What You'll Do
  • Travel on a wooden open-deck boat in the heart of Brunei's capital
  • Pass by the amazing water village, the largest of its kind in the world
  • See Istanan Nurul Iman, the Sultan's spectacular palace, from the water
  • Take a safari through the mangrove trees, and admire the splendid scenery
  • Keep your eyes open for some of Brunei’s exotic wildlife
  • Spot the strange and brightly-coloured proboscis monkey, found only in a few areas worldwide
  • Reflect on an exciting day outdoors on the comfortable ride back to your hotel
Discover the weird and wonderful proboscis monkey on a boat safari through underneath Brunei’s beautiful mangrove trees. Along the way, see the Istanan Nurul Iman, plenty of impressive local wildlife, as well as the world's largest water village.
What to Expect
Our tour starts with the pick-up from your hotel and transfer to the boat jetty in the capital city. Board an open deck wooden boat and cruise along the river sightseeing from the water level. This experience will give you a view of two different worlds – on one side of the river you will see the modern developing capital city of Brunei and on the other side, you will see a traditional-style water village, the biggest of its kind in the world.

Your river safari will also pass the biggest residential palace in the world, Istana Nurul Iman. Consisting of 1788 rooms, the palace is the official residence of His Majesty, The Sultan of Brunei.

After passing the Royal Palace, we will start to cruise slowly under the mangrove trees and get up close to look at the marine life that lives here. See mudskippers, monitor lizards and with a bit of luck spot blue throated or red kingfishers. The white egret and night heron are also common sights in the mangroves.

Keep an eye out for the rare and endangered proboscis monkey, which usually comes to the water in the early morning and evening. The monkeys are very distinctive with their odd, brightly coloured nose and can otherwise only be found on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra in Indonesia. Hopefully you will see at least five to ten families of around 20 monkeys per family.

The tour ends with a transfer back to your hotel.
