What our specialists say...

This trip is ideal for those interested in seeing a unique and traditional side of Indonesia that is rarely visited by most travellers. Sumba is one of the most interesting islands in Indonesia with its animist culture showcased in ceremonies and encounters with tribal chiefs. Have a few days in Bali at either side in more comfortable accommodation, and explore villages in the central and eastern regions.

We recommend this trip for:

  • Denpasar
  • Ubud
  • Denpasar
  • Tambolaka
  • Waikabubak
  • Denpasar
  • Sumba
  • Candidasa
