Book a luxury hotel in Africa with Small Luxury Hotels of the World and watch sinuous cheetah on a game drive on the Serengeti Plains of Tanzania. Snorkel over coral and tropical fish from a dhow moored on the Indian Ocean, or try a crisp Cape wine in South Africa’s Stellenbosch Hills.
Luxury city breaks in Africa
Get a feel of Nairobi’s rich past at the Kenya Railways Museum, with its Victorian steam trains, and look out for rhinos lurking in the National Park. Zanzibar’s Stone Town’s tall coral rock houses line its cool narrow alleys, leaving a small patch of blue sky overhead. Table Mountain rises majestically behind Cape Town and the city’s boutiques, seafood restaurants and century-old Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden.
Luxury beach and countryside retreats in Africa
Drive up to a tea estate in the highlands outside Nairobi and gasp where the vast Rift Valley drops hundreds of feet away at your feet. Surf on Bloubergstrand (Blue Mountain Beach) on Cape Town’s Table Bay and drive along Route 62 past boutique wineries and gabled Cape Dutch farmhouses. Bask lazily on the pristine white sands of Benguerra, an exclusive tropical island off the coast of Mozambique.
