Meet and greet at requested pick up point or hotel. Proceed for 45 minutes to one hour drive to Labuk Bay Resort. The final stretch of the drive takes you through graveled roads and jeep tracks of plantation estates. Labuk Bay Resort consists of over 400 acres of mangrove forest which was initially purchased for commercial development. After realizing that the natural habitat of these monkeys were rapidly diminishing, due to large areas of the mangrove forest being develop for “bakau” wood, agriculture and aquaculture, the plan was quickly dropped so that these monkeys could continue to survive there without fear of losing their natural habitat.
Upon arrival, proceed to the observation area, visitors will have the delight of having a reasonably close and magnificent sight of these elusive monkeys. Found in most coastal areas of Borneo, they live in groups of 11-32 and almost exclusively in mangrove forests near fresh water and in lowland rainforests. They are mostly arboreal (tree living) but have been known to leave the trees in order to cross open ground, or pass through nipah palms. With its characteristic pot belly, huge pendulous nose with strange honking sound, it is one of the most peculiar animal in the world. Viewing session is at 0930hrs (platform A) and 1130hrs (platform B)
