Game drives, bush walks, tracking, paddling in the pool and the general dawn-to-dusk nature of safari can sometimes leave you a bit winded. That’s why for those who enjoy some indulgence while on holiday, we recommend a stay at a property with a spa. Not all spas are created equally, and while we think a massage on the banks of the Zambezi is every bit as amazing as one in a plush environment, to narrow down the best we’re concentrating on full-service spas that are renowned for their facilities, services and experiences. Read on to find out which of Africa’s amazing spas made our exclusive list.
The awards for our top city spas go to South African properties – the Cape Grace in Cape Town and the Saxon in Johannesburg.
These spas aren’t out in the bush, but they’re not in the heart of a city, either. These are places to unwind a bit further in an already restful environment.
These are extraordinary facilities found in wilderness environments. Little oases in areas that are already an escape from the world.
Our passion for Africa began with a dream of living on the continent – a dream realized. We explored parks, rivers, mountains and villages, learned about the flora and fauna, fell in love with everything, and came away wanting to share our passion for a remarkable continent. Africa Adventure Consultants was born of the desire to give more people the chance to experience Africa’s wonders. Let us guide you into the wilderness.
Africa is enormous. There are endless things to see and do, and it can’t all be done in one trip. That said, we realize that many people believe that a trip to Africa is ‘once in a lifetime’ (though many more end up realizing once is not enough!). What do you most want to see? What experiences have you been dreaming of? Visit our destination pages to narrow your choices down, browse our safari types to get a sense of the activities and styles available, or talk with a Journey Specialist to hone in on the areas that will deliver the journey of your imagination.
We know it can be hard to narrow down what to do on vacation, especially with the wealth of choices that are available on the African continent. That’s why we have created an array of sample itineraries to inspire your travel. Browse through them – you’ll find everything from family safaris to honeymoons to Kilimanjaro climbs – and find the places and activities that excite you. From there, you can contact a Journey Specialist to start the process of crafting a customized safari just for you!
