 10 years experience of working at Camp Leakey, and another 3 years experience of working as a guide in Tanjung Puting National Park. Ani, Julaiha and Rika have great organisation skills, and are in charge of making sure everyone knows what’s going on and when, making sure the food and drink supplies are ready for each tour, and that tours are arranged to run smoothly.
Sabrie is a fully registered guide at the park, having gained a guiding certificate in a Balinese University in 2009. He is a father to his 3 children. He works with a network of registered guides in Kumai, including Mrs Desy, Miss Nina, Mr Ba’in, Mr Mawardi and others, all who have experience guiding tourists around the National Park, and all of whom speak at least a basic level of English.
Sabrie’s family, and Julaiha’s family are passionate about the plight of the orangutans. Sabrie has developed excellent observation skills throughout his time spent researching orangutans, Proboscis monkeys and other flora and fauna while working in the park. Sabrie is very knowledgeable about where best to visit for bird watching, photography, Proboscis monkey viewing, and the like, and knows many tree and plant names of flora found within the park. Sabrie, Ani, Julaiha and Rika go out of their way to ensure trips are very memorable, and are recommended by all guests.
