This giant muddy river is the highway to the interior. The Mahakam divides itself into three geographical sections. The lower Mahakam, stretches from Samarinda to Muara Prahu just beyond Lake Jempang, an easy tour for visitors short on time. The middle Mahakam includes a series of villages and the upper Mahakam, is an isolated region generally reached by plane at the Datah Dawai airfield at Long Lunuk..
Most visiors see only the lower and middle Mahakam. The upper Mahakam and Apo Kayan district are the best places in East Kalimantan to see relatively undisurbed Dayak culture. Samarinda and Balikpapan is the usual starting point for trips up the Mahakam.
The river safari is a river touring along the great Mahakam river with house boat which is fully equipped with the normal standard of a floating house. You will traveling along the river with this floating house while enjoy the beautiful scenery of the surrounding river side. More over, we will also pay some visit to the Dayak villages nearby which are most built on piles above the water.
You will welcome by the local dancer performing their traditional ritual dance before you, just like a prince returning from the battle field, enjoy the jeep drive with our guide team to the hinterland of East Borneo to meet the indigenous people at home, at their natural village. This trip will be of once a life time trip for you.
