Navigate through the geological wonders of Indonesian Islands on an 8-day voyage aboard the newly refurbished Silver Discoverer.

Departing from Bali, Indonesia, on 23 November 2017, Silver Discoverer sets sails to Tanjung Wangi, the eastern tip of East Java, where guests are surrounded by one of the most volcanically active areas in the world. From here, Silver Discoverer journeys to Sumenepand the surrounding areas, which are home to a number of traditional arts and crafts – among them the production of Keris (daggers), batik, Karduluk-style woodcarvings and the Muangsangkal and mask dances.

Silver Discoverer continues her journey to Kumai, where guests have the rare and unforgettable opportunity to visit the world famous Camp Leakey and exclusive parts of the nature reserve usually closed to the general public. Located in the Tanjung Puting Reserve, in Central Borneo, Camp Leakey is devoted to the conservation of wild Orangutans and their rainforest habitat. In addition to the behind the scene access and personal guided visit of Camp Leakey by founder, world renowned environmentalist, anthropologist and orangutan expert, Dr. Galdikas, our guests onboard Silver Discoverer will enjoy a series of lectures on the subject before and after the private visit.
