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.
Baby turtles are likely to be hatching now too, making this one of the prime times for a combined wildlife and beach safari.
