The Serengeti provides the stage for Tanzania’s famous Great Wildebeest Migration but this is also a country of big cats, massive elephant herds, and thriving chimpanzee-filled rainforests. 

And with Zanzibar and its getaway Indian Ocean islands like Pemba and Mnemba within easy reach, it’s the perfect ‘bush-and-beach’ destination. 


Game viewing is generally excellent during the June to October dry season but you’ll need to travel to the Serengeti between November and August to see the Migration. Zanzibar and its nearby islands get their best weather between August and October.

Seychelles Beach Holiday Experience

A scattering of islands in the Indian Ocean – some large, some not much bigger than a city block – Seychelles has a well-deserved reputation for romance and enjoys equatorial weather: warm and sunny year-round with a chance of rain at any time.

The hottest months are December to April while the wettest are January and February; if you plan to scuba dive then April/May and October/November have the best underwater visibility.

Activities to look forward to include just about every water sport you can think of but there are hiking and mountain biking too

Dramatic mountains frame the fertile valleys of the Cape Winelands. Undulating landscapes and a perfect climate lie behind the area’s long history of world-class winemaking, and today you can enjoy mouthwatering cuisine washed down with some of the finest wines you will ever taste. 

And if you are still torn between, say, Napa or South Africa, remember which Winelands have Cape Town on their doorstep!

Marrakech, Morroco

Marrakech is a delight for all the senses, and one of the most fascinating places on earth to lose yourself in the moment. Each day promises delight, discovery, and intrigue, from the dawn call to prayer to a rooftop sunset cocktail.

Explore the Djemaa el-Fna open-air market and the Dyers’ Souk, then take time out in the green cacti garden of the Jardin Majorelle. Marrakech will linger long in your memories.

Chem Chem Lodge, Tanzania

Chem Chem Lodge has one of the loveliest settings of any lodge anywhere. 


That’s quite a claim, but it’s one that’s fully justified the moment you see its location on the eastern shores of Tanzania’s Lake Manyara. The 5-star lodge is set within luscious palm-island and consists of an opulent main house and eight secluded tent-style suites. 

Each suite is designed to evoke the spirit, luxury, and intimacy of an authentic vintage safari experience. Chem Chem is a place where time can standstill, and you can appreciate each moment at your own pace – unless of course, you accept the challenge of a run across the plains in the company of a Maasai warrior to jog your ancestral memories of being an African hunter.
