Semadang Bamboo Rafting : Let’s get back to basic! Bamboo Rafting Package offers a unique and memorable experience with traditional raft along the beautiful river.

This is not your typical bamboo raft with wooden chairs for passengers to sit. On this trip, you will use the bamboo-pole to control the direction and speed of the raft the Kampung-style.

A bamboo raft is a long, clumsy aquatic vehicle and, with three to four people on board, it’s not always easy to maneuver the beast around the twists and turns of the river but it is still a great way to enjoy the lush tropical forest without having to walk through the jungles.

A guide will accompany you throughout your journey. A warm home-cooked lunch will be served at our base camp after a fun day on the river.
