My Travel Recommendations

  • Ngoma Safari Lodge

    Ngoma Safari Lodge

    Location: Botswana - Chobe
    WHY I RECOMMEND IT

    "I love the expansive views over the floodplains, especially when the river is full and the small touches from a very hospitable team made me feel a sense of luxury but in an understated way. Its a little further to access from the airport and boat jetty but its worth for the views, privacy and lack of other vehicles when driving in the otherwise busy park."

  • Camp Okavango

    Camp Okavango

    Location: Botswana - Okavango Delta
    WHY I RECOMMEND IT

    "I loved the diversity of experiences, and the gorgeous spacious chalets are some of the most beautiful in the Delta but its the people that warmed my heart here at Camp Okavango."

  • Honeymoon Seychelles' Mahe Island

    Splendid Seychelles

    Location: Seychelles - Mahe Island
    WHY I RECOMMEND IT

    "Uber luxury at its best - I recommend this for someone who wants to be on the mainland to explore the islands but has discerning taste for only the finer experiences in life!"

  • Marataba Trails Lodge

    Marataba Trails Lodge

    Location: South Africa - Waterberg
    WHY I RECOMMEND IT

    "One of the most pampered and beautiful hiking experiences I have ever had; the scenery and accommodation exceeded my expectations but I wasn't sure whether to be disappointed or relieved we didn't have any animal encounters! Although rare, encounters are possible and hiking is definitely moderate with some steep ascends and descends, though depending on your group walks can be tailored to your fitness levels. I recommend combining with a stay at Marataba Safari Lodge for a dose of big game sightings and spa treatments!"

  • Kenya's Masai Mara Park & Conservancy

    Memorable Masai Mara Experience

    Location: Kenya - Nairobi, Kenya - Masai Mara
    WHY I RECOMMEND IT

    "Using owner managed & run properties, with the highest conservation standards & excellent private guiding, we recommend this adventure for abundant wildlife encounters and a range of activities."

I find that the diversity of creation expressed in Africa's people and places is so spellbinding that she somehow manages to both humble and inspire you; separating you from your normal and stirring in you a newfound point of view.
