Pandaw Launches Kalimantan, Borneo River Cruise


The "Into the True Heart of Borneo" seven-night river expedition sails the Kapuas River System in western Kalimantan, the Indonesian part of the island of Borneo.


Pandaw has announced the launch of a new "Into the True Heart of Borneo" seven-night river cruise, which sails the Kapuas River System in western Kalimantan, the Indonesian part of the island of Borneo.

The river system is the largest in Borneo, flowing over 700 miles, fringed with rainforest and surrounded by mountain ranges.

The seven-night expedition on the Katha Pandaw takes in the upper part of the Kapuas, a voyage that includes traversing the Danau Sentarum system of lakes that connect to the river and are now a national park.

Pandaw’s ship, the Katha Pandaw, has 16 staterooms, open deck dining, self-service bar and panoramic round ship promenade decks.

Passengers fly in via Kuching in Sarawak (in Malaysian Borneo), which has connections to Singapore and Kuala Lumpur.

As a stopover Kuching offers Brooke Raj colonial buildings, a museum and a Chinatown.

Alternatively, there is the option to fly into Pontianak, the capital of Western Kalimantan, which has daily flights to Jakarta.
