June

Long sunny days in Europe are wonderfully complemented by sparser pre-summer crowds.

Europe comes into its own, so there’s no need to travel far for warmth. The long sunny days are wonderfully complemented by sparser pre-summer crowds. Many of the world’s national parks and wildlife sanctuaries are also joyous in June.

June is a superb time for African adventures. Enjoy an unforgettable encounter with the new-born mountain gorillas of Rwanda, or immerse yourself in the wacky wildlife of Madagascar. It’s peak season too for Botswana’s watery Okavango Delta. If you are not tied to school holidays then this is a great time to beat Europe’s summer crowds. Take to the waters for a spot of Greek island hopping or sample Portugal’s finest wines in the Douro Valley. Explore the ruins of Pompeii then take in the breath-taking coastal scenery of Italy’s Amalfi Coast.
