Day 1 - Meet and proceed for Lemanak River Safari. A 225 km car/coach journey takes you through lush green countryside dotted with padi fields, pepper gardens and rubber plantations, and flanked by rugged jungle-clad mountains.  Along the way, stop off at the Serian farmer’s market, visit a pepper garden and view carnivorous pitcher plants. Stop for lunch at a roadside bazaar deep in Iban country.  Arrive at Lemanak jetty mid-afternoon for a longboat ride up the Lemanak River, passing through typical Borneo countryside with a longhouse tucked behind almost every bend in the river.   Arrive at Serubah/Nanga Kesit longhouse and visit the “entire village under one roof.” Dinner, featuring delicious fresh jungle produce, is served in the simple guest-house. After dinner, return to the longhouse for an evening’s entertainment, including traditional dancing, music, games and a glass or two of tuak (rice wine) with the longhouse chief. The Iban are a fun-loving people, and visitors are expected to join in! 

Overnight in the guest house with basic amenities (No Air-condition and No private room for individuals) as the accommodation is built by the Longhouse people to help supplement their income for their livelihood and children education. (B/L/D)


Day 2 - After breakfast, enjoy a blowpipe demonstration and try shooting one yourself.  Then take a short walk through the forest accompanied by Iban trackers, and learn about the traditional uses of rainforest plants in Iban culture. The walk ends at the river bank, where you embark in a longboat for a journey upriver to a tree-lined jungle pool. Lunch will be served.  The return journey is done in traditional style to the sounds of the rainforest - boats are propelled with poles instead of outboard motor.  Return downriver for transfer to Batang Ai jetty.  After a 30 minute boat river across the 24 sq km Batang Ai Hydro Lake, arrive at the luxurious Hilton Batang Ai Longhouse Resort. Dinner and accommodation at the Resort. (B/L/D)
