Watching Proboscis Monkeys In Borneo

By Jonny Blair

When you decide to head to Sabah, which is a Malaysian part of Borneo you will be sure to hear about the Proboscis monkeys and want to visit them and see them live in the jungle. This is the only place you can see them in their native habitat in the world so it is worth doing.

How to organise watching Proboscis Monkeys in Borneo.

You'll have guessed that Borneo has lots of jungles and therefore lots of tour companies organising these monkey trips (and Orang Utan ones). To book a trip to watch the proboscis monkeys, you are better to book it through a tour company. If you're staying in the city of Kota Kinabalu like me, just pop into one of the many tour operators in town and book it.

How much do you pay to watch these 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!

What is the best way to get to the Monkey Park? How can we get out there?

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.

What is watching Proboscis Monkeys in Borneo all about?

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.
