GLAM GETAWAYS IN AFRICA
The ideal destination for luxury lovers
Going glam in Africa
Let’s face it, sometimes you just need a bit of luxury and some seriously indulgent R&R. You might not realise it, but Africa is the ideal destination for luxury lovers. It’s home to stunning, über-glam properties, set amid some of the most remote and spectacular scenery on Earth.
We can match you up with the most splendid and stylish properties under the African stars. Instagram fans will be in heaven, with a stunning new tableau or jaw-dropping scene at every turn. Your Insta feed will never be more swoon-worthy. Endless romantic pampering experiences also await, from private game drives, sunset cocktails and intimate candlelit dinners, to flower petal-strewn bubble baths for two in your outdoor roll-top bathtub, personal butlers and dreamy couples’ spa treatments.
For more glamour, opt for a bush-and-beach holiday and combine an unforgettable safari with a city break in dazzling, cosmopolitan Cape Town. Or perhaps a package that combines the “Three Cs”: an urban escape (“city”), a safari (“canvas”) and a brilliant beach finale (“coastline”). There’s nothing more glamorous than ending your safari holiday with some time at a tropical beach paradise on the exotic island of Zanzibar or an Indian Ocean island such as Mauritius, Seychelles or the Maldives.
If you’re planning a romantic holiday with the most special person in your world, below are some of the most glamorous places you can stay.
Wolwedans Premier Camps: Namibrand Nature Reserve, Namibia
Wolwedans Premier Camps are set on a vast 22,000-hectare private nature reserve that’s also an international dark sky reserve (aka the ultimate stargazing location), offering a landscape of red dune belts, gravel plains, mountains and ‘inselbergs’. It is incomparable to anything you have ever experienced. The powerful silence of this world desolation beckons your soul. Wolwedans is simply out of this world.
Summer evenings are cooled by refreshing west winds, while winter mornings make for exceptional photography with layers of fog in the desert. Here you discover two exclusive experiences that combine to create the most immersive journeys through this desert wilderness. Go ‘exclusive’ at Wolwedans Private Camp and Mountain View Suite or stay at the beautiful Boulders Safari Camp.
Sasaab: Samburu, Northern Frontier, Kenya
Sasaab is our little secret paradise in Kenya’s Northern Frontier District. This is a place of rich natural diversity with an impressive number of big animals like elephant, cheetah, leopard and lion and the Samburu special five – Beisa oryx, reticulated giraffe, Grevy’s zebra, Gerenuk antelope and Somali ostrich. Sasaab’s architecture follows Moroccan principles taking the African heat into consideration to ensure you a comfortable stay all year round.
The property is set on the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River with spellbinding views towards the jagged peak of Mount Kenya. This wild landscape amongst the culturally proud Samburu tribe offers true romance. Here you can indulge with treatments at SpaSaab and stay in massive 100 square metre suites with private plunge pools, safari game drive morning and night, head out on foot and camel ride plus fly-camp.
Sundy Praia: São Tomé and Príncipe
Sundy Praia is located on the island of Príncipe that floats off the west coast of Africa in the Gulf of Guinea. The islands of São Tomé and Príncipe make up Africa’s second-smallest nation. This is the ultimate island escape and you will discover an intimate experience with nature, on the very edge of the ocean surrounded by tropical rainforest. Sundy Praia sets a new benchmark for tented sophistication.
This place creates the perfect balance between nature, design and comfort. There is space inside and out, private terraces and easy access to the beach. The pool bar with infinity pool awaits and the relaxed atmosphere will see you dreaming about extending your stay. Here, you’ll find true romance and adventure above and below the ocean where rainforest borders golden sand and turquoise water.
Legendary Serengeti Camp: North Serengeti, West Serengeti & Maswa, Tanzania
Legendary Serengeti Camp allures guests with its luxury under canvas. It’s located in Tanzania’s largest national Park, the famous Serengeti. It promises the beauty of inky blue skies, burnt orange sunsets, soft neutrals of the African savannah and impressive great migration sightings.
This is a mobile tented camp set up with pure understated luxury in mind and it has different sites based on the migratory route of the wildebeest. Everyone enjoys the privacy of their own guide and vehicle and a luxury tented room with ensuite. By day you’re on safari with your guide and by night it’s campfire stories or romantic dinners under the stars.
