June weather & where to go

During June the trees are fruiting and brave orang-utans are venturing closer, sometimes down to the forest floor to pick up these tasty treats. This is one of the best times to see orang-utans in the wild Sabah, Borneo as they dare to come closer in return for some delicious fruit. Alongside this, winds from Northern Australia bring hot and dry weather to most of Sabah, making it an excellent time to head to the beaches of Gaya Island, Lankayan Island and Sipidan.

June is the start of the ‘dry’ season in Sarawak with an average rainfall of about 200mm. As always, there are chances of rain storms and unsettled weather across the whole of Borneo at any time of year, so waterproofs are always essential, and they are most common at this time in the afternoons.
