THE BEST OF THE BEST OF TRAVEL

Almost half a million readers submitted their favourites in Condé Nast Traveler's 2018 READERS' CHOICE AWARDS, the longest-running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry.

We are proud to list our members included in CNT's RCA 2018:

ANGAMA MARA, Mara Triangle, Kenya


#1 in the Top Resorts in Africa and #5 in The Best Resorts in the World. So well-deserved and well done to this fabulous team.

CNT comment — "gobsmacking, 180-views of the savanna, whether you're lying in bed or taking a shower."

CHINDENI, South Luangwa National Park, Zambia


#5 in the Top Resorts in Africa and #11 in The Best Resorts in the World, we are incredibly proud of The Bushcamp Company for this achievement, as well as for Mfuwe Lodge being voted #14 in the Top Resorts in Africa.

CNT comment — "Chindeni's strength is its simplicity. But for our buck, it's the views from the evening sundowners, taken on your terrace, overlooking the lagoon where herds of hippo wallow, that will stay with you long after you return home."

GIBB'S FARM, Karatu, Tanzania


Voted #6 in the Top Hotels in Africa, Gibb's Farm remains everyone's darling on the Tanzanian safari circuit. If you've visited, you'll know why.

CNT comment — "This farmhouse on the wooded slopes of the Ngorongoro Crater overflows with history and character."

GIRAFFE MANOR, Nairobi, Kenya


Voted #9 in the Top Hotels in Africa, a kiss from an endangered Rothschild's giraffe is probably on most people's bucket list. Our advice? Make it happen!

CNT comment — "No matter how many safaris you've been on, there is nothing quite as wonderful and unforgettable as having breakfast or tea with the giraffes here."

Botswana

WHAT WE LOVE: One of Africa's most iconic destinations, and considered one of the safest countries of Africa, Botswana is the perfect partner to our safari camps in Zambia and easily accessed into and out of Maun for brilliant combinations with Cape Town and the Winelands. The Okavango Delta is a highlight and we love the land- and water-based opportunities to discover nature and truly connect with our roots.

Wolwedans Private Camp & Boulders Safari Camp

The vast 220 000-hectare private NamibRand Nature Reserve, an International Dark Sky Reserve, offers 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 wild desolation beckons your soul. It is simply out of this world. Located only 60 kilometers from the coast, 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 which combine to create the most immersive journey through this desert wilderness - Wolwedans Private Camp and Boulders Safari Camp.
