Welcome to Red Ape Encounters, an ethical wildlife experience that aims to promote conservation efforts for the critically endangered orangutan in Borneo. We are a team of passionate individuals who are dedicated to educating and inspiring others to protect these magnificent creatures and their habitat.
Our mission at Red Ape Encounters is to create a positive impact on the environment and the communities around us. We strive to provide an immersive, educational, and responsible wildlife experience to our guests while promoting the conservation of the orangutan and their rainforest home. We believe that responsible ecotourism can be a powerful tool for conservation, and we are committed to contributing to the protection of these incredible animals and their environment.
Red Ape Encounters was founded in 2016 by a group of local conservationists who saw the need for sustainable tourism practices that could benefit both the orangutan and the communities living near their habitats. Our team has a wealth of knowledge and expertise in wildlife conservation and ecotourism, and we work closely with local communities to ensure that our activities have a positive impact on the environment and the people who depend on it.
Our flagship program is the Orangutan Encounter, a unique wildlife experience that allows guests to observe and learn about these intelligent primates in their natural habitat. Our Encounters are designed to provide a safe and respectful experience for both the orangutan and our guests. We adhere to strict ethical guidelines to ensure that our interactions with the orangutan are non-invasive and do not disrupt their natural behavior.
During the Orangutan Encounter, guests will have the opportunity to hike through the lush rainforest, accompanied by our experienced guides who will share their knowledge and expertise about the flora and fauna of Borneo. Guests will learn about the orangutan’s natural history, behavior, and habitat, and will observe them as they forage for food, play, and interact with each other.
In addition to our Orangutan Encounter, we also offer a range of other ecotourism activities, including river cruises, birdwatching tours, and visits to local communities to learn about their way of life and traditional culture. All of our activities are designed to provide a meaningful and authentic experience that supports the conservation of the orangutan and their habitat.
At Red Ape Encounters, we are committed to responsible and sustainable tourism practices. We work closely with local communities to ensure that our activities have a positive impact on the environment and the people who depend on it. We also use eco-friendly practices in our operations, including recycling, reducing waste, and using renewable energy sources.
Our team is composed of passionate individuals who are dedicated to promoting conservation efforts for the orangutan and their habitat. We are committed to educating and inspiring others to take action to protect these incredible animals and the environment in which they live.
We also believe that responsible tourism can be a powerful tool for promoting sustainable development and supporting local communities. Through our activities, we aim to provide economic benefits to local communities, creating jobs and opportunities that support their livelihoods while promoting environmental conservation.
At Red Ape Encounters, we are committed to providing our guests with a truly unforgettable experience that promotes ethical and responsible wildlife tourism. We invite you to join us on an adventure in Borneo and to be a part of the solution for the conservation of the orangutan and their habitat.
