Jungle River Safari + Proboscis Monkey (boat ride & wildlife)

 

Tropical mangroves are a rich repository of numerous species of trees and other plants as well as being an essential part of nature’s erosion prevention and filtration system, particularly vital in ensuring the continued health of coral offshore. But they are perhaps most well-known for harbouring an interesting selection of wildlife, such as mangrove cat snakes, crocodiles, monitor lizards and perhaps the most curious of all, the proboscis monkey. Endemic only to certain parts of Borneo, these monkeys became known for their bright-orange brown coats, long white tails, and the protruding noses on the adult males. Head into the mangrove wilderness in an open boat for an adventure to spot these, and perhaps even more!

Pick-up/Drop-off within BSB & its vicinity include all town centre hotels and locations, as well as hotels and locations at Mile 1, Kiulap, Gadong, Mata-Mata and Berakas, and excludes Jerudong and other areas. Kindly enquire on your location to be sure.

As a nature/outdoors tour, there are many variables which are beyond our control, such as the weather conditions, and the availability and abundance of wildlife spotted. We do not guarantee sightings, but do ensure we do our best by setting tours at times of day which are known to be good times for sightings, and we also choose areas where sightings are most often reported.

Duration of tour is calculated beginning from pre-arranged pick-up time to the pre-arranged drop-off time, unless otherwise stated. As a guided tour, timing and duration of visits and stops are pre-arranged, and any requests, demands or expectation for longer durations will not be entertained. Guests requesting pick-up and drop-off from Jerudong and its vicinity (Empire Hotel) will have tour commencement half an hour earlier, and end half an hour later.

Guests with special needs/conditions requiring assistance may be accommodated. Kindly state special needs/conditions at time of enquiry.
