Follow in the exploratory footsteps of Ernest Hemmingway by setting out across the plains of Kenya, where you can intermingle with wildebeest and zebras on a thrilling game drive in the Masai Mara and then dine by moonlight against the most spectacular backdrop imaginable.
Take a short river crossing to arrive at Little Governors' Camp, made up of seventeen luxury en suite tents overlooking a scenic watering hole; as the name suggests, the exclusive Elephant Pepper Camp is the ideal base for those with a particular interest in getting up-close with the most majestic animal of them all. If you're in search of an especially stylish retreat, the nine villas at Sasaab in the Samburu National Reserve combine distinctive Moroccan-influenced decor with expansive vistas.
Safari and Beach Combinations
What could be better than a holiday that brings together the absorbing thrill of a safari with the soothing qualities of the ultimate beach break? Spend the beginning of your holiday tracking game and your last few days sinking blissfully into the sand, snorkelling through the coral reefs or cooling off in fresh, clear waters.
Plan a holiday that starts in the South African bush, before moving on to the sandy beaches of Mauritius via vibrant Cape Town - or even one of the many picturesque islands dotted along the Eastern coast. You may choose to split your time between Zambia - where you can take a walking safari across the plains of South Luangwa - and the welcoming shores of Lake Malawi.
South African Safari
A wealth of choice awaits you when it comes to planning a South African safari. From the mountain ranges and alluring beaches of the Western Cape to the self-drive appeal of the Winelands and Garden Route and the captivating scenery of the Kruger National Park, choose the combination that best suits your sense of adventure.
Located on the Little Karoo wine route, the Sanbona Wildlife Reserve, home to the only self-sustained prides of white lions in the world, comes highly recommended. For a true 'back to nature' experience, stay at Jaci's Safari Lodge & Tree Lodge, where the rooms boast charming thatched roofs; romantics, on the other hand, will swoon over the French baths, private plunge pools and dramatic draped ceilings at the Savanna Private Game Reserve in Sabi Sand.
An incredible shared family experience, a romantic encounter or simply an unforgettable adventure - whatever type of luxury safari holiday you wish...
