Before Jacqui renamed it Rucksack a few years back, her father had been taking travellers on kayak journeys down the Kiri River for decades.  Jacqui took over the operations for her father but maintained the spirit of local guides showing the best of Sarawak culture. Come along for the water trip and get to see the longhouse perched on the bank of the river. Also take the chance to see rehabilitated orangutans at the Semmenggoh Wildlife Centre if you have not done so yet.
