Orangutans are one of the most lovable animals on the planet and for good reasons too. If you’ve always dreamt of seeing orangutans up close, June is your perfect window of opportunity. It’s sunny in Sabah and fruiting season in the rainforest, drawing the wildlife out of the foliage as they forage for sweet treats. And it’s not only orangutans!
You can visit the Bornean Sun Bear Sanctuary, watch turtles lay their eggs on the beaches of Selingan Island, and spot crocodiles, proboscis monkeys and pygmy elephants along the banks of the Kinabatangan River.
Critters aside, Borneo is simply beautiful. Snack on spicy street food in cosmopolitan Kota Kinabalu, soak up the sunshine on the beaches of Gaya Island, trek through the rainforests of the Danum Valleys and feel like a castaway on Lankayan Island. If you’re feeling intrepid, you can climb Mount Kinabalu – the highest mountain in South East Asia – and watch the sunrise light up the hills below.
