We were so glad we booked this adventure, the entire day was wonderful. We visited the orangutan centre first before heading to the kayaking centre. Bob and Dopez were our guides and they were both brilliant, really knowledgeable and concerned for us and made the day great. The kayaking is very relaxed as it is all downstream. Visiting the mini... More

The overall experience was just wonderful. Booking went smoothly. I've contacted several other company providing Kayaking trip, only Semadang have no minimum pax required, that was a total win in the first place! The river and the small villages were beautiful. Experienced, knowledgeable and helpful guides (Thank you, Bob, Dopez & Ipin!). Wonderful meals for lunch (Thank you, Pai!). Highly... More

From the moment we were picked up from the hotel by Bob, to the briefing before kayaking, to the actual kayaking that was so pleasant, to the delicious lunch, to the return to homebase with cold drinks and shower facilities waiting for us. up to the time we were dropped off to...

All the communication befoerhand was excellent and we were picked up promptly at 8.00 as we wanted to see the orangutans first (lots of reviews elsewhere on tripadvisor) The kayaking itself was really good fun , life jackets are included and it was a gentle kayak downstream through the rain forest with a stop to see and explore the waterfall...

What an amazing day!! Firstly we headed to the Semenggoh Wildlife Centre where one orangutan with its young baby braved the morning rain to swing down through the trees for us. So amazing to experience these magnificent animals. Then off to kayak! The river was high and we had to wait to get the all clear to brave the waters,... More

AWESOME!! if i could turn back time, this was the day that i would have loved to relive again. Amazing sceneries (the whole 11km of it), delicious home-cooked lunch (bamboo chicken was the bomb!), and fun/chatty tour guides! (Special shoutout to Jeffrey and Owen, thank you for being so patient with us and made things even more livelier! You guys... More

What an incredible day!! Kayaking through the rainforest has been one of the most fun things I've done in a long time! We visited a beautiful waterfall and had a home cooked dinner of bamboo chicken, peas & fried egg and the local fern plant. Everything was spot on, the guides were patient with us when we were getting to... More

We had a brilliant time. We were picked up on time. Our driver, McQueen turned out to be our cook. Bob and Lopez were on hand to make sure we went down the river smoothly. Lunch was delicious - chicken cooked in bamboo, rice with some scrambled eggs with green peas and some fruit. Definitely a must when in Kuching.
