THE PEOPLE FROM SETULANG VILLAGE ARE ONE OF THE FRIENDLIEST PEOPLE I HAVE MET SO FAR.DAVID METCALF

“If you are looking for a real adventure in the Borneo jungle you should consider a trip to Setulang, North Kalimantan.”

“The idea of bringing visitors to the village is to bring support to the community that has been genuinely fighting to protect their lands and forests from the expansion of palm oil plantations or logging industries. With eco-tourism we are hoping that this can be seen as a model for other communities and show that tourism can bring extra income. This helps them to preserve their lands and not having to bow down to the companies unsustainably taking from the forests.”

This is a budget trip and if you are called to venture into the wild.
To experience the Dayak culture and forest environment in a genuine cultural exchange.
Then this trip is for you!


We are happy to have you on board in supporting this tourism initiative.
Everything is fully guided by an English speaking local guide.

Conscious travel is often described as being ‘deep’ travel – getting under the skin of a place. It sits alongside terms such as eco-travel and responsible tourism.DAVID METCALF
In simple terms, it is entering as a guest, being respectful of your hosts, leaving the place either the same or better than it was before and learning from each other.

SOCIAL IMPACT IS IMPORTANT

This tour is a great example of conscious travel:
Your visit will directly benefit the village.

Your money goes into a fund to be used for maintenance of the Jungle Camp Tane Olen,
so it can continue bringing a positive change to the region as well as education through environmental books.

To live with the Kenyah Dayaks is a unique opportunity and they love to receive guests.
The cultural exchange is as interesting for them, as it is for you.

This will be an experience never to forget!

This project is non-profit and its purpose is to preserve and enhance the Dayak culture.
It is an eco-tourism initiative run by the local community of Setulang.
David and Aini have been working with them the past few years with several visits to the jungle,
including an expedition to Long Sa’an to bring the elders back to their original village
(documented in David Metcalf’s and Erick Est’s movie “Long Sa’an – The Journey Back”).
