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!!

Brisbane : Cycling Routes of the World

What better way to experience a world of adventure than from handle bar level!

Cycling adventures enable you to explore areas travellers don’t normally get access to, and you do it all at a slow pace so you can take everything in. With the wind in your hair and the sun on your back you can perfectly combine activity with discovery. Join World Expeditions resident cyclist Philip Wyndham as he recalls some of his cycling adventures and our adventures through Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, China, India, Peru, Europe and Australia as well as showing you how you can join us on these rewarding adventures.

World Expeditions began organizing cycling holidays in India in 1978, when we first recognised that cycling was the perfect means to explore remote villages a world away from the highways. Today, we operate a range of cycling holidays to suit all levels of cycling ability. From fully supported short cycling interludes to more challenging cross country traverses. Come and see for yourself how you can join us on one of these great adventures.
