Where to go on holiday in August

Every August as part of the Great Migration, the largest mass movement of animals on land, thousands of wildebeest and zebras cross the treacherous Mara River and into Kenya’s Maasai Mara in search of fresh grazing and water supplies. To be able to witness this incredible natural spectacle will make that special occasion all the more memorable.

Nature lovers can also plan a city break to the charming Canadian city of Vancouver to coincide with the arrival of pods of Orcas who come to the waters of the Strait of Georgia during the summer months.
