Things to Do in Sandakan
In the heart of the mangrove forests of Semawang in Sandakan, the Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary is a privately owned reserve where visitors can observe these rare and distinctive creatives that are indigenous to Borneo.
It’s estimated that approximately 300 wild monkeys live within this six square-kilometer sanctuary. There’s also plenty of other wildlife here besides the proboscis, with silverleaf monkeys and some fascinating birdlife, including hornbills, calling the reserve home. Many visit the Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary on a day trip, although overnight stays are also possible, with night tours giving visitors a chance to see fireflies, wild boars, flying squirrels, and crocodiles. Booked in advance, it’s possible to combine the monkey’s feeding time with other activities, such as jungle treks or even a boat trip to a nearby fishing village.
