Observation Area A
A huge open area wooden platform and a long wooden walkway meandered over a swampy mangrove area. You were able to see lots & lots of Proboscis monkeys at this sanctuary in fairly close proximity. And the food provided by the ranger is guava and cucumber.

Observation Area B
Platform B is also the venue where Silver Leaf Monkeys occasionally visit. They would often come unannounced. They might come three to four times a week during the feeding time. So visitors will have to keep their finger cross if they want to meet this cute little silver colour monkey. Their small infant sports a different colour altogether in the colourful orange to gold hue. Platform B is also often visited by a pair of Oriental Pie Hornbills. So visitors not only get to see Proboscis Monkeys, they also have a good chance to encounter with the Silver Leaf Monkey and Oriental Pie Hornbills. No wonder most foreign visitors who have visited the Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary, gave the place a big thumb up.


In the afternoon Platform A feeding time is at 2:30pm and for Platform B the afternoon feeding time is 4pm. While waiting for the feeding time to commence in the afternoon, visitors can spend sometime at the Nipah Cafe for drinks as well as meals like noodle, rice, and popular Chinese dishes. The view around the Nipah Cafe is a pristine wetland that is surrounded by tall nipah trees.
There is also a big TV room with air-conditioning for visitors to relax in.
