This indeed is lovely place. 2 different feeding areas. Plenty of monkeys. Great documentary. But if pressed for time and going in or river cruise, can skip this if pressed for time.

This was very nice experience. We came very close to the monkeys. These monkeys are wild, but are given food on regular basis. (4 times per day) It might feel a bit touristy, but it was nice to see the monkeys interact.

Love the proboscis monkeys. This place is a bit further out of town and as it’s a private where a bit more expensive to enter (60 ringgits). The porboscis seem to be waiting around for the crowd and literally posing for photos. I found them...More

It's great that these endangered monkeys have a sanctuary here but it is sad as the entire area surrounding the sanctuary is just palm oil plantations. If you come around feeding time you will see plenty of Proboscis at either of the platforms and possibly...More

Compared to Sepilok for orangutans, this is a much more informal place. Staff is hardly visible. The two feeding platforms are connected by a dirt road, so it isn’t really built for walking. There is a film, but it wasn’t played when I was there...More

No. You'll need to hire a taxi for the day (which is quite reasonable) and they will shuttle you from place to place & wait for you. There is virtually no public transport around Labuk Bay.
