January to March
Set the tone for a year of jet-setting with a visit to the Dubai Shopping Festival. In February, spend Celebrate Valentine’s Day on the paradise island of Zanzibar. Or head to Ireland in March for an authentic St Patrick’s Day experience in Dublin, where the Guinness flows free.
April to June
As the weather gets colder, it’s the perfect time to head to KwaZulu-Natal for a cosy getaway. In April, the Midlands is at its most gorgeous and romantic, while in June, Durban comes alive with the excitement of the Comrades. Or grab your football jersey and cheer your team to victory at the English FA Cup Final, taking place in May.
July to September
This is the best time to take advantage of the European summer, with events and festivals galore. Watch tennis legends trade shots in Wimbledon during July, or take your own shots at Spain’s La Tomatina festival in August. In September, head to Hermanus for the great whale migration.
October to December
As the year winds down, celebrate Diwali with a colourful trip to India’s Golden Triangle. Book your seat in Abu Dhabi for the nailbiting close of the Formula 1 season. Close your 2019 off with a spectacular Christmas Cruise on the Indian Ocean.
