The Rejang River Safari

 

The 560 Km long Rejang river is the longest river in Malaysia formed by the confluence of the Balui and Baleh Rivers. The Rejang river is also the main highway of access to thousand of longhouses and villages along the river.  

Sibu, the second largest town in Sarawak is the main point to catch an express boat upriver visiting longhouse communities along the way.

Kapit, situated halfway up the Rejang river and is accessible only by express boat or light aircraft, is an excellent base for exploring nearby Iban longhouses and is the gateway for the upper Rejang and the Baleh.

Belaga, the last town on the Rejang river is a small town where residents of the upriver longhouses and villages come to trade.
