Your gateway to the wonders of Borneo!
Sabah is a state in the far north-eastern section of Borneo, known for its lush forests and world class dive sites. For a jungle experience and the chance to see wild orangutans in Malaysia, head to Danum Valley.
This reserve has changed little over the years and is a top spot to see orangutans in the wild, while staying in luxurious Ecolodges such as the Borneo Rainforest Lodge.
For keen hikers, standing at 4,000m is Mt Kinabalu, offering ambitious treks both around its base and to the summit. In contrast, for those looking simply to relax, head over to Gaya Island and unwind on the white sand shores.

Sabah, a gem in the heart of Borneo, is rich in cultural diversity and natural wonders. It's a haven for wildlife enthusiasts, with unique species like the Bornean orangutan, sun bears, and the Proboscis monkey.
Its natural landscapes are a marvel, from the majestic Mount Kinabalu, the highest peak in Malaysia, to the stunning coral reefs of Sipadan Island, offering unrivaled opportunities for diving and snorkeling.
Sabah also offers a taste of authentic Bornean life through its indigenous tribes, their vibrant traditions, and cuisine. The warmth of its people is just as captivating as its scenic beauty, making Sabah a truly special place to visit.
The ideal length for a trip to Sabah depends on the breadth of experiences you wish to encompass.
For a comprehensive exploration that includes the key highlights - such as climbing Mount Kinabalu, diving in Sipadan, exploring the Kinabatangan River, and visiting an orangutan rehabilitation center, plan for at least 7 to 10 days.
This allows time for travel between destinations, rest, and full immersion in the diverse offerings of Sabah.
However, a shorter stay of 3 to 5 days can still provide a memorable experience, focusing on select attractions.
Sabah has a tropical climate, with temperatures ranging from 26°C to 32°C year-round. The region has two primary seasons: the dry season (May to September) and the rainy season (November to March).
The dry season is typically the best time to visit for outdoor activities like hiking Mount Kinabalu or wildlife spotting along the Kinabatangan River.
However, the rainy season brings its own charm, greening the landscapes and offering cooler temperatures. For divers, April to December tends to offer the best visibility around Sipadan Island.
Remember, weather can be unpredictable in the tropics, so it's always a good idea to be prepared for rain whenever you visit.
