Bako is also home to approximately 275 rare proboscis monkeys, found only in Borneo. The male is an odd-looking creature, with a huge pendulous nose and a large pot-belly, weighing in excess of 20 kg. Both male and female are covered in reddish-brown fur with grey limbs and a white tail. They are mostly arboreal (tree-dwelling), moving about the forest or mangroves in small groups and feeding on young leaves, shoots, sour fruits and seeds. Although it requires some patience, an encounter with a group of proboscis is likely to be the highlight of your trip to Bako.
Pick up from hotel and drive about 35 minutes to Bako Village. From the village, take about a 25-minute boat ride (depending on the tide) to the park situated in a peninsula. Bako is one of the best places in Sarawak to see wildlife in natural surroundings. The various types of animals that are commonly spotted at Bako include the proboscis monkeys, silver leaf monkeys,long tail macaques, wild boars, monitor lizards, flying lemur, snake and numerous species of birds.
The tropical rainforest ranges from mangroves to kerangas (heat forest), tropical swamp vegetation, cliff vegetation and beach vegetation.
There are several trails inside the park depending on level of fitness and interest.
