Accommodations Visited

I can’t think of a better way to spend two weeks than trekking gorillas in Rwanda, exploring the open plains of the Serengeti and unwinding at a beautiful beach resort on the Island of Zanzibar. Expect excellent personal service, unique hand-picked properties and a front-row seat to awe-inspiring views, prime game-viewing action on safari and, of course, the final spoil of unwinding in a luxury Swahili styled getaway resort.
