MORE SHADES OF BLUE

We are pleased to announce that Alphonse Island is now open year-round to travellers, so the only blue we’re feeling this Monday is the shades of endless possibility.

Alphonse was previously closed from May through to end of September as this was the time to rest the adjoining St Francois atoll flats from fishing. But with growing leisure tourism, Alphonse island now remains open for scuba diving and other marine safari adventures including deep sea and fly fishing. May to September are dryer months and while there may be more wind, days are less humid and skies are clearer.

St Francois remains closed from May to September, and Astove and Cosmoledo from late April to early November.

Zambia

WHAT WE LOVE: Having done safaris all over Africa our whole team agrees that Zambia is still one of the most sensational and authentic safari experiences. As the home of walking safaris this is one of the best places to get out of the vehicle and do a safari on foot. Hailed as Africa’s ‘diamond in the rough’ or even ‘the warm heart of Africa’, Zambia is a country blessed with awe-inspiring natural wonders, a huge variety of wildlife and an abundance of birdlife, huge water bodies (including 17 magnificent waterfalls) and great tracts of pristine bushveld. It has also been acknowledged as one of the safest countries in the world, whose inhabitants are known for being warm and welcoming. It is a landlocked country, sharing its borders with Tanzania and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the north, Angola to the east, Namibia and Zimbabwe to the south, and Mozambique and Malawi to the east. It even shares a 2km border with Botswana!

Chem Chem Lodge

With 20 000 hectares (55 000 acres) of untainted African bush, the Chem Chem - Burunge Wildlife Management Area (WMA) protects an invaluable migration corridor between the ancient landscape of Tarangire National Park and the tranquil waters of Lake Manyara National Park. It is the perfect place to connect with the rolling wilderness around you and to immerse yourself in an authentic Tanzanian wilderness experience. The concept of a Slow Safari was born at Chem Chem.  Key is the ethos of a safari as a tangible, sensual experience beyond the confines of a vehicle, where on foot guests can see, feel, touch and smell the African bush for themselves.

The eight beautifully stylish and secluded tented suites have been designed to reflect the ethos of the camp, evoking the spirit of vintage safari. With each tented suite situated at least 80 metres apart from each other, you are ensured total privacy each with a stunning lake view. A pool is hidden beneath the trees to cool off from the midday sun, and the Chem Chem Spa offers the ultimate in relaxation. 

Chem Chem Lodge is the ultimate setting from which to explore on foot, slow down and indulge in a sensual African safari.
