A colourful time of year

From Kyoto to Kiev, cities around the world burst into Autumn colour in October. In winter, wildlife abounds in Chobe National Park and the Kruger, babies lemurs are being born in Madagascar and Uganda’s dry season makes for ideal primate viewing. Meanwhile, festivals like Chinese New Year, Mexico’s Day of the Dead and Kumbh Mela in India add a whole new cultural dimension to your adventure. Find out more about where to travel in October. 

Looking for something special?

We’ve pulled together 15 once-in-a-lifetime experiences to tick off your bucketlist this winter, from sailing down the mighty Nile in a traditional felucca to coming face-to-face with mountain gorillas in Uganda. Read our top 15 bucketlist experiences here.

Travelling in winter makes sense
