Day 1: Arrival

Make your own way to Merapoh bus station where you'll be met by an Ecoteer coordinator. Then you'll transfer to your shared accommodation in the small town of Merapoh before being briefed on how to locate and deactivate snares, how to collect data and how to distinguish animal tracks. You'll need all this for your next few days in the rainforest.

Day 2 - 3: Jungle walks

Time to practise your best Tarzan impression as today you'll head into the depths of the Malaysian jungle in hope of seeing elephants, leopards, civets and tigers. You'll keep your eyes open for poaching traps and animal tracks, recording data and acting as an active deterrent to poachers. Jungle walks are commonly 5-7 hours long and are incredibly humid so be prepared!

Day 4: Limestone caves

Time to go underground and explore the jungle's ancient limestone caves, some with rivers, paintings and waterfalls inside. Then in the afternoon you'll prepare a conversational English lesson ready for the session tomorrow.

Day 5: Batek Village

Visit a traditional Batek village to learn about their culture and share your English language skills with groups of young adults.

Day 6: Jungle Walk

Back into the jungle for an unforgettable overnight camp with the Batek people.

Day 7: Merapoh

Hike back to Merapoh for a relaxing afternoon with your team.

Day 8: Departure

Bid farewell to the jungle and your jungle brothers (and sisters) as you get on a bus back to the bright lights of Kuala Lumpur.
