The Kebun is an ideal base for sightseeing in the district of Kuching. Just 26 kms (30 minutes) from the City center en-route to some of Sarawak’s national parks like the Kubah National Park (great for the views from the top, a waterfall hike, possible opportunity (weather permitting) for frogging at night) and Gunung Gading National Park (best for the rafflesia, waterfalls and plunge pools) and the Talang Talang, Satang and Sempadi Islands. The Matang Wildlife Center is just down the road.

We recommend you for a wildlife/leisure cruise on the Sungai Rayu River or the Salak River (depending on the sightings the previous day for Irrawaddy Dolphins) down to the Kuching Wetlands Preserve to go crocodile spotting, check out the proboscis monkeys and silver langurs, watch fire flies or do some jungle trekking, digging for fresh water clams, netting for prawns, fishing in our 2 ponds or go explore the many attractions in the area like Kampung Telaga Air, Matang Recreational Park, trekking up Gunung Serapi, explore one of the many trails in Kubah National Park and the Matang Wildlife Center, visit the remote and rarely visited Sri Maha Mariaman hilltop Hindu Temple, or onwards to Lundu and Sematan towns with its beaches and further on to the turtle islands and Tanjung Datu National Park all nearby when compared to visiting from Kuching City.
The Kebun’s location makes a comfortable return day trip to all these attractions.
