Sabah, located on the northern point of the island of Borneo, is the second largest state in Malaysia.
Sabah, when translated in Malay language, is spelt as 'Sabah, negeri di bawah bayu' which means 'Land below the wind'. Its name derived from being located just below the typhoon prone region of the Philippines. The state is one of its own, as its 'botanical heaven' contains some of the rarest plants on earth, such as Rafflesia and Nepenthes.
Kinabalu, the highest mountain in South East Asia at 4095 meters is also situated in Sabah. The region is also known to protect endangered species such as Sumatran Rhinoceros, Orang-Utan, Proboscis Monkey, Pygmy Elephant, Mousedeer, Flying Squirrel and Barking deer.
Sabah is a place where you will find tropical rainforests, luscious beaches, delicious Malaysian cuisine, and the welcoming spirit of the Malaysian people.

David is a great guide, knowledgeable and hard working. His enthusiasm in showing us parts of Sabah was fantastic. The fact that he is a talented wildlife photographer, and has supplied many wonderful photos of the animals we saw is a bonus. We had a lot of fun, and learnt a lot about the jungle's fauna and flora.
