Brief Itinerary


Depart your hotel to the Lemanak River takes about 4 hours, passing padi fields, pepper plantations, farms, roadside kampungs and tropical jungles. Stop at the small town of Serian and later for lunch at Lachau. At the jetty, board a native boat for the upriver journey to an Iban Longhouse. On arrival, settle in at the Longhouse while your guide prepares dinner. After a simple dinner, join the rest of the longhouse folks and enjoy an evening of music and dance with rounds of tuak, their home made rice wine.

When the evening winds down, guests can present their gifts to the Iban, small tokens which will be shared equally amongst all those present. We recommend pens, pencils, children’s reading/ colouring/ drawing/ exercise books, cookies, candy, even canned food – inexpensive things, but well liked and appreciated.Stay overnight at the River Lodge. Arrangements can be made to stay with an Iban Family. A note of caution however, dogs are part of the family and you may find yourself sleeping near one. There are only basic facilities with no hot water for showers at the longhouse. Meals: Lunch & Dinner only.


Breakfast at the Guesthouse. Take part in a blowpipe and cockfight demonstration before proceeding for a nature walk to visit native farms and an Iban burial ground. Later return to the river jetty for your journey back to the city. Lunch at local cafe. Continue on to the city. Drop off at your city hotel. Meals: Breakfast & Lunch only.

Note: Should you like to bring gifts for the people at the longhouse, biscuits, books, pencils, pens, educational toys and dolls are highly appreciated.
