Join the Orangutan Jungle Trek and assist Variety – the Children’s Charity in providing vital equipment and services to empower Aussie kids who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs to live life to the fullest.
Challenge yourself as you trek the Sumatran jungle—one of the world’s last remaining tropical rainforests—bearing witness to the extraordinary plethora of life it supports. By day, witness orangutans feeding and learn the secrets of jungle survival. At night, camp under the stars, lulled to sleep by the eerie sounds of the jungle.
After your trek, spend time with a bunch of new friends in the city of Bukit Lewang, as well as assisting with a special community project. Here, we have the unique opportunity help a local community in need, as well as meet some of the local school children.
• Trek through Sumatra’s last remaining tropical rainforest and experience firsthand orangutans feeding in Gunung Leuser National Park
• Learn the secret medicinal properties of the jungle, gather edible plants and learn traditional fishing techniques
• Make your way through dense, enveloping jungle and take a relaxing tube ride down the river to Bukit Lawang
• Make friends with local school children, take part in a special community project and know that your fundraising efforts are making a difference to the lives children in need across Australia through Variety.
