In 2015, superyachts were given the green light to visit Borneo as the area was declared “safe and peaceful” as most of the country was removed as a War Listed Area by the Lloyds Joint War Committee. The change is expected to mean that more superyachts will venture to make the most of the country's stunning nature and incredible diving.

Here Raymond Heer, captain of 42.5m Feadship charter yacht Angiamo, gives insiders tips on getting the most out of a visit to wildlife-packed Sabah in northern Borneo.

1.Kinabatangan River

It’s incredible, but you can take a yacht with a seven metre draught up the Kinabatangan River if you get a permit. Wildlife comes to the shore and you’ll see proboscis monkeys, orang-utans and best of all, three herds of the Borneo pygmy elephant — almost extinct. Their territory has been squeezed by palm oil plantations, so their only natural track in the forest is along the river.
