  • J.J Wallia - San Fransisco, Calfiornia

    This tour was one of the best vacation and wildlife experiences I have had (and I have seen pretty much everything in Africa). Despite all it has to offer, Kalimantan is a tough place to vacation in so I was not expecting much. However, I was blown away by this trip.

  • Sue Hewett (21-24 December 2012)

    This cruise was everything we'd dreamed and more. The boat is very comfortable, the crew efficient and courteous and the food delicious!  The guide couldn't have been better - fun, passionate, thoughtful, knowledgeable and great company!

  • Renee Dugan (America)

    Thank you again for taking such great care of all of us during our recent visit to Kalimantan. You and the crew were so professional, kind, generous and fun. Our group really enjoyed getting to know you, eating the delicious food presented to us each day, and relaxing on your boat. 

  • Sue & Werner Ebert (Australia)

     The river cruise was beyond awesome. We had a great crowd on the boat. We had fantastic food and nothing was seen as too hard to do for us from all the crew.

  • Mettlijs Borte, Holland

    Thank you very much for an unforgettable jungle experience. The long boat journey through the flooded jungle was great. The food was excellent as well.

  • Mardiah Gleeson, USA

    It was so moving to visit the two villages. Kanarakhan and Gaung Baru were memorable in their exchange of culture with us.

  • Robin, England

    To all on the Rahai'i Pangun, thank you for introducing me to the wonders of Central Kalimantan over a fantastic few days. Loved the boat, loved the concept, loved the food - and the company was pretty great too!

  • Nakashima Family, Japan

    This Jungle River Cruise gave us a great present! The river and time pass slowly on the boat. Not only orangutans and jungle but also the people, especially the children of the village moved us so much. I was impressed!

  • Kathy and Jacques, Switzerland

    We had a wonderful 3 days and 2 nights on the beautiful Rahai'i Pangun. The whole crew looked after us every minute with great food, cool drinks and all the comforts to make our trip memorable. Thanks to Lorna, Sayful, Suryadi, Patirwin, Anto, Ujeng and Ready!
