About us

Our Story

The origins of Flight of the Gibbon date back to 2007. The company was the vision of New Zealand adventurer David Allardice, a well-known explorer who loved adventure sports and Asia. To enable others to experience the beauty and majesty of the Thai rainforest that he adored so much, David set up Thailand’s first ever treetop Zipline course. With a passion for the outdoors and the environment, David wanted to create a safe and eco-friendly business model. This would benefit the local community, wildlife and the environment, and at the same time provide something unique that people would truly enjoy.

Fast forward more than 10 years, Flight of the Gibbon is now the largest and most trusted Zipline experience in Asia. We have grown a lot from our humble beginnings, but we remain faithful to David’s legacy. Flight of the Gibbon continues to be an advocate of responsible ecotourism and we have established a number of ongoing programs to support local communities and the environment. Our community programs have helped orphans and underprivileged children, and our environmental programs include reforestation and the reintroduction of local wildlife.

Our Mission

Flight of the Gibbon connects people with Asia's nature, history and bygone stories while conserving nature and traditional livelihoods. Flight of the Gibbon is remembered as a once-in-a-lifetime experience with uniqueness, mystery and surprise that visitors taste, smell, see, hear and feel.
