My Travel Recommendations

  • Marataba Safari Lodge

    Marataba Safari Lodge

    Location: South Africa - Waterberg
    WHY I RECOMMEND IT

    "One of the few reserves in South Africa with a backdrop of a mountain range providing stunning scenery as you enjoy your leisurely game drive in search of the Big 5. The rangers here report seeing pangolin too! Book rooms 9, 10 or 11 for an elevated view over the water."

  • 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."

  • 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!"

  • 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."

  • Mara Intrepids Camp

    Mara Intrepids Camp

    Location: Kenya - Masai Mara
    WHY I RECOMMEND IT

    ""Canvas tents set in safe, shaded lawns provide the perfect escape for families with children - a great option for a family safari holiday.""

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.
