Sabah

Visit Sabah

Introduction

Viewing wildlife - both on land and in the clear seas along its coast - is the major attraction of Sabah, a state of a similar size to Ireland.

Most people arrive in Kota Kinabalu and from there the dense rainforest, craggy mountains and abundant reefs can be easily reached.

The russet-furred orangutan, whose name means ‘man of the forest' in Malay, is the best known of the incredible creatures to be found here, but proboscis monkeys, sea turtles, saltwater crocodiles, a wealth of bird species and enormous rafflesia flowers should not be missed either.
