On this day-trip from Sandakan you will discover two of Borneo's iconic primates, orangutans and long-nosed proboscis monkeys.
The Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary offers another perfect Proboscis monkeys observation spot. It is a chance for any travellers who wants to have a closer look at these very special monkeys and do not have the time to travel too far away to watch them.
