Let’s start with a classic. Botswana's ‘Green Season’ sees the incomparable Okavango Delta at its lushest and most colourfully beautiful. Yes, there is water everywhere so game is dispersed over a larger area and in thicker cover, but the bush is alive with young, and the high lodge rates are also reduced.

In India, the monsoon heat has long since receded, the national parks are open for business and the Christmas hordes have yet to descend. We think November might be the perfect month to discover this, the most evocative country on earth.

In Europe, the medieval city walls and towers of the Estonian capital Tallinn look even more romantic when coated in snow.

No wonder we have bonfires in November – it’s to keep our hands warm. You could be doing that over a Bondi barbie in Oz, of course.
