Legend Mangrove Cruise (Proboscis Monkey & Fireflies) Excursion

The proboscis monkey (Nasalis larvatus) or long-nosed monkey, known as the bekantan in Malay, is a reddish-brown arboreal Old World monkey that is endemic to the south-east Asian island of Borneo. It belongs in the monotypic genus Nasalis.

The monkey also goes by the Malay name monyet belanda ("Dutch monkey"), or even orang belanda ("Dutchman"), as Indonesians remarked that the Dutch colonisers often had similarly large bellies and noses.

To witness this extraordinary monkey, Sabah has a few places that offers visitors to see these monkeys in the wild. At Kota Kinabalu area, one can see these monkeys at Kota Belud (North of Kota Kinabalu), or Beaufort (Southwest of Kota Kinabalu). Where as at Sandakan, you may find them at Kinabatangan River or Labuk Bay Sanctuary.
