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!!

Yasawa Islands Sea Kayaking - Fiji

The Yasawa Islands are a sea kayaker's delight - a region of sparkling azure waters and white sandy beaches fringed by pristine coral reefs. For six days we paddle in modern expedition-style kayaks through the remote islands of the Northern Yasawas. We follow an itinerary dictated by the winds and the tides. During the trip we will stop at uninhabited beaches to enjoy picnic lunches and snorkel in the clear South Pacific water. We will kayak for three to four hours each day, leaving plenty of opportunity for swimming, visiting nearby traditional villages or just relaxing in a timeless tropical ambience. Camp each night will be on a pristine beach or near a traditional Fijian village where the friendly local people are always happy to share their culture, traditions and history.
