Climate (Borneo)

We recommend you check weather conditions before you depart. The region generally has a tropical climate with monsoon rains for part of the year. However, the word ‘monsoon’ should not deter you – travelling during the monsoon can be the most rewarding, with lower tourist numbers and lush growth of the landscape. Usually the monsoon involves a downpour late in the day, which is heavy but short lived. Freak weather conditions could result in delays, changes or in rare cases, cancellations to sections of your itinerary.
