Orangutan Odysseys combines adventure and educational tours in Indonesia and parts of Malaysia to support conservation efforts for the survival of orangutans and the protection of their habitat. Tourism is urgently needed to bring awareness and resources to these regions. Our mission is to provide unforgettable real‑life experiences while supporting local nonprofits engaged in keeping orangutans and their habitat safe.
It is our vision that responsible tourism to Sumatra and Borneo raises awareness about the loss of habitat and other factors endangering orangutans. The entire ecosystem needs to be protected, and through our tours we continue to raise much-needed funds to support local conservation efforts and provide pockets of hope for the environment and the community.
It is our goal to protect the orangutan habit through environmental sustainability and responsible tourism. Our passion lies in the primary forests of the world, which are a vital part of the global ecosystem.
