    Pocket Guide: Africa and Indian Ocean

    The landscapes of Africa enthral in their diversity. There are tropical rain forests, timeless sand dunes, sprawling savannahs and jagged mountains that back green-tinged highlands. Amongst all this it can seem that Noah's Ark may have dropped its entire payload here: elephants, hippos, lions, gorillas, giraffes, crocodiles, dolphins and whales all call African land or water home. The sheer variety that an African safari can encompass is bewildering. Underpinning all this is the culture and history of Africa: the innumerable tribes, the ancient civilizations of Egypt, the contemporary cool of cities such as Cape Town and the sheer, beguiling thrill of a Moroccan souq or a bazaar in Zanzibar. Africa is many things indeed, but all of them offer a sense of adventure. Have an adventure of your own with a Hotel in Africa.

    Countries in Africa

    South Africa – From the cosmopolitan charms of Cape Town to the tribal areas of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa covers a lot of ground. The desert at Kalahari invites exploration whilst nothing could be more pleasurable than losing yourself in the blooming wildflowers of Namakwa. Kruger National Park is stuffed with safari opportunities and hikers will love the achingly beautiful Drakensberg range. Experience the excitement that only safari can give you with a hotel in South Africa.

    Egypt - The mighty Nile gave birth to one of the world’s first great civilizations, and you can still see its remains in the pyramids at Giza, the tombs and palaces of Luxor and the monumental architecture that dots the course of its progress through Egypt. Take a cruise on the Nile, enjoy the sights from a hot air balloon, hop on a camel or ride a donkey. There are many ways to see the sights but all are close at hand with a hotel in Egypt - and will leave you slightly breathless!

    Morocco – Take a trek in the heights of the Atlas mountains, try and stay on a camel through the sand dunes, enjoy the romantic views of the rugged coastline from the crumbling ramparts of Essaouira or party hard in Casablanca: Morocco is a place to both find and lose yourself. Nowhere is this truer than in the winding alleys of the ancient souqs or the vibrant bustle of Marrakech’s central square. A mystical break in Morocco is all yours with a hotel in this amazing part of the world.

    Tanzania – Going on wildlife safaris, discovering dazzling beaches, exploring romantic ruins and the standing in awe of the majesty of Mount Kilimanjaro are all adventures that await you here. Along the way you’ll meet the red-cloaked Maasai warriors, nomadic Barabaig and the Makonde wood carvers among many other Tanzanian tribes.

    Things to See from a Hotel in South Africa

    The ancient monuments of Egypt are a truly spectacular sight but Africa holds many more in store for you. Herds of elephants plodding across savannahs, lions lying languorously at watering holes and the rare Rothschild giraffe whose tongue extends a massive 20 inches – a feat that is very hard to lick! There are the stunning beaches of Zanzibar, the sweeping sand dunes of Morocco, the sheer scale of Mount Kilimanjaro and many other places of natural beauty to take in.

    Things to Do in Africa

    Thrill seekers need not pack any shots of adrenaline: there will be plenty of that available. Skydive over the scenery surrounding Cape Town, ascend Mount Kilimanjaro, surf the waves at Durban, surf the the Indian Ocean, cage dive with white water sharks, take a hot air balloon over the Nile Valley or sandboard the dunes in Morocco. Cultural tours can take you to Bedouin tents or to meet the Zulu tribes and, wherever you travel the melting pot of Indian, Arabic and African cultures has resulted in some delectable dishes to savour. What are you waiting for: tuck in!

    "Good 4 Star Hotel"
    Overall management and staff training is lacking to make this a five star hotel. Shame because it's a beautiful resort. There are a lot of really nice managers wandering around but there is no consistency of service from one day to the next. They really want to look after you but don't quite know how. Good for a 4 star hotel but not quite 5 star eg. Restaurant and lobby bar staff don't look around to see if you need something or to promptly clear away dishes.; Not charged service fee for room service first couple of days and then suddenly told £12 service fee now introduced as new policy when nothing written in the guide! Shoes left in tray for complimentary polishing but never polished during the week we were there. Good breakfast buffet, dinner buffet starters and dessert excellent however unimpressive main courses usually dry or overcooked. Excellent massage at Spa with Arveen who really knows how to cure you. I was there practically every day. Nice cocktails at the bar.

    "A memory to cherish"
    I booked this hotel for my mum and I as a special treat for our first few days in South Africa. It was everything that we could have wished for - luxurious accommodation, well located, superb service, great food, beautiful pool and of course the view! The beds were the most comfortable that we've ever slept in, it felt like you were floating on them - we never woke once in the night which is unusual. By the time we checked out we felt that we had had an experience that we would never forget.

    "Great hotel with splendid location."
    This is a very fine older hotel with abundant amenities, an unbeatable location, and a very pleasant, patient, and helpful staff. The style here is comfortable and dignified without being overly dressy or stuffy. And all of this at a very attractive price. For me, it was an excellent choice. I would heartily recommend it.
