The Lemanak River Safari


Lemanak is a tributary of the main Batang Lupar River. Many traditional longhouses can be found situated along the river.

Like Skrang, the Lemanak River is another exciting destination within easy reach from Kuching.

About 220 kilometres away from Kuching, Lemanak can be reached in about 5 hours by road. The journey passes through the scenic countryside, rubber and pepper plantations, padi fields, sago palms and followed by an hour motorised-longboat ride penetrating the tropical rainforest through meandering stream.

An overnight stay gives you an opportunity to have a glimpse of the lifestyle of the longhouse and its people. An evening entertainment by the longhouse folks is most interesting and educational. Traditional dances and music are the highlight of the evening entertainment.


Cock-fighting and jungle trekking on the following day are other highlights of the Lemanak River Safari.
