I’ve been reading up about SE Asia/Laos i’m really curious about the Gibbon experience, It seems to be incredibly expensive for what it is (and where it is….)
I have no problem paying the amount, just hoping it goes to the project and not profiteering!
Any experiences would be grateful, i’ve been reading that they’re particularily hard to get hold of directly!
Hi, i’ve also been looking up the gibbon experience and definitely want to do it, but im massively scared of heights haha whats the prices like as i havent really found any???
Also would be good to hear from people who have actually done it!!
I’minterested in doing this…however i’ve read a lot of bad reviews. I know not everyone is going to like it…but it was more, considering the amount of money these people had paid to do it, they didn’t feel they got their moneys worth.
But other people had also said, it’s not a luxury experience, and it’s not meant to be, so go in expecting it to be a bit rough and dirty and you’ll enjoy it.
oh and to go with friends!
I’d stil like to do it, but for maybe less money as I’d rather learn to scuba and dive with sharks!
I went on the Gibbon Experience a couple fo years ago and loved it! I think it cost me £95 when I did it, not sure how much it is now. I have no idea how much of the money you pay to do it goes on helping protect theforest though. It wasn’t the most luxurious of experiences - we were kept awake at night by the rats running around the tree house but I wasn’t expecting it to be. The food was basic but tasty and the beds were comfy enough, comfier than a lot of places I stayed in south east asia! The guides took us out to try and find Gibbons in the morning and on other other forest walks during the day. We didn’t see gibbons on the walks but did see them one morning from our tree house which was fantastic. The zip lines were great fun and you get amazing views over the Bokeo forest.
If you are expecting luxury accommodation/food etc I wouldn’t recommend it! I absolutely loved sleeping in a tree house in the middle of the forest miles away from anywhere and being able to just jump onto a zip wire through the forest whenever you felt like it. It was one of the most memorable parts of my time in south east asia.
