Semadang Kayaking Day Tour

Updated: Feb 29

Kuching - Semadang River Kayaking - Bidayuh Village - Jungle Waterfall - Kuching: Semadang River is a little over an hour's drive from Kuching city centre and has the perfect balance between tranquil atmosphere, beautiful landscape, and swift moving current. If you want to experience a fun and relaxing river trip with the majestic landscape and nature that the Borneo rainforest has to offer, this kayaking tour is for you.

Our Semadang kayaking day trips allow beginners, school groups, and even children (6 years and older) with a very basic fitness level to experience a taste of the vast Bornean wilderness from a different perspective from the safety of a sturdy kayak. No prior experience is necessary since your guide will teach you all the techniques you will need on location.

9:00am - Pick up from your hotel in Kuching and drive through scenic countryside to the Bidayuh village of Kampung Bengoh, where your guide will explain the unique features of the river. After a quick safety briefing and practice, you will begin your 11 kilometre kayak tour by gently paddling down the river, where you are likely to be amazed by the beauty of the surrounding landscape. You'll be making a stop at a small waterfall along the river before heading to a lunch stop at another Bidayuh village, Kampung Danu. After lunch, you will kayak downstream to a small cave, then make another stop at Tanjung Baru for swimming. The trip ends at around 2:30pm then transfers back to Kuching; the time may vary depending on the pace of the group.

You may also choose to visit the Semenggoh Wildlife Centre en route to watch the semi-wild orangutans at feeding time. There will be a small surcharge for this side trip, and the departure time from Kuching is 8:00am.

Lunch provided.
