2days 1night camping at Manau Camp, Bau, Sarawak

After a few months holiday and spending my holiday time in my room as I am too afraid to go out because of Covid19, I decided my first outdoor activity is camping. I posted my camping idea on my Facebook and then one of my friends, contact me to invite to join him camping at the new camp site. I said yes immediately.

He did not tell me the details where we will camp but just informed it is a new campsite will be opened soon. It is called Camp Manau. I am proud to say I am one of a few persons who stayed at the Camp Manau before it is officially opened. 

Camp Manau is around 2 hours drive to Kuching and it is located at the middle on nowhere in Singai, Bau. To go here, we rode the 4WD Hilux as it is the off road. All I can say, the road is really adventurous especially after or during raining. You really need a high skill driver and get ready with any towing equipment in case of emergency.

The objectives to camp out here actually to help out the owner and the travel organization clearing up some space such as cleaning the grass, woods, bamboo for the camping site area. We also help to transfer the water tank. 


Just for your information, Camp Manau will be managed by Nomad Campers. Nomad Campers is a series with Adventure Alternative Borneo which offers nature lovers a camping retreat to places that can only be covered by 4x4 off road vehicles. Nomad Campers offer comfortable camping facilities while having to enjoy nature in its natural state. Kids can also enjoy this camping style.


So, if you ask me if this place open to public or not, the answer is not. To stay here, you need to buy the package from Adventure Alternative Borneo. As I was told, the package will included the transportation 4x4 off road, all the camping equipment/tent (they will set up for you), and foods (breakfast, dinner, lunch 2x). But then, for the barbeque, you can barbeque by yourself but everything is ready by the Adventure Alternative Borneo. The concept is like glamping, but the place is privately far from town and exclusive just for you. This also will help the local community to generate some incomes through their tourism products.


I will update again after the official opening. As for our trip, we just use our own camp and the original setup of the camp will be not like this. It is more beautiful and grand. 

As our main job is to clear the campsite, felt so tired as I did not work this hard a few months. LOL. I clearing the bamboo, cutting the tree. collected all the dry leaves and organizing the stones. It was tired but I was glad that I went out. Too much playing games did not so healthy as I gain almost 10kg for the past 5 months.

At night, we had a barbeque. Nice, feel relax and calm. The next morning, we enjoyed swimming at the river. Unfortunately, it is raining season, and the color of the river is brown. I was told, when is not raining, the water is so beautiful. It is okay, I will be back here for sure.

Sorry if I did not took many photos as my objectives here just to relax and enjoy the fresh air. Actually, the plan is we want to stop at Oyak Muot waterfall unfortunately the weather is not that promising and we end end directly go back home.
