Borneo weather & when to go: July
Favourable weather conditions combined with school holidays make July a popular time of year to visit Borneo. Expect warm sunny days, blue skies and minimal rainfall throughout Sabah and Sarawak.
July's weather in detail
Kota Kinabalu, Kinabalu NP, Kinabatangan River, Danum Valley, Sepilok, Gaya Island, Lankayan & Selingan Islands, Mabul & Sipadan Islands
Typically July is one of the driest months of the year across Sabah with plenty of blue skies, sunshine and hot temperatures. Dive conditions around Gaya Island and Lankayan Island are near perfect with warm water and excellent visibility up to 40 metres. Turtle season continues on Sipadan Island and the orang-utans are still foraging for tasty treats in Danum Valley and along the banks of the Kinabatangan River.
July coincides with the main holiday season meaning early booking is essential, especially as many of Borneo’s lodges are small with limited availability.
