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."

São Tomé and Príncipe

Príncipe is an adventure. A tiny island topped by a canopy of green broken by spires of primordial rock, join us to discover this magnificent lost world, offering fantastic beaches, jungle exploration, snorkelling, fishing and birdwatching.

As the smaller, northern major island of the country of São Tomé and Príncipe lying off the west coast of Africa in the Gulf of Guinea, Príncipe has an area of 136 square kilometres (53 sq mi) and a population of approximately 7,000. The island is a heavily eroded volcano speculated to be over three million years old. Here you will discover a place that time forgot and where you feel you have stepped off the edge of the world. It is distinctively West African with a very strong Portuguese influence and this gives it a rhythm of its own which sets it apart from any experiences in East and Southern African.

Legendary Serengeti Camp

Explore a rich landscape of inky blue skies, burnt orange sunsets and the soft neutrals of the African savannah. Within the largest of Tanzania’s national parks is a promise of luxury with premier accommodations and superb service that are Legendary Serengeti Camps

Legendary Serengeti Camps have two identical mobile camps, each with 8 en-suite tents and a family tent (2 en-suite rooms and a shared lounge). Each of the camps is pitched as a split camp whereby one side of the camp will have 6 tents and the other side 2 tents and the family tent. Each half of the camp faces in a different direction and is fully contained with its own lounge and dining facility, using natural habitat to ensure maximum privacy and each camp. The smaller side with 2 tents and the family tent has the option to become a ‘Private Camp’. Every booking is allocated a private safari vehicle for game drives and seated at separate dining tables for mealtimes.

The mobile camps are closed from 1 April until 15 May and 16 to 30 November. These are the planned dates for camp mobilisation and are subject to change. The camp follows the migratory route of the wildebeest. Should the herds move earlier or later than expected, the camps may be mobilised accordingly. Please enquire with specific dates to check the expected location of the camp.

CAMP 1: (SOUTH) moves between the southern migration, Maswa, to the northern migration, Lamai.  Access: South - Mwiba/Makao Airstrips | North - Lamai Airstrip

CAMP 2: (WEST) moves between the western corridor, Nyasirori, to the northern migration, Wogakuria.  Access: West - Kirawira Airstrip | North - Kogatende Airstrip
