Watching Monkeys In Borneo

January 1, 2016 | Author: | Posted in Outdoors

If you’re staying in Sabah in Malaysia on the island of Borneo, it’s highly likely you’ll have heard of proboscis monkeys. They are wild, they live in the jungle and they have long noses. But more importantly they are native to the island of Borneo (Malaysia, Brunei Darussalam and Indonesia). This is the only place on planet earth that you can see them outside a zoo. It’s worth doing, and naturally it’s a popular touristy thing to do.

Best way to organise monkey watching in Borneo

There are lots of companies offering these types of tours in Borneo so it will be easy enough to organise. If you are a really tight budget backpacker then you could realistically hitchhike or hire a car and drive out to Beaufort Town yourself then try to blag onto one of the boats that take you to where the proboscis monkeys are. I really don’t recommend it.

What price is it to see the Proboscis monkeys?

Overall you should expect to pay around 60 Ringitts. This includes almost everything you need on the tour such as boats, transport there and back and of course the afternoon tea and the buffet dinner. It is a really good trip well worth booking!

How do you get to Klias Wetlands Park for watching Proboscis Monkeys in Borneo?

Transport was comfortable and efficient and all included in the tour. It was a small mini-bus we got. It took us from Kota Kinabalu to the venue.

Getting to Klias Wetlands Park should be easy enough – our transport was included in the tour and it usually is. It’s in the heart of the jungles of Borneo but this doesn’t stop the whole trip being amazing. It makes for an incredible experience even just getting there.

You will see other types of monkeys without the long noses such as this one. It’s not a proboscis monkey.

At the end of the tour you can also eat in a buffet dinner on the boat or by a restaurant beside the river. Overall, the monkey experience of Borneo is quite brilliant and worth travelling out to. You may never get another chance in life to see such curious wild monkeys in the wild. Have a safe and enjoyable trip out there everybody and happy travels to each and everyone of you.
