Make your way to a jetty in the center of BSB, or opt for pickup at your hotel in Jerudong or at the airport, then board a river boat for a trip into Brunei’s mangrove forest.
You’ll travel past a sprawling network of water villages, the largest in the world, and follow a winding river as it narrows into mangrove channels. Move quietly through the forest, stopping frequently to watch for elusive proboscis monkeys, and listen for the sound of tropical birds that thrive in the lush canopy.
As you travel, the guide will introduce the basics of mangrove ecology, introducing the plants and animals that thrive in the watery environment.
Turn back upriver on your way to Bandar Seri Begawan, and pause along the way to walk through the water village, following a maze of walkways to a local house for light refreshments. This 2-hour tour concludes with drop-off at the original departure point.
