Summary

South East Asia Community Impact

Learning about the region's recent history will fill you with even more respect for the communities that you will live and work alongside. Each of the 6 camps you will call home are located alongside a local community. We listen to the needs of each community, so that you can work on projects that make a tangible and lasting difference to them.

Head out into the dense jungle for a night trek with our knowledgeable local guides before jumping into your hammock for a night in the jungle. Enjoy beach BBQs and explore the vibrant town of Kota Kinabalu at the weekends. Of course a trip to Borneo wouldn't be complete without getting to observe the island's most famous primate, the orangutan. We'll take you to Sepilok Sanctuary where you can get up close to these amazing creatures and support the vital work of the sanctuary.

In Cambodia meander around the world famous and simply mind blowing temples of Angkor Wat. Soak up the culture at the local circus (no animals involved) and test out your bartering skills in the bustling night markets.  Relax and unwind on Siem Reap's famous 'pub street'. Sample delicious local delicacies and even try some fried tarantula if you're brave enough!

Become a true global citizen, immerse yourself in new cultures and make a measurable impact in the process.
