Description

Get a glimpse of the culture and natural heritage of Kuching during this day-long excursion. After visiting the orangutans at the Semenggoh Wildlife Center, see the traditional Bidayuh longhouse of Annah Rais Longhouse. In the afternoon, kayak through beautiful landscapes on the Sarawak Kiri River.

Depart from Kuching City and make your way to the Semenggoh Wildlife Center, an orangutan rehabilitation centre. On a tour of the forest reserve, learn about the orangutans who live there, most of whom were orphaned, injured, or rescued from around the country. An expert explains the behaviours and lifestyles of the apes and educates you on the centre's efforts to get the orangutans ready for release into the wild once more.

After your visit to the wildlife centre, head to the Annah Rais Longhouse nestled in the foothills of the Penrissen mountains. The longhouse, which dates back 200 years and features 80 doors, is a traditional building of the Bidayuh people—interact with the indigenous group and learn about their culture before a sumptuous lunch of local dishes.

In the afternoon, your adventure continues with a kayaking journey on the Sarawak Kiri River. Drift downstream, admiring limestone karsts and the lush, jungle-clad banks on either side until you reach your destination of Kampung Semadang. After your kayaking adventure, return to Kuching in a comfortable coach.

Assin and his team were great guides. I was so lucky to see the Orangutans being fed. Such characters! The kyaking part was great too floating by majesyic limestone mountains and wild countryside. Standing under the waterfall was a bonus on such a hot day! I highly recommend this tour
