August weather & where to go

August weather & where to go

As with July, booking early is essential to getting your perfect Borneo safari in August. With children still at large from the holidays in Europe, it can get quite busy. Weather in Sabah is typically Bornean, with bright sunshine, 28 degrees Celsius temperatures as average and some rainy days mixed in. Orangutans are still coming down lower to fetch fruit, so this is a great time for wildlife and trekking, and with lots of sunny days to be had, we suggest Lankayan Island, Gaya Island and the beaches of Kota Kinabalu for some relaxation. 

Turtle, Borneo

August is pretty dry for Sarawak, so the jungles, caves and beaches can be venture to, but of course, there is going to be the possibility of storms and rain at any time.

With such excellent weather, this is a wonderful time to explore everywhere from the Danum Valley and Kinabatangan River, to Sipidan and Kota Kinabalu.
