Baleh-Kapit Raft Safari

April 5-7

A two-day rafting competition held along the Rejang River, the Baleh-Kapit Raft Safari has been a yearly anticipated event in the area since its inaugural event in 1996.

This competition has five main categories: Men’s Bamboo Open, Men’s Bamboo Closed (Inter-Department) and Women’s Bamboo Open, as well as the mixed Free Style and Paddle Boat.

This event is to remind people of the importance of water transport in the past of Sarawak as well as the present, particularly in places where road networks have not yet reached.
