MAY

Where to book now

South Africa 

Start planning your luxury family holiday to South Africa now – with opportunities to spot the Big Five and sleep under the stars, South Africa will always be one of our most popular destinations for the whole family. Discover luxury lodges, malaria-free camps and cosmopolitan Cape Town. Most of our top accommodation provide a range of activities for children and adults alike.

Antarctica & Arctic

Book your place on our once-in-a-lifetime solar eclipse cruise as spaces are limited, or if you can’t wait until 2021, enjoy one of our top expedition cruises to the Antarctic or Arctic in 2020. Witness some of the most rugged and challenging landscapes on the planet. Amid desolate frozen landscapes survives an amazing diversity of wildlife. And you’ll be there in the thick of it.

Argentina Solar Eclipse 2020

Witness the grandeur of a full solar eclipse on this exciting adventure. Start off in buzzing Buenos Aires before leaving the bustling city for lush Argentine countryside. Explore the picturesque town of Bariloche, famous for its European-inspired architecture and stunning mountain views. Round off this unforgettable trip by viewing a total solar eclipse at a luxurious rural estancia.

British Columbia, Canada 

In the vast forests of British Columbia lives one of the highest concentrations of grizzly bear in the world. The best time to go is undoubtedly autumn, when the salmon-rich rivers draw grizzlies out into the open. As this is a bear watching mecca, stand-out lodges get booked up well in advance, so we advise booking now.

Where to go in May 2021

Southwest USA

A place of extraordinary beauty all year round, America's South West bursts into life during the spring. Vibrant wildflowers peek their heads above the desert dust, their varied colours complementing the beautiful red rocks and pastel-blue sky. 

India: Himalayas and the sun in Tamil Nadu

May is a warm month with fewer visitors at the national parks and landmark attractions. This is one of the most comfortable times for visiting the Indian Himalaya or tea-producing regions such as Darjeeling, Shimla and Dharmshala. Alternatively, embrace the sun in Tamil Nadu, which offers a blend of cultural discovery and beautiful beaches.

Costa Rica

Tropical temperatures mean that Costa Rica is pleasantly warm all year round and in springtime, the dry season is perfect for outdoor exploration. Verdant rainforest walks, lazy afternoons on the velvet sand and snorkelling along the Caribbean coast – these experiences and more are yours to enjoy in the golden sunshine.

Russia

By the summertime, Russian snows have been seen off by sunny days and warm, comfortable evenings. This is fantastic for sight-seeing holidays as more daylight means more time to explore fascinating cities such as Moscow and St Petersburg. Open-air markets hum with activity in the warm weather and the area is alive with local street music.
