For bivouacs, as we usually do in the tropics, we use hammocks with integrated mosquito nets. This allows us to sleep cool enjoying the night breezes while being out of contact with the ground. We stretch tarpaulins over the hammocks to be protected from the rain. But, if you prefer to sleep under tent, no problem, specify when booking

IMPORTANT: For this stay, we use Nautiraid folding kayaks, known for their strength, reliability and stability, as well as their large loading capacity. But we use single kayaks from Trak Kayaks
These kayaks can be transported by plane, and we take them from France with us. This limits the weight of your personal belongings to about fifteen kilos and obliges us to fly with companies offering a large baggage allowance like “Emirates” “Qatar Airlines” or “Etihad Airways”. But no problem, in Palawan it’s hot, so it’s easy to travel light … In case your departure point is different from the accompanying guide, we send you your kayak and equipment to your home .
A few days before your departure, you will receive via UPS your kayak in his bag.
So you can fly with and meet other participants and guide directly to Kuala Lumpur or Langkawi.
When you return, simply return the boat to us using the shipping slip we have given you.
