Labuk Bay Sanctuary Half Day Tour

The Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary offers another perfect proboscis monkey observation spots for any tourist who wants to have a closer look at these very unique primate.

In the heart of the mangrove forests of Semawang in Sandakan, the privately owned Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary allows travellers to observe the rare and distinctive proboscis monkeys in their natural Borneo habitat. Labuk Bay represents an interesting approach to aiding these charismatic animals and thus far it appears to be working. With the 400 acres of mangrove forest, it's estimated that about 300 wild monkeys live within this 2.3-square-mile (6-square-km) sanctuary, which includes two observation areas for visitors.

If you love taking close up pictures of the Proboscis Monkey, this is the best place. Currently there are 3 family groups and 1 bachelor group in the sanctuary. You could spent the entire day simply admiring these enchanting primates. A chance to see Silver Leaf Monkey, Pig tailed Macaque, Oriental Pied Hornbill, Otter, White-bellied Woodpecker and Kingfishers too.
