ノームがオーストラリアから初めてバリに来たのは80年代半ばのことでした。それから1989年の4回目の訪問で地元のバリ人家族から土地を借り受け、ココナツの木と竹で二階建てのバンガローを建てました。それはノームにとってパラダイスの隠れ家で、年に数カ月、休みをとってバリに来ていました。1992年にはLindaと結婚してSarinbuanaで色彩豊かなバリ式結婚式をあげました。

二人は一緒に、人々が緑豊かな農地とバトゥカル山の美しい熱帯雨林とバリ文化にインスパイアされるような場所を作れないかと考え始めました。それから5年間、彼らはパーマカルチャーのコースを行い、各国から学生を招いて、持続可能なコミュニティーと食物生産についてのしくみを2週間で学べる集中コースを開催していました。

2000年にはさらに大きなゲストハウスを作り、ノームとリンダと二人の男の子たち(Larz とOska)はバリに定住することにしました。それから数年、一家はパラダイスで美しいエコロッジの家を充実させ、お客さんが来て一緒に彼らの体験をシェアできるようにしています。

    See Endangered Orangutans in the Wild

    See Endangered Orangutans in the Wild I can't really explain in words how amazing this trek was...

    Highlights include Dharma and the other guides enthusiasm for pretty much everything (it was obvious they enjoyed being in the rainforest and seeing the wildlife as much as we did).
    Seeing so much wildlife, from the Orangutans and thomas leaf monkeys to the termite tunnels to the quinine trees to the turtles to even the shock of seeing the Palm plantations.
    Swimming in the crystal clear rivers, and camping beside them whilst the guides cooked the fresh fish they'd caught.

    The whole experience was truly something I'll remember for the rest of my life. It's a very special place with some very special people.

    See Endangered Orangutans in the Wild

    See Endangered Orangutans in the Wild Our family all enjoyed the trek. It certainly was the highlight of the whole trip to Indonesia.

    Darma was amazing and he looked after us very very well. His passion and enthusiasm for the rainforest was infectious. It was a wonderful experience for our children (aged 10, 12 & 14 yrs) and us to be on the 'front line' of such a significant environmental location.

    The food on the trek was outstanding. Our over all safety was clearly at the forefront of the guides mind and they were always there if they perceived even a slight danger. Overall, it was possibly the best family holiday we've had (and we've had a few!) so thank you so so much for recommending it to us.

    Orangutan & Elephant Trek with Camping

    Orangutan & Elephant Trek with Camping What a wonderful life changing experience, I took the 5 day trek with 2 girlfriends.

    We camped by the river in the Leuser national park for 2 nights, falling to sleep with the sounds of nature. I woke up early and went for a swim in a water pool when I looked up I saw a wild orangutan looking down at me from the canopy - amazing.

    By motorbike we went to Tangkahan - a great 3 hour road trip through the countryside.
    Then elephant trekking in the rainforest - this is the stuff that Jungle books are made from!

    Darma and the guides are informative and fun to be with, they are truly the keepers of this part of the rainforest - knowing the behaviors of the wonderful creatures within intimately.
