Wildlife Area Nature / Park
Visit the home of the island's most iconic natives at Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary. Founded in 1994 by a benevolent developer, the reserve protects around 60 of the seriously endangered primates, supplementing their diet and keeping track of their numbers. Visit the center at feeding time to watch the families of these pot-bellied, large-nosed monkeys emerge from the jungle, and take a walk across the reserve to observe them searching for food in their natural habitat. Put Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary and other Sandakan attractions into our Sandakan vacation route planner, and watch your holiday take shape.
