Borneo Weather in April

April is a shoulder month with calmer weather, a transitional time between two monsoons, making it perfect for beaches and trekking with less chance of rain storms. Sabah is hot, about 29 degrees centigrade, but can stay quite dry meaning that bolting a bit of beach onto your wildlife adventure is a great choice, especially for the beaches of Kota Kinabalu and Gaya Island.

Kinabatangan River, Borneo

Sarawak, in general, receives much more rain than Sabah (up to 260 days per year), so when we say ‘dry’, please bear that in mind.

Being just before the peak season, we highly recommend booking as far in advance as possible if you plan to travel in April to ensure you get to stay at your preferred accommodation.
