Sabah

"The Land Below The Wind"

Sabah is one of the two Malaysian states located on the island of Borneo and known as the “Land below the wind” simply because of its location just below the typhoon belt. In most cases Sabah is the first destination travellers head to when visiting Borneo for the first time. Sabah’s capital city Kota Kinabalu is the major hub from where travellers can explore everything this beautiful state has to offer, including its beaches, the pristine rainforest areas and wildlife sanctuaries. Visitors are invited to immerse in the local food and culture which is diverse and deeply rooted within the Sabahans. 

Sabah has countless attractions for all types of travellers. Some of them are:

  • Mount Kinabalu which peaks at 4096m
  • Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre 
  • The Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre (BSBCC) in Sepilok
  • Selingan island (often referred to as Turtle island)  just off the coast of Sandakan. 
  • Sukau at the Kinabatangan River, one of the best spots for wildlife watching in South East Asia
  • The Danum Valley with its award winning Borneo Rainforest Lodge,  nestled in between some of the oldest remaining rainforests in the world.
  • Gaya island just off the coast of Kota Kinabalu

Sabah has a large number of tour options available. If you are a little overwhelmed by it all or can’t see what you are looking for just ask our  Borneo & Beyond specialist to suggest suitable itineraries.
