The rafting experience is undoubtedly the best that me and my friends had in Sabah.
Knowing the course like the back of his hand, Arie guided us through out every inch of the rafting trip. All I had to worry is if I had fully enjoy the ride. Certainly a must go in Sabah.

Today we went rafting with wavehunters. It was so much fun and a adventure i wont forget so soon. The instructions were understandable even for beginners in level 3-4. They saved us after a upside-down very experienced. So we had not one minutes to worry about something. I would totally doing it again if i ever come back to Borneo and i can highly recommend it to everyone who lives meeting fun people and a little action.
Many thanks to Ari and the other guys who managed it 🙂
