Sumatran Elephants Embracing
Edition #51 Embracing Indonesia

Hi #firstname#, 

What do you know about Indonesia?

In this edition, we're going to lift the lid on our closest neighbour and perhaps one of the most diverse and exciting travel destinations in the world. 

Rhinos, Tigers, Elephants, Blue Whales, Orangutans, Komodo Dragons, Birds of Paradise ... this is the wildlife that shouts Indonesia. 

It’s the most travelled-to country by Australians yet there is so much more beyond Bali’s bars and nightclubs. 

For starters, if you want to visit every one of Indonesia’s 17,500 islands a day each, it’d take you 48 years - which is perhaps why we can find it a bit bewildering.

So we've pulled together a magazine and travel brochure so you can conveniently explore the whole country. We've included a map, a central ‘pull out’ that does a quick overview of the main islands, their culture, landscapes and wildlife. The brochure contains lots of short and affordable trips that can be either tailored for your travel preferences or added together, to create a longer itinerary. It's just a glimpse of what we can do for you.

This will be our last magazine edition this year, so have a great Christmas and thanks again for all your support.

Best wishes,

Simon Mustoe
Founder, Wildiaries


Indonesia - Born of Fire

From time to time, it’s humbling to be reminded we live suspended on thin plates of rock floating over an ocean of swirling molten iron and nickel. Stripped of its flimsy outer-clothing, Earth’s glowing, naked form, would be as mysterious and inhospitable as the far reaches of our solar system ...

The Wallace Line

Barely 40 kilometres separate the islands of Bali and Lombok, yet they mark the invisible boundary between two geographic domains, first described in 1859 by revered explorer and Darwin luminary, Alfred Russell Wallace. He believed “the western part to be a separated portion of continental Asia, the eastern the fragmentary prolongation of a former pacific continent” ...

Rarest of the Rare

Little more than 200 miles from the nearest Australian territory, lives the world’s rarest Rhinoceros.

One of two species that occurs in Indonesia (the other being the Sumatran Rhino), remaining Javan Rhinos exist exclusively in Ujung Kulon national park.

While hunting is certainly the cause of its restricted range, one of the greatest threats to its recovery isn’t from people but ...

There’s hardly anywhere in the world as diverse as Indonesia in terms of culture, nature and landscape. It’s also a fast-developing nation and visitors may be surprised to discover a high level of hospitality and service for all travelers. 

Because of its diversity, it may seem to present a challenge but this shouldn’t stop you considering it for a holiday. It is an extraordinary place to visit.

To help you, we’ve included maps throughout, which refer to the main islands. You’ll find current advice on air travel, visas, food, accommodation, culture and wildlife.

We’ve also done a brief overview of the key islands and landscapes to help you decide where to start.



Find out more about Indonesia by reading our magazine or downloading the brochure, where you'll find short travel itineraries with handy reference maps and information about domestic flights, travel health, food, accommodation and other exciting facts.   

Book a trip on Pindito


Nothing will prepare you for the experience of Raja Ampat. Because of its rich seas and unique wildlife, it’s been called the ‘Galapagos’ of Asia. Alfred Russel Wallace’s visited here as he amassed his own parallel theories of evolution that fed into Darwin’s. It deserves the reputation. It is one of the most amazing places on Earth.
