Borneo Rajang River Cruise

In 2010 with the help of World Expeditions we put together a 4 week trip to Borneo, which included the ascent of Kinabalu, trekking the headhunters trail and shooting rapids in a longboat.

However one of the highlights was the Rejang River Tour. The combination of the superbly opulent teak and brass appointments of the boat together with food and service of the highest quality and the exposure to the real Borneo was really remarkable.

Our ship’s guide, Louis Jap, through daily excursions into the hinterland, introduced us to the history and tribal culture of this part of Borneo. We trekked in the jungle. We visited longhouses, participated in a wonderful village Muslim wedding, where we appeared to blend in seamlessly with the rest of the guests. We transferred to smaller boats to sail small tributaries to see the early morning wildlife. We visited a remote jungle boarding school and medical centre, and had regular evening entertainment from local school children and dancers as we moored up for the night.

The ships crew welcomed us back to the boat after each excursion with hot towels and drinks – and took our footwear to clean before we could soil the deck. When we were cruising we could just relax with our 20 fellow passengers and have all our needs attended to.

This is only a taste of a trip, which certainly exceeded our expectations by a country mile!!

Africa is home to some of the great national parks of the world. Teeming with wildlife, magnificent landscapes and diverse culture, experience all that Africa has to offer with World Expeditions. Interact with Masai people in Tanzania, climb Kilimanjaro, relax on the beaches of Zanzibar, trek the Sinai Desert in Egypt, go on a walking safari in Botswana or visit Ethiopia, Kenya, Libya, Madagascar, Mali, Morocco, South Africa, Uganda and more.

Africa is considered by anthropologists as the birthplace of humanity, where mankind evolved and progressed. Throughout the Great Rift Valley fossil traces show how humanity adapted to the diversity of opportunities in the widespread savannahs. This diversity is possibly why Africa retains such a primal attraction to travelers and especially to those looking for adventure.
