VICTORIA & ALFRED HOTEL | CAPE TOWN
The Victoria and Alfred Hotel offers charming colonial ambience in a central, prestigious location on the pier-head of the world’s most famous working harbour - the famed V&A Waterfront. This exceptionally elegant hotel occupies a converted historic warehouse and boasts 94 exquisitely designed contemporary rooms. If you are seeking luxurious accommodation, world-class hospitality and spectacular views of table mountain, look no further than this remarkable, historically rich, landmark hotel.
Nestled in 200,000 hectares the 12 en-suite, solar powered tents are raised on comfortable decks, each with a private veranda overlooking the lagoon and floodplains, stretching towards the un-fenced boundary of the Moremi Game Reserve. The open-plan lounge, dining and plunge pool area complete the warm welcome to our guests. Community members from the nearby Khwai Village make up the majority of staff.
Victoria Falls River Lodge is the first private safari lodge to be set in the Zambezi National Park. This luxury canvas-under-thatch lodge is situated on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River – so close to Victoria Falls one can see the spray in the distance. Guests can combine a unique safari experience with visits to one of the world's most famous tourist destinations. The main lodge has an open plan design and is positioned just back from the river – in view of the elephants' natural evening route. Sit back and sip on a cocktail, under the shade of the thatched roof, as the elephants graze along the river line.
Comprising 13 300 ha (33 000 acres), MalaMala shares a 19 km (12 mile) unfenced border with the world-renowned Kruger National Park, and lies strategically sandwiched between the National Park and the Sabi Sand Reserve. MalaMala has been custodian of this massive thriving tract of land since 1927.
Every aspect of the MalaMala Main Camp is designed to appreciate and enjoy the view of the surrounding wilds. Pathways wind their way along the perimeter of the camp to reveal individual ochre coloured units tucked into the greenery which flanks the Sand River. Massive trees and rolling green lawns are filled with birdsong, with the occasional antelope or elephant which seeks the succulence of greenery. The camp is unfenced – an oasis in the middle of the bushveld.
Accommodation is provided in luxury thatched bedrooms, featuring climate control and insect repellent, tea and coffee making facilities, hair dryers, mini-bars and on-site safes, as well as direct dial telephones. Rooms are spaced in such a way that guests are guaranteed the space and intimacy that only a smaller reserve can offer. Each lodge offers guests a unique experience with state-of-the-art facilities, high-end decor and furnishings, delicious cuisine, and impeccable service standards.
There are no typical days at MalaMala – each is different based on the wild animals and their movements and no return time to camp is the same. Rangers will take full advantage of cheetah hunting or a leopard feeding in a tree and obviously the guest’s requirements are considered.
MalaMala’s location in relationship to the Kruger National Park is significant. The unfenced eastern boundary with the Kruger National Park allows wildlife to move freely onto MalaMala and many of the territorial animals such as leopard, lion and rhino will have a territory overlapping a portion of both reserves. MalaMala’s river frontage running north to south is the lifeblood of the reserve, especially in the dry winter months. It is also an important boundary between the areas of human habitation on the western bank of the river and the pristine wilderness area of MalaMala on the eastern side between the river and the Kruger National Park. When animals move it is often due to water. Wildlife moves from the 4 million acres east of the Sand River, through MalaMala to the river and back again resulting in two way traffic across the reserve where we conduct our safaris. The land of the Eastern side has no access roads, no electricity pylons, no telephone poles and no cables etc. There is no human habitation between the Sand River and the Kruger National park boundary so for approximately 16 hours a day, this area is left to the wildlife.
AZURA BENGUERRA ISLAND | BAZARUTO ARCHIPELAGO
