Botswana: The rains have stopped and the floods start to reach the Okavango Delta, transforming the Kalahari Sands to lush green waterways and attracting wildlife from miles around. It’s not peak season yet so cheaper than July-October, but still a really great time to come here.
Madagascar: If you’d like to come to see Madagascar when it’s quieter, yet still good for lemurs and other wildlife, May-June is a good time.
Malawi: It is the dry season in Malawi so a great time for wildlife. Hot and sunny so also good by the lake yet still reasonably green.
South Africa: This is winter in Kruger and the days are dry and warm, with cold nights. It’s a great time for wildlife viewing here as well as in KwaZulu Natal’s Hluhluwe-Umfolozi, and Madikwe in the northwest.
Zambia: May is one of the best months for the Liuwa Plains and for shoebill storks in Bangweulu.
Ecuador & Galapagos Islands: The Galapagos Islands offer a year-round wildlife spectacle which is hard to beat. May is warm and clear. On North Seymour blue-footed boobies are mating. 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.
Peru: By May Peru is coming out of the wet season, yet it’s not too busy and the weather is generally very good. Whilst the Amazon and cloudforest is still quite wet underfoot, wildlife viewing can still be good.
Madagascar: The rains have gone and the idyllic tropical beaches beckon.
Malawi: What about a lakeside break with lots of watersports or just space to chill out? Lake Malawi has some really gorgeous beach lodges, some on tiny islands.
Mauritius: Mauritius is good most of the year, with May to December being the best months for avoiding tropical storms. Excellent beaches and many superb hotels.
Mozambique: The rains have abated, and the southern beaches of Bazaruto archipelago would be good place to come.
South Africa: The eastern region of KwaZulu Natal has stunning coastline. Try rustic cabins at Kosi Bay or luxury lodges of Kosi Forest or Thonga Beach.
Costa Rica: May is mostly still a good month to come to Costa Rica without hitting too much rain. So Atlantic or Pacific beaches await you.
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: Head for Mpumalanga region, west of Kruger, to see sights like the Blyde River Canyon, Bourke’s Luck Potholes and God’s Window on the so-called Panorama Route. This links nicely with wildlife viewing in Kruger. The Cape is cooler with some rain, but it’s still a great place to come for sightseeing in Cape Town, the Garden Route and Winelands.
Ecuador: May is a pleasant time to visit Ecuador whether you want to visit Indian markets and colonial cities such as Cuenca, or hike in the Andes or take in the Galapagos.
Peru: Come and explore Peru’s Incan and colonial history and find out about modern life in Cusco, the Sacred Valley, Arequipa, at Lake Titicaca …
Jordan: May is still a good time to come to Jordan. Head for Petra, Crusader castles and the Dead Sea.
Madagascar: Many people don’t know that Madagascar is a great place for hiking
South Africa: The Cape region is cooling now but always good to visit. KwaZulu Natal is hot and sunny, so walks, cycling, horse riding and other activities would be excellent. Combine with some beach time or a safari for an exciting African adventure.
Costa Rica: May in Costa Rica is still mostly dry and it’s great for lots of activities from zip-lining to horse riding, walking, wildlife viewing and climbing volcanoes!
Ecuador: Try hiking in the Andes, exploring the Amazon, taking a train ride through the Andes, and maybe combine all this with time in the Galapagos Islands.
Peru: It’s a good month to be in Peru. Why not try something really different and raft the source of the Amazon?
Bhutan: Try some trekking in Burma and Bhutan. It’s the dry season so a perfect time for this.
