As this African country wasn’t part of the tourist trail until recently, it still has plenty of pristine plains for you to discover

Make sure that this is your best holiday yet by visiting one of these countries this month. Here is our list of where to go in September

 

ZIMBABWE
Everyone loves a safari – that is until they are stuck in a convoy of 4x4s and surrounded by yet more 4x4s. However, if you catch a flight to Zimbabwe this won’t be a problem. As this African country wasn’t part of the tourist trail until recently, it still has plenty of pristine plains for you to discover. Plus as it’s dry season at the moment you won’t have to travel far to see the animals as they will be gathering around the water holes.

#TakeMeThere Book a stay at Linkwasha Camp in Hwange National Park. This boutique hideaway that comprises just nine tents is set in an area that features more than 100 different species of animals. Take a 4×4 safari or discover the bush by foot. They relax by a wood-burning fireplace as you swap tales of your adventures.

CHILE

Who knew that one country could offer so much? From bustling Santiago to the plains of Torres del Paine National Park you know that you will have an adventure. This month is a particularly good time to go as not only is the weather getting warmer, but it’s Independence Day on 18th so you can expect lots of fun festivities.

#TakeMeThere Exploring Torres del Paine National Park? Then stay at the eco-luxe retreat of Tierra Patagonia. Whether you are kicking back in your bedroom, the lounge or pool you will be treated to jawdropping views of the mountains.

BORDEAUX, FRANCE

Wine lovers should catch a flight this month to Bordeaux as it’s harvest time. The picturesque French region is about to haul in the bounty that makes gourmands go weak at the knees. So pay homage to this vintage treat with a once in a lifetime wine tour.

#TakeMeThere Stay at the five-star Les Sources de Caudalie resort. Just in case you haven’t imbibed enough, this decadent spa serves up wine-inspired treatments that use treats from their own vineyards.

GUILIN, CHINA

With its striking limestone karsts, emerald green mountains and bubbling rivers, it’s no surprise that Guilin’s landscape has inspired many a Hollywood movie. And now there’s no better time to explore this breathtaking destination as the steamy summer has gone and has been replaced by cool breezes.

#TakeMeThere Leave your luggage at the Banyan Tree Yangshou. This picturesque resort that’s been designed to look like one of the river villages, gives you the chance to explore the area in style – including along the River Li upon the hotel’s private bamboo raft.

MAURITIUS

Who wouldn’t want to stay on this volcanic island filled with sugar plantations and sparkling lagoons? Particularly when they know that the rainy season is over and it’s just warm, dry days ahead.

#TakeMeThere Stay at Shanti Maurice – a super chic hotel that set on the beach and is surrounded by 36 acres of lush tropical gardens. Spend the day on a lounger gazing out over the aquamarine sea, or burn some calories in the waves, windsurfing, sailing or kayaking. You can always pamper yourself afterwards with a massage in the spa or one of its famed cocktails in the Rum Shed.
