The Trail of the White Rajahs
Sarawak, an ancient land of headhunters, was ruled for exactly 100 years by the Brooke family, known as the 'White Rajahs'. The incredible adventure of the Brooke family began in 1838, when James Brooke sailed from Singapore aboard the schooner 'Royalist', arriving in Kuching to find the settlement facing a tribal uprising against the Sultan of Brunei. Offering his aid to the Sultan, Brooke and his crew helped bring about a peaceful settlement, and Brooke was granted the title of Rajah of Sarawak in return. Today there are no longer any wars or uprisings in this peaceful land, but the romance of discovery and navigation continues with Raja Laut. Following in the Brooke's footsteps you will embark in Singapore, exploring tropical islands enroute, and arriving in Borneo by sail, just as they did in past centuries. We will cruise up the Sarawak River to Kuching, where you will explore the vestiges of the Brooke era, experience Borneo's wildlife sanctuaries, national parks, colourful local markets, and the Orang Utan sanctuary. This sojourn will leave you enlightened by the spirit Borneo.
