    We found this place by accident, we crossed the "bridge to nowhere " expecting to be able to see/visit some of the sites on the other side of the river we found everything locked up apart from this place if you like plants and flowers it is well worth a walk over the bridge.

    My husband and I booked the Discovery Kayaking tour. We were picked up from our hotel in Kuching and our driver made conversation with us as we were driven through the beautiful countryside to the kayaking spot. Upon arrival, we were welcomed by our guides McQueen and Mardi. McQueen gave a humorous but comprehensive safety briefing before we set out on the river. We are experienced kayakers, but this tour would be suitable even for beginners. The river is calm and peaceful with only a few areas of gentle rapids. We both weigh over 100 kilos, but a double kayak was able to accommodate us. However, due to our size and being older people with back problems, a sit-on-top kayak is not the most comfortable ride for us. This at times made it difficult for us to shift position while sitting in the kayak. At one point, we went through some gentle rapids and we were not able to keep up with the paddling, which caused us to capsize. McQueen and Mardi immediately came to our rescue and quickly assisted us with getting back into the kayak, so no harm was caused except to our egos for our embarrassment at tipping over.

    Other than that, we enjoyed the lovely scenery of the tour, which includes a stop at a small waterfall as well as a stop to feed fish in the river. The water was the perfect temperature to cool down in. McQueen and Mardi took photos of all of us during the trip so that we were able to relax and focus on the scenery. After kayaking for 10 kilometers, we reached Semadang's base camp, where full changing and shower facilities are available. We were treated to an excellent lunch of local dishes prepared by David and Vivian. There were plenty of vegetarian options available. It was honestly the best food we had on our trip to Borneo. The photos taken during the tour were sent to us via email and we were driven back to our hotel. Everything was planned perfectly, and throughout the day, all of Semadang's staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. We really enjoyed chatting with the staff, who are clearly very passionate about their work and sharing the river with their customers. Many thanks to the Semandang team for a memorable experience!

    We've spent a wonderful morning in wetlands with a terrific guide (Aiman). We've been able to see all the promised wildlife: crocodiles, dolphins, proboscis monkeys, the whole nine yards. Worth every penny !

    The tour (3N/4D wildlife) was simply incredible! Your guide Abbas did an amazing job to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. He provided so much knowledge about the region, the animals and Borneo in general. The lodges we stayed at were all great, clean, and the people working there were also fantastic. Every single activity was always starting on time and it was very smooth to go through the different locations. I cannot recommend this tour enough!
