We spend an afternoon doing this trip and it was nice. We were not so lucky with the proboscis monkeys though, there were not much in sight during our visit but plenty of other wildlife species to see. The boat driver was knowledgeable and he took us inside the mangrove forest. It was so nice to breathe in the clean... More

We took two tours with Mark and Wann, one to the Islands and the next day on an evening safari tour. Mark has a wonderful eye for spotting animals and is determined to get you the best view for photos, a snack was included on both trips. Wann gives lots of information and history and they are both great guides.... More

We've done a river cruise with Mark and Wann. They are a really friendly couple who make the best out of your trip. We came especially for the proboscis monkey and we've seen many. They just know where to find them. It was amazing. We've seen all the things we wished for. Even the small animals which we never would... More

Well worth a morning or afternoon. A good boat driver will help you find monkeys, crocodiles and monitor lizards. The mangroves are an amazing sight.

This is one thing I really wanted to see during my 2 day stopover in Brunei. Established that the best time to visit was a couple of hours before sunset and so found myself on the docks about that time where I simply hired a water taxi (cost B$30 and I paid the driver an extra B$20 to stay on...

We were with friends at the waterfront and were very nicely approached by Wann, who co-owns a boat and tour company with her husband Mark. She had credentials to show us that she is trained and certified (by the Brunei Tourism Board, I believe), and we agreed on a reasonable price of BD40 for six of us to go on... More

We tried to book a mangrove tour through our hotel but the hotel rep kept telling us "He is only doing the National Park." So, we simply walked down to one of the jetties, hearing several men yell out to us to get us to take their boats. Once we got closer to the jetty in front of the mall,... More

I had heard about this trip since arriving in Brunei but have been putting it off. After 6 months I decided to go after a colleague said he had found a boatman who only charged 30 BND; about £15. I arranged the trip for 4pm so it would be finished before it was dark to avoid the mosquitos. We were... More

Elaine and I took a trip up the the river in a boat taxi it was $B40 to see the monkeys. We were out just over an hour, the driver took us all around the village on stilts and then on to the monkeys, Very exhilarating and most enjoyable. We stopped just where the monkeys were and watched for ten... More
