Where to go in April

Fed up with dodging April showers on the commute? Jet off to somewhere new instead – our well-travelled team have rounded up some of the best destinations to visit in April. Stay close to home and enjoy the spring flowers of the Netherlands, see the cherry blossoms in Japan, or maybe go all-out with an exotic adventure in little-visited Zimbabwe.

Our pick: the best places to visit in April

1. The Netherlands

April is prime time for tulip season in the Netherlands, particularly in the famous Keukenhof Gardens. Millions of bulbs burst into bloom, blanketing fields and parks in a rainbow of colours. Our Dutch Waterways river cruises take full advantage, with a day dedicated to exploring the tulip fields at Keukenhof (plus a guest talk on the ship from a horticulture expert).

2. India

April is one of the hotter, drier months in India. It can be too hot for some when sightseeing (temperatures get into the 30s in Delhi by mid-month), but it’s one of the best months for wildlife spotting – so if you’re keen to see tigers in Ranthambore National Park, now’s the time. You could also cool off after your tour with time in the hill town of Shimla – ask your travel advisor about our post-tour stay here.

5. Zimbabwe

April marks the end of the rainy season in Zimbabwe, so you’ll avoid the downpours but still get to enjoy the country at its lushest and greenest. Victoria Falls is also in full flow now, so it’s a real sight to behold. In terms of wildlife, it’s trickier to spot some species among the foliage (though you’ll still see plenty); on the flip side, this is one of the prime times of year for birdwatching.
