  • very friendly, made from 4 pm, the probocis is moving and you can see them jumping off in the trees we paid 350 000 PR for the boat and the guide (who does not speak English but who knows very well or go to see the monkeys) www.

  • Wow ..... mangroves here about 150-250 hectares wide and is still well preserved. Its location is approximately 30-40 minutes from the city centre. For the boat ride we have to pay Rp. 300.000 RP. But it will be reciprocated with panoramic views, see the proboscis monkey is being directly active in the morning/afternoon. Once in a while we have to stand in line waiting for the boat, but not for long because there are several boats provided here and adapted to the number of people going up.

  • Mangrove Center is indeed lying rather difficult reachable from major roads, but no need to worry, this place can be reached with the help of google map. It lies indeed in the housing estate. Even the Mangrove Center is maintained by the citizens of the housing. I was pessimistic, it turns out the experience that I got was very impressive. Mangrove in the center, we will be taken to a boat ride down the mangrove forests. Wooden boat fair can contain many people. My husband and I venture to rent a boat, which costs 300,000 rupiah with other visitors. No need to worry about the issue of safety, the driver of the boat already experienced and they require us to wear a vest vest that you have prepared. The boat could be filled at maximum 10 people. Come late afternoon around 4 pm, then we can see a lot of the proboscis monkey monkey was out foraging. Really valuable experience, when else could see the original monkey Kalimatan i.e. proboscis monkey in its natural habitat. I highly recommend to visit with friends and family.

  • Beautiful scenery of mangrove on the river run. Seeing bekantan on its actual habitat is a rally good bonus.
  • One of my favourite place for mangrove forest. For bekantan awesome picture , don't forget to bring camera with high zoom lens. In my experience, Good to start your journey on early morning after sunrise or late afternoon before sunset. The bekantan go out for food this is a golden time to see this primata.
  • Natural edgy mixes for Mangrove trees area within its environmental surrounds the small villages and housing complex as wildlife breeding there and swampy spots to visits for outdoors adventuring moments
  • It's so nature..beautiful n fresh..the local people is so nice.
  • Its beautiful place to see the bekantan or proboscis monkey by canoe trip with Kalimantan Tour Guide
