Luxury in Africa

Luxury in Africa

Luxury means different things to different people. Many associate it with great comfort or service; with being surrounded by beautiful things. For others the idea is more esoteric: it might mean pure exclusivity, or refer to something that gives a lot of pleasure but cannot be done often.

Here, on this website, we’re using the label of ‘luxury’ to focus on places where comfort is at its most tangible: accommodation with high-quality interiors, great facilities and top-class service that make you feel truly pampered – for the ultimate in comfort and care.

Africa has a lot of possibilities. Our luxury offerings range from exclusive safari lodges and smart tented camps to private villas and stylish hotels. Whether you want to safari in Africa’s amazing environments, to relax at the beach, or even to visit one of its vibrant metropolises in great style – we can help to plan the perfect luxury holiday.

There are only a small number of high-end lodges in Malawi, but these are small, intimate and very comfortable – and so have what it takes for a luxurious holiday. Despite the stunning swimming pools and breath-taking views, none are really ‘mainstream’. But for ‘off the beaten track’ luxury, Malawi could be just the place.

Mozambique is off the beaten track. The tourism industry is currently still developing and many establishments focus on sustainable hospitality.

Luxury in Rwanda

Luxury in Rwanda

Rwanda offers striking scenery, diverse wildlife and great cultural experiences – but until recently, very little luxury. However, in recent years several smart lodges have opened, mostly with an eye on gorilla-trekking in the Virunga Mountains. As the cost for trekking permits reaches new heights, more of these are now setting their sights solely on the most upmarket of travellers.
