Visitors are always welcome to Opai Sama eco-farm for whatever purposes but preferably a WWOOFING (Willing Workers On Organic Farms) stint. It will offer you a truly unique experience of Orang Ulu or Sarawak indigenous ways of living experience.
How to get there? – At the moment we’re not that accessible to the outside world. The best way to get to Opai Sama eco- farm is by Sarawak’s rural dirty, dusty and slippery logging road via Bintulu.
If you’re not familiar with this type of road, please [ contact us ] a few days before your plan visit so that we can arrange for transportation. The journey takes about four-hours.

The more adventurous, but very tiring alternative is via Sama river. The distance is less than 60km from Punan Sama longhouse on the Rejang river bank. But the fast flowing, rugged, slippery rock surface along the river inevitably slow down movement to a crawl.
Occasionally you’ll have to pull, push and drag your longboat on shallow waters. However it can be fun too.
Things to do – There are lots of things that would keep you busy from helping us in the field, orchard to a lazily doze around the waterfall to the sound, smell of nature. Or you can join us on a hunting and foraging trip into the forest for foods.
That should keep an independent traveler and those with an adventurous spirit occupied and entertained. Opai Sama is not intended as a resort, a lodge, a commercial chalet tour or a hotel. This is a residential family own eco-fram community in its formative year.
In essence, Opai Sama is a rustic, yet comfortable, private retreat off the beaten path where owners and limited numbers of guests can explore the natural wonders of the rainforest and enjoy a simpler life.
Opai Sama life is not for everyone – if you are unaccustomed to life on the outer fringes of civilization, life at the farm is certainly not for you. It’s can be hard physically and mentally.
In order to preserve the integrity of the community, the environment, and everything that has created this special closely-knitted community, there are things to know about to ensure that you and all members of your group are comfortable in this environment prior to beginning the Opai Sama journey.
But once you embark, we hope that you enjoy all that the farm has to offer. It truly is a place like nowhere else on Earth!
