WHO ARE WE?
Our mission is to incite your epic adventure, while supporting conservation and communities in the wilds of Sumatra.
Since 2010, Wild Sumatra has been helping responsible travelers discover the most remote wild places left on the mysterious, mountainous, rainforest-shrouded island of Sumatra. We work with rural communities to support local guides, helping connect them with off-the-beaten path adventurers looking for authentic, bespoke, small-group trekking and cultural experiences in the rainforests of Indonesia’s Kerinci Seblat National Park and surrounding villages. As a social enterprise against tourism leakage, we are committed to keeping all funds spent within the Kerinci region.
We believe strongly that community-based ecotourism can help safeguard the still-untouched forests and wildlife of Sumatra, while helping to improve the quality of life for people living on the forest edge.
We’re proud that 100% of our profit goes directly to WildCats Conservation Alliance in support of wild tiger conservation in the Kerinci Seblat National Park, and to other local grassroots conservation and community development initiatives here in Kerinci. After all, healthy communities and a healthy tiger population means a healthy forest.
