People of the Forest

Borneo: 4 Days / 3 Nights with Orangutans

Borneo is a place of superlatives.

Split between three countries, it is the third largest island in the world, houses one of the largest rainforests on earth, and is one of the only destinations where Orangutans can be found.

Stemming from the Malay and Indonesian languages, orang (person) hutan (forest) quite literally means “person of the forest”. Being one of the world’s most intelligent primates, this name is aptly applied. Spend 4 days in search of the critically endangered Orangutan combining tranquil Klotok (traditional boats) and canoe rides, tropical wildlife trekking, and visits to nearby villages.

An Albanian Incentive Adventure

Towards the middle of 2016, we were approached by a group of friends and family with a request for a fully customized, comprehensive incentive trip to Albania. As no task is too great or small for the Voyale team, we gladly took up the challenge.

21 persons, 9 well-appointed hotels, English-speaking guides, a comprehensive meal plan (including “tastes of home”), international transport, and more. The trip concluded at the beginning of January and was deemed a complete success by all!
