A Proboscis Monkey tour . This popular tour consists of a leisurely cruise through the mangroves in search of the wild Proboscis Monkey which are found only in Borneo. Before entering the mangrove forest we will pass the famous Kampong Ayer and Sultan’s Palace (Istana Nurul Iman).

This tour is designed for you to see and understand the habitat and ecology of this elusive creature which has excited the curiosity of visitors to Borneo since colonial times. The pendulous pink noses and potbellies of the adult males reminded locals of Europeans, and this gave them their local name of Orang Belanda, or “Dutchman”. Local populations have been decreasing and they need your help to prevent them from becoming an endangered species. Your experienced guide will explain how you can help to protect the proboscis monkey.
