East Africa: Many of the herds of the wildebeest migration are heading to the western region of Tanzania’s Serengeti so the west and central areas of the park is where to find them. It’s rainy, but this means it's quiet and you can get some good deals on prices.
Southern Africa: It is coming to the end of the green season in the southern African countries of Botswana and Zambia (late December to March/April). You’ll still find excellent birding opportunities, increasingly good general wildlife, plus great value on lodges at this time. In Zambia, even though it’s still wet, April is one of the best months for seeing shoebill storks in Bangweulu Swamps.
Ecuador & Galapagos Islands: The Galapagos Islands offer a year-round wildlife spectacle which is hard to beat. In April it is warm with clear seas, and it’s sunny though you might get some rain. Land iguanas start hatching on Isabela, sea turtle eggs also start hatching. This is also the start of the mating season (late April-December) for the waved albatross on Espanola. Combine this with time to explore the mainland to see the wildlife of the Amazonian rainforest plus the Andean regions with Andean markets and haciendas.

India & Nepal: If you can cope with the heat, April is one of the very best months for India and Nepal’s wildlife reserves, including the tiger reserves of Kanha, Bandhavgarh and Ranthambore amongst others. It’s hot and the grasses have died down so it’s easier to see wildlife.
South Africa: Head for KwaZulu Natal on the east coast of South Africa. There are some great beaches here, and you can mix this with many other activities such as wildlife and walking if you wish.
Costa Rica: April is still is a good time to come to Costa Rica as it is one of the drier months (December to about May). Chill out on either the Pacific or Atlantic coastlines and stay in a lovely hotel or lodge. If you decide you need more action that the beach can provide, there are lots of other activities to be found here, from zip-lining to horse riding, walking, wildlife viewing and climbing volcanoes!
India: If you are fine with relatively high temperatures, consider Kerala and Goa for a beach holiday. Average temperatures tend to be in the mid-30s, but can go higher.
Burma: Burma’s dry season is from roughly October to May, so you could head here for a little sightseeing and some relaxation on Ngapali Beach.
South Africa: The Cape is getting cooler with more chance of rain, but it’s still a great place to come for sightseeing in Cape Town, the Garden Route and Winelands. You could also head for Mpumalanga region, west of Kruger, to see such sights as the Blyde River Canyon, Bourke’s Luck Potholes, God’s Window and more on the so-called Panorama Route. This links nicely with wildlife viewing in Kruger.
Victoria Falls: April is just past the falls’ peak flow and it’s still very impressive.
Costa Rica: April is one of the drier months in Costa Rica (December to about May) and an excellent time to come and chill out on either the Pacific or Atlantic coastlines.
