Jahoo Gibbon Camp is a responsible community-based ecotourism and conservation project in Keo Seima Wildlife Sanctuary, where visitors have the chance to see yellow-cheeked crested gibbons and black-shanked douc langurs, as well as rare bird species. The community is composed mainly of Bunong indigenous people, who have traditionally lived in a close relationship with the forest, but who have limited access to means of income, education, and healthcare. Jahoo Gibbon Camp seeks to address this by providing a sustainable way for the community to earn an income through their forest resources. Our understanding is that this site is not accessible without a tour operator.

"The Elephant Valley Project is a bit of an abstract experience, you walk off into the elephant’s natural habitat and watch them being elephants. There is no riding, no tricks, no shows, just elephants being elephants in their own natural space. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of that?" (Jack Highwood - Founder of EVP)
