Activities

Explore a thriving rainforest (with waterfalls and rivers!)

The Bataan Forest is one of the last thriving rainforests on this side of the Philippines and home to the Aeta Ambala Tribe. Join us as we explore this lush land and seek to understand the stories that begin in its roots and blow in its winds.

Share local stories and traditions

It is because of the Aeta Ambalan Tribe’s values and respect for their forest that it has continued to thrive. Hear the tribe’s stories of both struggle and hope as you hike through the beautiful land they have so dutifully defended.

Help preserve culture and build livelihoods

Immerse in the past as you learn about indigenous Filipino culture and help build a sweeter future as you plant trees in the tribe’s own fruit forest.

Social Impact

Despite its abundant natural resources and proximity to the burgeoning Subic Bay Metropolitan Area, the Aeta Ambala Tribe has lagged behind in progress and remains poor due to lack of education and opportunities. As such the community is vulnerable to land grabbers and cultural depreciation.

Done in collaboration with the Lighthouse Legacy Foundation, this tour aims to create livelihoods that are derived from and grow with the forest, including the growing of a fruit forest and the development of an array of bamboo products,  in hopes that this encourages and empowers this indigenous tribe to continue to preserve it.

Through the tour activities and guests’ volunteer work, members of the community are also given the chance to earn by assigning them employable tasks, uplifting not just their financial capacity but also their human dignity.

Each visit also invites the the tribe to celebrate, document, and preserve its unique native culture.
