Nature Lovers Club
GoWild! Indonesia is a non-profit group of volunteers that organises guided trips to places of floral and faunal interest in Indonesia. National parks, forests, conservation sites, and other areas of outstanding natural beauty or species interest are included. Our trips involve gentle strolls, rather than strenuous hikes, and sometimes just sitting in a boat or SUV and watching. They are suitable for all age ranges and families.
We complete 10-12 trips a year ranging from an half day to 10 days duration. We raise an annual trip list in early January then send out each trip itinerary about 4 weeks beforehand.
All attendees and participants in GoWild! events take part entirely at their own risk and this is implicitly understood on an ongoing basis.

What they say…
“On an old clove plantation, just South of Jakarta, we are trying to turn back the tide of deforestation, urban overmigration, and general bad taste that have been pulling down this potentially fantastic country we call Indonesia.
We want to be the Lorax with a bit of market savvy, a place for you to escape, eat well, get your hands in the water and earth we live from. Feel nature, get in it, work with those who have been making your food all these years, thank them, and see the thanks returned that evening, the produce of your labors laid upon the table for all to savor. Or just hang out and enjoy nature, fresh air alone can be a revelation, come try some.
We have a variety of accommodations available for you to choose from, ranging from cuek luxury* teak bungalows, to rice barns with bunk beds that sleep up to four, to traditional campsites, for those who love tents. "

Life on our two tiny paradise islands is simple and good :~) One wouldn’t guess that only two short hours by speedboat from the urban metropolis that is Jakarta, you’d find such a gorgeous and pristine place. Pulau Macan is a true gem - it was that way before we came to steward it, and we have done our best to keep it that way.
Our vision is to make you feel at home within our beautiful environment while introducing you to some of the solutions we’ve applied to make our world a better place. Natural building, intelligent energy, water conservation, waste management, coral conservation, community development, and healthful food and beverages are all part of our intended (and sometimes realized) life here.

"Less than an hour from the Bogor toll exit and less than two from South Jakarta, Vila Botani is perched on the slopes of Mt Salak. It is far from the nearest kampong and borders on a vast forest.
"Far from any crowds, this is THE place to refresh your body and mind. Amid an extraordinary tranquility, lounge on your own deck in a jungle lodge, while listening to birdsong, the croaking frogs and the endless rattle of cicadas. Sit under a waterfall as a stream of chill, crystal water cascades over you. Avoid the Puncak's annoying traffic jams. During 2018 and early 2019 Vila Botani upgraded its accommodations to provide more comfort.
"At the end of a private road, our property of 5.5 ha is ideal for a leisurely stroll. Or - hike or bike in the National Park. Feel free to bring your dog. Vila Botani is pet friendly. "
