Following quite some requests, I have decided to start organizing tours to some of my favorite destinations. Organizing and guiding tours and expeditions with a focus on nature and indigenous tribes used to be my job, for 6 years! I love sharing unique experiences to off-the-beaten-track destinations and am now getting back into this.
Tours focus on nature, wildlife and indigenous culture and are organized for those that want to enjoy just that, as well as for photographers. I can also organize private or custom trips to pretty much anywhere in Indonesia or for instance some of my favorite destinations in Africa, just reach out!

Come with us on a once-in-a-lifetime Siberut Island Mentawai culture and photography tour. Visit the Mentawai tribe on Siberut, to immerse in their traditional culture, believes and rituals. It will be an unforgettable trip, to the heart and soul of the island.
We will travel by canoe upriver deep into the interior of Siberut, to stay with the still traditional indigenous Mentawai people. Some of the Mentawai still live in large traditional long-houses, called Uma, which are spread out in river valleys deep in Siberut’s protected rainforest.
