From the rare primates of Tangkoko National Park to the dazzling marine life of the Lembeh Strait, Indonesia’s reefs and rainforests provide the backdrop to an astonishing diversity of wildlife.

Imagine a marine park with natural sponges, white sand beaches and crystal clear waters teeming with over 70 different species of coral and more than 2,500 types of fish. You’re thinking of Bunaken National Marine Park surrounding Siladen Island – just one of the natural wonders featured on this action-packed tour of Indonesia.

You’ll also trek through the lowland rainforest of Tangkoko National Park to see indigenous wildlife like the crested black macaque and tiny spectral tarsier. After a night in Bali, you’ll fly to Wakatobi in south-eastern Sulawesi where you’ll have exclusive access to miles of pristine reefs that support some of the highest levels of marine biodiversity on the planet.

London - Singapore - Manado

Arrive in Singapore and meet your connecting flight to Manado in Indonesia. Once there, a car and boat will take you to your accommodation on Siladen Island. You’ll have ample opportunity to laze on a pure white beach and indulge in the luxurious amenities of your hotel.

 

You’ll also find yourself at the heart of Bunaken National Marine Park, a true paradise for snorkelers and divers. Whether you’re interested in corals, fish, echinoderms or sponges – or all marine creatures – Bunaken supports a truly bewildering, colourful display. When you’re not exploring life beneath the waves you can enjoy sunset cruises, rafting and trekking excursions.

 

Stay: Four nights in a garden view room at Siladen Resort – full board

Lembeh

On day six you’ll journey by boat and car over to your resort on Lembeh Island. From here you’ll be able to explore the magnificent Lembeh Strait of northeast Sulawesi, recognised around the world for its crystal-clear waters and diversity of marine life. Expect exceptional critter and muck diving, as well as unrivalled opportunities for underwater photography.

 

The land holds treasures too. Take an excursion to the lush Tangkoko National Park to see the world’s smallest primate, the spectral tarsier, and the equally rare crested black macaque. Much easier to see on your safari will be black crested macaques, hornbills, kus kus and maleo birds, as well as a huge variety of indigenous plants and trees.

 

Those interested in the local culture can take trips to the Minahasa Highlands to tour through towns like Tomohon, with its charming markets, and Wolan Village; a centre of traditional pottery production. The countryside around Lake Linow and Tondano is beautiful, and home to a large variety of birds. Ancient stone graves and a megalithic stone, a local museum and a batik factory tour complete your insight into the history and modern-day culture of the region.

There are over 50 mapped dive sites within easy reach of the resort where you can swim alongside and photograph a myriad of colourful reef fish and unusual critters.
