Broome, Australia

Located in the far northwest of Australia, our independent journeys to this remote part of the island-continent finally ended in Broome. Staying at the beautiful Cable Beach Resort overlooking the Indian Ocean, we met our fellow travelers, renewed old acquaintances, and made new friends while sipping sunset cocktails. Tom Hiney and Sacha Guggenheimer welcomed us as we sat down for dinner...

Blog Post

On Zegrahm’s February 2013 Brunei to Bali expedition, guests had the opportunity to tour the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Center in Sandakan, Malaysia. While there, they were able to learn about the organization’s mission and meet the resident orangutans, including a very special resident. Nonong is a 12-year-old female orangutan that suffers from cerebral malaria, which paralyzed her left hand and foot. Because of her condition, she will never be able to go back into the wild and will...

The island and people of Tsoi Lik have always held a special place in the hearts of Zegrahm’s cofounders and travelers.

It all began on a visit over 25 years ago. While exploring the island, Zegrahm cofounder, Werner Zehnder, and fellow travelers were fascinated by the population of indigenous megapodes—chicken-like, incubator birds with small heads and large feet. Unfortunately, the megapodes were severely threatened at the time so the team organized a sizable contribution to be...
