When it comes to wildlife spotting, it doesn’t get better than Borneo. Home to an array of aquatic species, and most famously a population of Orangutans, Borneo is a flourishing island of flora and fauna. August is one of the best times to visit Borneo as the iconic wildlife is in full bloom and the climate is at its most temperate. Head to Danum Valley in Sabah for the best chances of spotting the island’s orange tree-dwellers.
Whilst August might not be the best month when it comes to weather in Colombia, it’s worth visiting in this month to make the most of the awe-inspiring Festival of Flowers. Taking place in Medellin, the festival sees Colombia’s capital transformed into an explosion of vibrant color. Visitors can enjoy concerts, street parties, and a host of craft markets.
Located on South America’s west coast and boasting a dazzling array of mountains, jungles, and cities, Ecuador is one of the best destinations for adventure and wildlife in August. Birders will be awe-struck by the volume and diversity of bird species and there are numerous ways to incorporate this aspect into an unforgettable August Ecuadorian adventure.
August is the best time to visit India due to the perfect meeting of bearable temperatures and fantastic deals on flights and accommodation. Whilst technically off-season, visiting India in August affords a range of unique luxury travel experiences. The city of Jodhpur is particularly vibrant at this time of year, and is awash with blues and pinks.
