It was great to explore the wildlife of Leuser Nationalpark. We highly recommand doing this tour with Marwan who is a super positive and experienced guide with a great heart and humour.

Marwan was really passionate about the jungle and the animals. We had great fun walking through the jungle together. In the evening, after the most delicious dinner, we would sing and speak sidiki bahasa indonesia.
