Let’s do something huge. With the summer vacations in full swing, this is about family adventures and untrodden expeditions. Set your sights on something unforgettable.
We’ve hand-picked the ideas below to get your mind racing about where to travel in August. As ever, our luxury travel experts are on hand to give you detailed guidance and expert suggestions in choosing your trip.
Where to visit in August
August is the perfect month to discover Borneo’s dizzying array of wildlife. Plunge through ancient tropical trees and blooming orchids in search of macaques, tarsiers and proboscis monkeys or take a private boat to the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Center and get up-close and personal with the last of Borneo’s wild orang-utans.
The alternative safari destination. There’s less about wildlife here and a greater focus on landscape. With Sossusvlei, Dead Vlei, and the Skeleton Coast. Great for couples and older families, it’s one of the world’s best locations for stargazing. Choose Namibia for something very different.
This summer, we’re letting you in on one of Africa’s best-kept secrets. Morning game drives across the Savannah. Hippo-spotting canoe journeys on the Zambezi River. Helicopter rides above the roar of Victoria Falls. With so much variety, it is easy to see why Zimbabwe is one of our favorite intrepid safari destinations.
Our hand-picked recommendations for where to stay and what to do
