An excursion over the border into the Sarawak jungle to experience a natural mud spa in the heart of Borneo!


Experience a natural mud spring hidden in the Borneo jungle! Just an hour's drive from Brunei's capital, we travel over the border into Sarawak, Malaysia, to have fun in bubbling muddy pools - prepare to get messy! With normally over 20 active pools and many mud slides between them, it's an afternoon of enormous fun : )

Travelling by private car (up to 4 guests), we cross the border at Kuala Lurah, our destination another 30 minutes into the sparsely populated Limbang province.

Our Malaysian neighbours provide a modern car park and showering facilities, as our stepping off-point to a natural wonder with a properly messy afternoon of fun and therapeutic mud, complete with plenty of sulphur-smelling eruptions from deep in the earth!

N. B. This tour crosses an international border into Malaysia - please ensure you have the requisite Visa clearance to go and return (especially if you only have single visit Visa to Brunei, although for the majority of nationalities there should be no problem. )

Itinerary

1. Collection from your hotel/pick-up point.
2. Transportation in a private vehicle across the border to Limbang province, Sarawak, Malaysia.
3. Relax, unwind and have fun swimming in the mud pools (optional extra food and drink upon request).
5. Return transportation in a private vehicle across the border back to your Brunei drop-off point.

THINGS TO BRING:

Passport
Swimwear (wear under your clothes or change at the mud spa facilities)
Towel (I will provide a second towel per person, for the mud splatters whilst at the spa!)
Light fitting clothes for the trip
Insect repellent (the area is pretty much mozzy free, but after heavy rains there can be a few critters around. . . )
Trainers/flip-flops for the walk are sufficient
Camera to record your memories : )
A sense of adventure haha

Please note this trip is weather dependant. After heavy rains the paths can be slippery/extra muddy so better footwear advisable. If it is raining heavily at the time of departure, it may not be suitable/so much fun to go.
