The Natural History Trip of a Lifetime - In Search of Wallace and His Living Treasures

Posted by David Penney on

In January 2018, experienced naturalist and Wallace expert Dr George Beccaloni will be leading a unique and incredible 12 day cruise to some of the most magical and remote places which Wallace visited in his epic journey around the Malay Archipelago. The itinerary was carefully designed by George and SeaTrek in order to see the maximum possible number of Birds of Paradise and other amazing animals, as well as some of the most spectacular places and best coral reefs in Indonesia (and indeed the World). The cruise ship is a small but luxuriously modernised traditional Indonesian trading vessel and in it we will travel in style to places that very few tourists ever visit.

Check out our Wallace titles above and if you would like to order any of them please use code WALLACE to get an extra 20% of our already discounted prices!

SeaTrek have very generously donated a cabin to raise much needed funds for the Wallace Correspondence Project (WCP) The cabin can accommodate two adults and a child (minimum age is 4) and the regular cost would be US$5950 per person - so the entire cabin would cost US$11,900 (currently £9,215 GBP). Please note that children under 12 go free! This price includes all meals, non-alcoholic drinks, laundry service and everything else whilst on board - you will not be disappointed! If you would like to help the WCP, then George will be accepting bids for the cabin (over £8,000 please!) up until 1st August 2017. Please send your bid to George at  The highest bidder will win the cabin and all proceeds will be used to further the work of the WCP.

For LOTS more information about the trip please see You can, of course, simply book a cabin directly with SeaTrek and pay the regular price, but that means that the proceeds will not go to the WCP. See more about this opportunity and the cruise on the Alfred Russel Wallace Website page* here:
