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!!

Why World Expeditions?

World Expeditions has been specializing in creating tailor made adventures for a wide variety of private groups and family holidays for over 30 years.  Over this time, we have specialized in taking many small private groups and families to destinations all round the world.  With all this experience under our belt, we’re well suited to develop an itinerary perfectly suited to the needs of your private group.  World Expeditions office staff are also very experienced and regularly travel on our journeys so we can pass on tips and first hand knowledge gained in the field.


 

Benefits of travelling in a private group

There are many benefits of private group travel.  Though probably the benefit you’ll love the most is whilst you get the holiday of a life time, you don’t need to worry about organising it all, as that’s our job.   And it’s a job we do well.

These holidays do not feature in our brochure, so the only people on the trip are those within your group.  You choose the style of travel, the class of accommodation and the inclusions so the journey perfectly suits you and your group.  Plus it’s totally up to your group to determine when and where you wish to travel, offering you greater flexibility and independence.

Also as you’ll be travelling as a group, you can rest assured we’ll secure a great price which will be cheaper if your group did the same itinerary without our assistance.  Travelling with us also means we can take you safely to remote places and get you off the beaten track giving you a greater experience of the destination than a regular tourist. 

 

Organising Private Group Travel

Organising a private group is as easy as picking up the phone or coming into our office.  Just let us know where you wish to travel to, how many are in your group and an estimated date of departure and we’ll start researching and investigating your itinerary.

Once you’re happy with the trip, we’ll then put together a full set of detailed Trip Notes outlining the daily itinerary, the trip highlights, trip inclusions & exclusions, fast facts about the country, visa requirements as well as some other helpful info.  These Trips Notes can be distributed to your group, so everyone has a clear idea of the holiday.

If you need a bit more info, then World Expeditions sales staff are more than happy to organise private information nights especially for your group based on the itinerary we create.

Remember as a fully serviced Travel Agent, we can also take care of your flights and visa’s as well as your land arrangements – so we’re a one stop shop.
