AMAZON OF ASIA - BORNEO RIVER SAFARI CRUISE

Always dreamed of visiting the Amazon Rainforest but find it too far and expensive? ;) Discover the Amazon of Asia - come with us on a Borneo River Safari Cruise!

STAY 3N ABOARD A TRADITIONAL WOODEN KELOTOK HOUSEBOAT

Live like how the Locals used to on a Traditional Wooden Kelotok Houseboat! Be stunned by the Sunsets, the pristine Nature & Wildlife around you. Fall asleep to Fireflies (N1 on Boat), Wake up to the sound of Birds, and be refreshed by the pure air of the Rainforest.

WAKE UP IN THE RAINFOREST

*note: simple mattresses, dainty mosquito nets, toilet / shower will be very bare minimum, ie. use cold water + pail.

CANDLELIGHT DINNERS

We'll have our very own Cook on board to make us lots of yummy food + snacks and tea breaks too!

4 DAYS OF ALL DAY WILDLIFE SAFARI

Once you enter the National Park, your Safari adventure begins! Keep your eyes peeled as your nature guide spots various monkeys and birds and points them out for you whilst telling you all about them. A good Wildlife guide is essential since spotting Wildlife is really pretty difficult. And makes all the difference between just being a boat ride for transport VS a Wildlife Safari!

TREK TO SEE ORANGUTANS

Kalimantan is home to the largest population of Orangutans (~5000) in the World! there are a mix of Wild & semi Wild / rehabilitated Orangutans here. we'll trek / walk (20-45min) into the Rainforest to the feeding platforms to see the Orangutans. hear the local Orangutan caretakers call out to them for feeding time, and watch the Orangutans magically appear from the trees!

NIGHT TREKKING + STAR GAZING SAMPAN RIDE

Discover the Nocturnal Life of the Rainforest. Your nature guide will point out to you the many Spiders and Insects living in the ground and on the trees.. several glowing Mushrooms, Fireflies. If you're lucky, you might get to see some sleeping Birds! Then, after dinner, go Star Gazing on a little Sampan boat. If you're lucky, you might get to see some Owls, and perhaps even Crocodiles!

PLANT YOUR VERY OWN BABY TREE

Learn about the different kinds of native Trees, the different purposes that they serve, ie. that provide Food for Animals, that make good Materials.. and pick one to plant to help with Reforestation! We'll even get to write our names on a little wooden plaque to plant next to them.

STOPOVER IN SEMARANG HILL RESORT (1D2N)

Great Sunrise + Fresh Mountain Air by the Cold Infinity Pool. Spend a Day doing some Adventurous activities (optional / additional cost) such as ATV Riding, Flying Fox, Marine Bridge (walk on net, like the one that just opened at Changi Jewel), Triangle (high bridge, like Tree Top Macritchie, but over great height / hills rather than trees), Horse Riding.
