We gave it a shot and were not disappointed! Bird show was funny and interesting in one! Nice training! Tour guide was knowledgeable and explained a lot. Before the short jungle survival course he suggested to order already for our lunch, as the cooking time for the KK (kawayan kitchen) is around 45min. The survival course was interesting and we want to know more!!! All in all not disapponting and we are thinking to take even the 3 days/2 nights jungle survival course!!

Ask for Ms. Angel in the morning and Mr. Angelo at night. :) Super fun tour guide who knows a LOT about the birds they take care. Time your visit to enjoy the amazing Bird Show (one of the best things I've seen) and donate generously to the conservation efforts please. Say hi to Ola for me. If you watch the show, you'll meet her and she is the sweetest little thing. Also, be brave enough to try the Swing. Its scary only in the first part. Be prepared to take a lot of pictures and learn a lot of things about birds if you visit the Camp.

I tried to contact this company several times by email and on their site. Communication proved very difficult, to the point I that I could not risk extending travel to the area on the off chance they were operating.

Guy does a few neat things with a machete and some bamboo. Coolest part was starting a fire by friction. Makes a spoon, poker, rice cooker from bamboo. Short little show. Cute but not worth the time to make a trip here. If here already, maybe.

It was an interesting exposure for our kids. We took the 2 hour activity in the morning and we ware lucky that there was only three groups/ families. The kids were happy to see the camp, and learn a few ideas from the activity. Paid 250 each for the kids, Partner hotels can give pass for discount of entrance fee. The bird show was okay, took about 20mins. Overall, the activity was okay but Jest Camp needs to innovate and add new things considering that the environment is huge and has lots of potential. The area needs to be improved, laid back since its opening. The motivation and promotion for conservation needs to consider new ideas and keep up with the times. Kids learn a lot from school and from the media. Jest camp can build its unique conservation strategy.
