Wilds of Sarawak by Bicycle
Borneo conjures up images of intrepid explorers, dense tropical rainforest, a dazzling array of tropical wildlife and of course, the great ape indigenous to this island, the orangutan. This week long cycling adventure takes in Kuching, the diverse, lively capital of Sarawak; orangutan rehabilitation centres where you have a chance to get up close to these engaging creatures, kayaking the languid Sarawak River, hiking along steamy jungle paths, and taking cooling dips at a waterfall. The jungle adventures are much the focus of the tour but there will also be plenty of time to mingle with the friendly, fun and fascinating local indigenous people, as the group will stay in their houses and visit their villages.

The Malaysian jungle conjures up images of intrepid explorers, dense tropical rainforest, a dazzling array of exotic wildlife, and indigenous communities expertly adapted to life harmony with this captivating, biodiverse ecosystem. And, of course, there are our distant cousins of humans - the orangutans - who roam these lands! On this week-long cycling adventure of the jungle-clad state of Sarawak you'll experience the best of the island's wild and rural sides.
The trip starts in the state capital of Kuching. Here you'll also warm up your legs with a leisurely ride around the town, where old world charm meets new world buzz. The following day you'll head to Semenggoh Nature Reserve for your first taste of the jungle and to spend some time with rehabilitated orangutans at feeding time. From here on out it's full throttle cycling along quiet back county roads that crisscross lush plantations, rainforests, rice fields, charming villages, and impressive geological formations. Off-saddle highlights include kayaking along the Sarawak River, a longhouse tour in Annah Rais, exploring the "Fairy Caves", discovering the Chinese heritage town of Siniawan, and enjoying an adventurous night-safari in Kubah National Park. The final two days of riding are along coastal routes where jungle-meets-ocean and where you can spend time on some gorgeous beaches. The tour ends back in Kuching.
