Enjoyed a nice day on the water with a large group of people from many places. Started off warm and sunny and ended up very wet and warm. Rain and thunder didn't deter the team and we benefited by taking in the waterfalls falling from the crags above. Suitable for young and old. The team kept a low profile but... More

I'm so glad I did this tour. The guys from Semandang Kayaking are very professional and I felt well taken care of. Hours of kayaking on the Semadang river through the most beautiful forest. They include lunch and also give you a cd of photos at the end which excellent. Great day!!

From there we went to semengoggh orangutan rehabilitation centre for the morning feeding time. We were very lucky and managed to see three of the semi wild orangutans come down for some... More

A really good way to spend the day outdoors. Did the adventure package which involved gentle kayaking downstream, visiting and climbing up a small waterfall, a swim in the river, as well as a traditional lunch half way through. Really chilled out, fun and chatty guides. Picked up from our hotel and dropped back there on time. Visited semenggoh as... More

We booked this trip after reading the amazing reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. We were picked up from our hotel in central Kuching at 8am and visited the Orangutan rehabilitation centre first. We were lucky enough to see two large orangutans, one with a baby. Our girls (8 and 10yrs) enjoyed this. At 10am we headed to... More

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
