Who are they and what they do

Pro-Eco Adventure (PEA) is a private company that offers nature adventure tours throughout the Malaysian Peninsula and offers activities that allow you to discover Malaysian culture and traditions.

Annie Le Mens and Stephen Sequerah who started PEA in February 2006 are two camping-in-the-jungle lovers. Both share the same interest – and passion – for trekking in remote wild areas of the Malaysian forest to meet Orang Asli, (the original inhabitants of the peninsular‘s rainforest) and to observe wildlife and fauna. They met during a camping weekend in one such remote Malaysian jungle a few years ago and became close friends. The idea of PEA grew slowly from their willingness to share this unbeaten path with others. They first tested their tours on their own friends and family before extending the experience to the Kuala Lumpur expat community. “Stephen has friends in almost any village in the peninsula, it’s unbelievable, and he knows his own country deeply. As a French expatriate I would understand the expectation of the occidental tourist. We are complementary and we are lucky to work from our passion and enjoy so much sharing it with others”, says Annie. Read the rest of this entry »
