Find an orangutan in jungles

Feel yourself like Indiana Jones, because finding this endangered species is not so easy! Be sure – on the way we will find different jungle inhabitants and tropical plants that you have never seen before.

Live with a primitive tribe for a weekend

We will show you the life of the Mentawai tribe, who still preserve the primitive way of life. They will teach us to hunt, to prepare food found in the jungles, to make clothes from the bark of a tree and even more. The shaman will personally show local rituals, and women will show how to weave jewelry.

Conquer a wave or simply relax on the beach

To visit Indonesia and not to stand on the board is simply impossible! We will learn surfing in one of the coolest resorts in the world, enjoy beautiful beaches, discover the beauty of the underwater world and just feel the rhythm of the relaxing island life.

Who we are

Hi! My name is Anastasia. While I have lived in Indonesia, I have conquered volcanos, scaled mountains to look from precipices into the abyss, and trekked across rocky shores to jump into the ocean. I have lived in tiny villages with no electricity, in forests and jungles with wild tribes, and in bustling cities. I hunted, fished, washed elephants in the river, and searched for wild orangutans and Komodo lizards. I have surfed, snorkeled, dived with sharks and manta rays. I sampled local delicacies like larvae, scorpions, and cockroaches. I have visited more than 100 beaches, from pink to black, dozens of waterfalls, caves, and canyons. I was in temples, mosques, and churches to meditate and commune with ancient spirits, including a 10 day reclusion. I have seen the natural wonders of the world from the blue volcanic flame to endangered animal species. I went to university here, worked and volunteered, learned the local language and customs. From bottom to top, from uninhabited islands to overpopulated megacities, from tribes to intelligentsia, from one nationality to another – believe me, I have something to show you. Are you ready to experience the real Indonesia with Gila travels?

Hello! I’m Elena. The number of countries I have visited already exceeds my age. Over the past few years I have learned to pack anything – from swimsuit to ski suit – into my small backpack with fits with the hand luggage. It may sound trivial but I really love to travel. It began with the usual bus tours around Europe and travel agency packages to Egypt. Suddenly, I began to travel more and more – student exchanges and international festivals, the USA and Sri Lanka, alone or with company, on weekends or over two weeks (having to change five flights). I began to find any opportunity to travel even in the absence of time, money, or vacation time. As travel became more frequent, I realized my skills at organizing great routes at the best prices for an increasing group of friends got better and better…and then Indonesia happened. The most exciting, extraordinary, saturated with unreal emotions journey of my life so far. From developed megacities to domesticated monkeys in Bali to wild pigs in the rainforest – this country managed to surprise me. I’m sure it will surprise you too. Let’s go together with Gila travels!

Waiting for the next tour and saving vacation days for travel. Kateryna ZakharovaKateryna Zakharova
When we were looking at Nastya's instagram about her life in Indonesia, we could not imagine that we ourselves would see a piece of this beautiful country, we only visited Bali, but fell in love definitively and irreversibly, every place that showed Nastya worth seeing, considering that it was just "lying on the surface" and I can't even imagine what else this amazing and unique country is hiding, but I'm sure I won't be there yet.

Bali is an unforgettable place! An incredible atmosphere of genesis, spirituality and inner harmony. I've been in the other paradise islands, but it's not like that! In Bali land encouraging and above all else I have been lucky to visit the mainland, to feel the culture of Indonesia and meet real Javanese! Such impressions need to be tested at least once in a lifetime, everyone advise! Anna NazarenkoAnna Nazarenko
