IBANS - THE HEADHUNTERS OF BORNEO
The Ibans, at 30% of the whole population, are the largest tribe in Sarawak. They are found throughout Sarawak, living mostly in longhouse by the rivers. The longhouse, a village community living under one roof, is the heart of the Iban life. Originating as a means of collective defense, a longhouse is normally situated near the banks of a river, and on average contains 14 "doors" or apartments (bilek) in which families live.


Joint tour : Daily departure from Kuching city with English speaking guide (minimum 2 persons)
Private tour: Daily departure from Kuching city with English speaking guide.

Day  1
KUCHING LEMANAK RIVER (-/Lunch/Diner)
Pick up from Kuching city hotel for a 290-km car ride with en route stops at a pepper farm, the local market in the town of Serian and also a stop to observe wild orchids and pitcher plants.
Lunch will be provided in Lachau, a small upcountry Chinese village. After lunch you will continue the car ride to the jetty, where you will board native longboats and travel upriver to arrive at an Iban Longhouse.
After arrival you will be taken up to the longhouse to meet the Ibans and their families and have a tea break. In the evening, you may choose to join your guide when preparing the dinner.
See how, with simple cooking utensils and local ingredients, a delicious meal can be prepared. After dinner, the Ibans will sound their gongs and perform their war dance in full ceremonial regalia.
