Mount Nelson

Mount Nelson

Nestled at the foot of Table Mountain, and set in nine acres of lush gardens, the Mount Nelson Hotel is one of Cape Town's most elegant hotels. Rooms are spacious and elegant – each with a mini-lounge area and en-suite bathroom – and the hotel’s facilities include a top restaurant, chic champagne bar and a full-service spa. Located opposite the Company Gardens and Houses of Parliament, the Mount Nelson is ideally located for enjoying everything Cape Town has to offer.

Royal Livingstone Hotel

Royal Livingstone Hotel

Stretching luxuriously along the banks of the mighty Zambezi River, the Royal Livingstone consists of a series of colonial-style buildings set amidst a canopy of lush riverine trees. The hotel offers thatch-roofed buildings, a sparkling swimming pool, well-stocked library and a deep, shaded veranda offering an uninterrupted view of the Zambezi. And only footsteps from the river, the sumptuous rooms and suites—with interior furnishings that accentuate the influences of Africa— offer a tranquil retreat from the unconstrained beauty of their surroundings.

Fairlawns Boutique Hotel & Spa

With its palatial suites set amongst rolling gardens and secluded courtyards, Fairlawns is a favourite of Europe’s royals. The spa's serene Balinese gardens are not to be missed, nor are the top-flight spa treatments befitting this splendid retreat. Should you wish to quit the tranquility of the grounds, the thriving suburb of Sandton awaits exploration.

Norfolk Hotel

Norfolk Hotel

The essence of luxury since 1904, the Norfolk is the legendary hotel from which many safaris have embarked. The spirit of past adventurers such as Teddy Roosevelt and Ernest Hemingway linger romantically in the air here, particularly on the Delamere Terrace where explorers and locals alike have gathered for drinks and safari tales for generations. And of course, the hotel features everything you’d expect from a world-class property: impeccably-appointed rooms, a health club with gym, sauna and steam room, beauty salon and book shop to name just a few. Renovated in 2004, the hotel combines the best of both worlds—modern elegance and old-world charm.


Lake Manyara Escarpment Luxury Lodge

Perched on the edge of the rift wall and overlooking the spectacular lake and gorge is Lake Manyara Escarpment Luxury Lodge, where it's not uncommon to see masses of pink flamingos mingling. Spacious chalets dot the grounds, each with a separate bedroom and lounge, leather sofas, canopied bed, deep soaking tub, indoor and outdoor showers, luscious appointments and a private deck with a view of the lake—in short, an idyllic setting in every way.


Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge

An architectural marvel, the Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge is built on the rim of the undisturbed eastern side of the crater. Designed to reflect the vastness of the African bush, it has no conventional windows, instead featuring huge walls of glass in both the public areas and guest suites. The breathtaking panorama of the crater—not to mention the luminous sunset—is brought into the very heart of the lodge. Guest accommodations are suites that include a spacious solarium overlooking the crater.

Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti

Already well supplied with safari-style elegance, the rebranded Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti is a delightful escape in the heart of the Serengeti. Spacious, lavishly appointed rooms feature original artwork and private decks. We browse the art gallery, luxuriate at its world-class spa, and lounge in the infinity pool while watching wildlife drink at the nearby water hole. Private ranger and butler services make this heavenly African experience yet more luxurious.


Mara Explorer Tented Camp

A thickly-forested, private peninsula yields a lusciously secluded backdrop for this luxury camp nestled in the heart of the Maasai Mara. Ten generously-spaced tents fronting the wildlife-packed banks of the Talek River are done with gorgeous mahogany furniture, and all have ample double-sink bathrooms with modern touches. Claw-foot tubs on the tents' outdoor decks permit stylish open-air bathing and game viewing and meals made with the camp's garden-grown ingredients can be enjoyed from several serene bush spots.

ngare thumb

Ngare Serian

Brimming with African character, Ngare Serian is a small camp—six tents and a homey dining and lounging tent—that we reach by a rope bridge across the Mara River. Serian is an archetypal unfussy, informally welcoming, tranquil camp. Hippos frolic on the Mara, game drives out of Serian are superb, and the camp’s tents—as comfortable as a five-star hotel’s choicest rooms—were designed by someone who has safaried enthusiastically and wisely.
