August

August is peak travel season, so it pays to book well in advance.

August is peak travel season, so it pays to book well in advance for the best choice of hotels. There’s wonderful weather across Europe and North America, or you could fire your children’s imagination on an African safari or Asian exploration. 

August is the month we flock to Europe’s beaches –  luxury hotels in southern Italy, Turkey, Portugal and Spain will be alive with the sound of happy families enjoying a well-earned summer escape. Want to escape those crowds?  Searching for orangutans in Borneo or witnessing the Perahera festival in Sri Lanka offer some far-flung and adventurous alternatives. Explore the nature and aboriginal culture of Australia’s Top End or live out your cowboy fantasies on an American ranch holiday. Track elephant or rhino on a walking safari in Zambia or head to Namibia for congregating wildlife and superb desert stargazing.
