Mpala Jena Camp

Victoria Falls - Zimbabwe

Lodge and restaurant in a private game reserve. Mpala Jena means “white impala”, a mythical animal once seen in the Zambezi National Park. It is also the name of the springs that attract so many wild animals year-round to the edges of the camp's four tents. Under the light shade of tall trees, Mpala Jena Camp sits languidly in a Moroccan-inspired setting. Featuring recycled wood and canvas as well as solar electricity, its presence on the banks of the river is meant to be as light and discreet as possible. A paradise for experienced or amateur birdwatchers, it combines the pleasures of safari, plunge pools with views of the rapids and adventures to Victoria Falls, a mere fifteen kilometres away. ...

Zambezi River in a dugout canoe

Zambezi River in a dugout canoe

Feel unique as you float in a dugout canoe along the Zambezi river: home to hippos, crocodiles and varans.  You sail right at the river level, at the pace of the wildlife. With all of your senses alert, feeling the vibrations of the river and the slightest noise or movement, concealed in the vegetation above the banks. Was that a buffalo … or an elephant maybe? Surrender to nature, fragile yet content...

Bathing near Victoria Falls

Bathing near Victoria Falls

Forming the natural border between Zambia and Zimbabwe, Victoria Falls are the largest in the world! So impressive are the power and the noise of the water that the locals called it: Mosi-oa-Tunya, meaning "The smoke which thunders." During the dry season from August to January, the Zambezi's riverbed lowers to form the "Devil's swimming pool" on the Zambian side - a natural cavity beside Livingstone Island. This reservoir is great for swimming and boasts unrivalled views of the entire site.

ol Donyo Lodge

Chyulu Hills - Amboseli - Kenya

Lodge and restaurant in a private game reserve. Wake up to snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro and the distant roars of lions. ol Donyo Lodge is a pioneer amongst safari lodges, and a forerunner of sustainable tourism: by working with the local Maasai people, it has been able to blend conservation and livelihood benefits. On the slopes of the Chyulu Hills, this lodge blends contemporary and traditional design. To stay here is a chance to explore Africa in an uncommon way – by horseback or four-wheel drive, on foot or in a hide twenty paces from some of the largest elephants in the world. ol Donyo Lodge enjoys a stunning location, with the savannah at its feet stretching as far as the eye can see. This is the Africa of the mind's eye. ... Learn moreless

Horseback safari

Horseback safari

A sign of ethical tourism in this part of Kenya, a horseback safari has so much to offer with many unique memories to be made. Riding on the savannah means you can get up close to the wildlife. You'll really feel a part of the landscape among zebra, antelope, wildebeest and giraffe. A gallop through these vast expanses brings a feeling of freedom that you will remember forever. 

Night under starry skies

Night under starry skies

An "Out of Africa" journey … In the small hours, open your tent to be greeted by Mount Kilimanjaro. Sleeping under the stars in a tent (for 2), to the spellbinding soundtrack of the savannah, and in the shadow of Africa's highest mountain … does it get any better than this? Safe in the "open" lodge enclosure with keepers on patrol, listen to the exciting night song... In the early morning glow, the very first outlines of the wildlife are a sight your eyes will store for a long time...

Mara Plains Camp

Nairobi - Kenya

Lodge and restaurant in a private game reserve. On the northern border of the Maasai Mara, you’ll find Mara Plains canvas tents are tucked away amongst the lush vegetation on the banks of the Ntiakitiak River. This camp is one of the smallest in the region and offers the opportunity to get really close to nature and the local wildlife in the heart of a private conservancy with a very low density in vehicles and with abundant big cats. Your safari programme is customised and very flexible – it is organised on a daily basis so that you can make the most of the unique experiences that nature constantly offers. The traditional safari-style tents, which are raised on decks and have a marquis ceiling, blend into the beautiful countryside and offer sweeping views of the savannah. ... Learn moreless

Ntiakitiak River, "theatre" of the setting sun

Ntiakitiak River, "theatre" of the setting sun

Standing on the banks of the River Ntiakitiak as the wildlife files past at sunset, you get a sense of how the animals are all one big family, each with their own role. Cheetahs, lionesses and leopards prowl silently, crouching nearby in the vegetation before pouncing on the closest, weakest prey. In a flash, the sweet scene is transformed into a fury for the zebra and antelope. Such is life on the savannah. A sight that is frightening and hypnotising all at once.

Maasai traditions

Maasai traditions

Beyond the majestic landscapes and photo safaris, the chance to share some moments in the daily life of the Maasai people ends up being a truly moving experience. Discovering the scattered villages, culture and unique traditions of the Maasai gives a better grasp of what life is like here. Your unexpected hosts are so proud and generous that they will figure highly in your trip memories...

Zanzibar White Sand Luxury Villas & Spa

Zanzibar - United Republic of Tanzania

Hotel and restaurant on the seafront. Zanzibar White Sand has set its anchor down along the eastern coast of the archipelago of Zanzibar. In the heart of a luxurious ecosystem, the establishment has had the finesse to integrate itself in complete discretion. Each villa is nestled in tropical vegetation, refreshed by the Indian Ocean, and has a living area of 500 sq. meters located within a 1500 sq. meters lush garden for complete privacy. The restaurant serves local fish and produce from the vegetable garden, which are subtly enhanced by the famous spices of Zanzibar that may also be found as the foundations for the spa's original treatments. Whether diving or kitesurfing, the warm turquoise waters of the beach are the ideal playground after a safari on continental Africa. ... Learn moreless

Meander around the alleyways of Stone Town, Zanzibar

Meander around the alleyways of Stone Town, Zanzibar

Narrow and winding alleyways, doorways worked with copper nails and suspended balconies, Stone Town offers travellers a unique atmosphere. With its Arabized architecture, part of the old town is classed a Unesco world heritage site. By chance, we find memorial sites for former slaves, we come across the figure of Livingstone in the middle of a swarming and joyful crowd…

The sound of the taarab, Zanzibar

The sound of the taarab, Zanzibar

Some places in the world can be identified by their sounds alone, they are intrinsically linked to an instrument. The taarab was born in Zanzibar from Arabic, Indian and African influences. Although guitars and keyboards now often replace the violin and Arabic oud, the words are still focused on love (with a double meaning). You will be carried away by the energy of the groups performing at the Culture Musical Club…

20 Degrés Sud Boutique-hôtel

Pointe aux Canonniers - Mauritius

Hotel and restaurant on the seafront. A delightful colonial mansion, nestling in a coconut grove right at the water’s edge, is home to a tastefully appointed, charmingly refined little hotel. The soft, neutral shades of Flamant Home Interiors furniture in its individually designed guest rooms stand in brilliant contrast to the blue of the sea and green of the coconut palms, instilling deep feelings of peace and seclusion. The restaurant, also at the water’s edge, serves delicious creole and international dishes. However 20° Sud has two more treasures in store: the M/S Lady Lisbeth, the oldest motorboat on the island which, when evening falls, takes a party of guests to dine under the stars on the calm waters of the bay. ...

This part of Mauritius offers all the fun of the seaside: from lazing on the sandy beach to thrill-seeking on the water. Kitesurfing, windsurfing and sailing - Grand Baie enjoys an inshore wind, sweeping across from the lagoon to the mouth of the bay. Diving fans can grab a tank or go snorkelling at the many diving spots.
