Borneo Rajang River Cruise

In 2010 with the help of World Expeditions we put together a 4 week trip to Borneo, which included the ascent of Kinabalu, trekking the headhunters trail and shooting rapids in a longboat.

However one of the highlights was the Rejang River Tour. The combination of the superbly opulent teak and brass appointments of the boat together with food and service of the highest quality and the exposure to the real Borneo was really remarkable.

Our ship’s guide, Louis Jap, through daily excursions into the hinterland, introduced us to the history and tribal culture of this part of Borneo. We trekked in the jungle. We visited longhouses, participated in a wonderful village Muslim wedding, where we appeared to blend in seamlessly with the rest of the guests. We transferred to smaller boats to sail small tributaries to see the early morning wildlife. We visited a remote jungle boarding school and medical centre, and had regular evening entertainment from local school children and dancers as we moored up for the night.

The ships crew welcomed us back to the boat after each excursion with hot towels and drinks – and took our footwear to clean before we could soil the deck. When we were cruising we could just relax with our 20 fellow passengers and have all our needs attended to.

This is only a taste of a trip, which certainly exceeded our expectations by a country mile!!

Montenegro Cycle

In the heart of the Balkans, the newly independent nation of Montenegro has a wealth of historic treasures and stunning Adriatic coastline to explore. Journeying to this intriguing country, the cycle begins near Dubrovnik from the small coastal town of Cavtat in the region of Konavle, filled with Renaissance architecture and authentic charm. Discover the Bay of Kotor and the town of Herceg Novi, situated terrace-like above the bay. From the border with Croatia to the capital and beyond, the cycle route explores quiet mountain and coastal roads to reach sandy beaches, the birdlife rich Skutari Lake and historic pirate hideouts. Plenty of time is set aside to explore the interesting towns of Budva, Kotor and Cetinje en route, and to take a swim in the sea or relax at the many viewpoints along the way.
