|In the centre of the mangrove forests of Sumawang is the Labuk Bay
Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary, where you can see Borneo's indigenous proboscis
monkeys. This privately-owned sanctuary located within an oil palm estate gives
you the chance to observe these animals up close and personal.
The remarkable males sport big dangling noses, reddish flat-top hairstyles, white tails and markings, and pot bellies. The females on the other hand, are much smaller and have up-turned noses.
A river trip can be arranged to further observe the monkeys or do some bird watching, as hornbills and kingfishers are found in the area. Take a night tour for a chance to see wild boars, flying squirrels, fireflies and crocodiles. The sanctuary also has a lodge with six air-conditioned twin-sharing rooms and a dormitory for those who wish to stay overnight.
The sanctuary also provides transfers, daytrips and overnight stays. You can also go through a local tour operator.
