Follow in the footsteps of history
One of the most important discoveries in history occurred during one man’s journey through Indonesia, known then as the Malay Archipelago. However, his name has disappeared from the forefront of scientific importance behind the likes of Charles Darwin. Alfred Russel Wallace, a man born into a humble background, was able to travel to this part of the world and through extensive research, prove that the theory of evolution was indeed correct, forcing Darwin to publish his work on the subject. Guests can enjoy following in his footsteps and watch the landscape change as they sail from Bali with its South East Asian wildlife, over the Wallace line into Lombok, where the flora and fauna change to a more Australasian form.
