Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Treat yourself to an experience in the Kuching wilderness. Paddling leisurely down the mouth of Sungai Sarawak Kiri, one can enjoy beautiful natural settings of limestone formations and towering riverine trees. Lunch will be served at Bidayuh village before exploring a herb garden where guests can see, touch and smell interesting plant species. Look out for sweet smelling treats in the wild such as chempedak, pineapple, cocoa, pepper, changkuk manis and many others. Continue kayaking towards a sandy bank where you can plunge into the river for a cool dip before we make our way to Kampung Semadang, Borneo Highlands.

    Please note that our kayaking trips are suitable for children aged 5 and above (accompanied by an adult) and for the old as well! Please indicate your child’s age, height, and weight for bookings.

    This was my second time doing the kayaking trip and this time it was pouring rain and we absolutely loved the view in the rain. It felt like we were experiencing the "real" Borneo in the rain with mist all over the hills! I recommend this trip to everyone who visits Kuching!

    Hi Abigail! You're a most welcome. Thank you for the review. So glad to here about your experiences at the longhouse. I've always loved experiences at the village especially during festive season. Watching families uniting under one roof and even a simple food prepared somehow taste so good. Haha! Hope you had a great Merry Christmas in Kuching and wishing you a wonderful and fruitful year next year! :)

    Hi Erica. Thank you so much for the review and for the feedback. I've already inform the guides and they have taken note of it. Hope you will get better soon. Perhaps to ease the itch, you could try hydrocortisone or calamine lotion directly to the bites to help them heal and reduce itching. Oatmeal baths and aloe vera can also soothe itching. Hope these helps. :)

    We went during low season so there were only the 2 of us so it’s more like a private trip with 2 guides going along with us. The experience was amazing. The water was higher during low season so it wasn’t too tiring to kayak. We got to kayak into a small stream off the main

    Hi Nisa! Glad to hear from you. Thank you for the review. Definitely the best time during our low season to go kayaking and highly encourage to bring along insect repellent during kayaking so can reapply once it wears off. :)
