Hey there,
Depend on u wanna go for Sabah and Sarawak, or just Sabah only.
For Sabah, there are many island trips to Tunku Abd Rahman park at Kota Kinabalu. Besides, shouldnt miss Mt. Kinabalu which is a world heritage. For viewing orangutan, Sepiloh at Sandakan is the best location. Other attraction: Mabul Island, Semporna, Sipadan island.
If u head for Sarawak from Sabah, then u may need to catch flight from KKinabalu to Miri or Kuching, and for Miri to catch another flight to Mulu Caves tat is another world heritage in Borneo. For Miri, attractions are Niah Caves and Lambir National park.

Hey,
I think childly1979 has given you great advice.

Depending on where you want to stay - Sabah has great home stay options as well. Try Kundasang for a home base for Mt. Kinabalu, and try www.sabahtourism.org for home stay info near the Kinabatangan river. You'll be able to see wild orangutan. I found that the few minutes of seeing the apes in the jungle was much more rewarding than the sanctuary.

Enjoy!
