One of the most memorable parts of my latest trip to Malaysia was the vast amount of wildlife I got to see. Bats, sting rays, barracuda, eagles, pythons and birds all made up part of the trip, but the main highlight for me was the monkeys on Langkawi. I had the rare opportunity to capture these beautiful animals close up on camera and am so chuffed with the photos that I wanted to give them their very own blog post!
We stumbled across this pack of monkeys after walking out of a bat cave during our mangrove river boat tour with Langkawi Nature. I have never been so close to monkeys in my life and it was absolutely fascinating to watch time grooming each other on the trees and generally just chilling out. They weren’t phased by humans at all and were obviously very used to it because of the tourist crowds. We were told to hold on tight to our belongings as they are notorious for snatching valuables out of your hand. I took these photos with a firm grip!
