01. WILD ABOUT WILDLIFE @ DUBA EXPEDITION CAMP,


NORTHERN BOTSWANA Experience barefoot luxury at its best on a wooded island in the heart of the Okavango Delta. Stay in one of only six expedition-style tents inside a 31 161ha private concession that’s the site of many famous wildlife documentaries by National Geographic filmmakers Dereck and Beverly Joubert. Expect stunning sights of elephant, kudu, warthogs, bat-eared foxes, crocodiles and hippo. If you’re lucky, you could even see a leopard on one of the night drives. The large herds of buffalo and red lechwes are the dishes du jour for the lions of Duba, which hunt almost exclusively during daylight hours. The camp’s connected to the area by an elaborate set of bridges which you can explore on a guided game walk with a licensed, armed guide. GOOD TO KNOW: The camp’s partnership with the representative body for five villages in the Okavango panhandle ensures these communities receive tangible and substantial benefits from using their ancestral land for wildlife conservation.

to do than in this hot new Indian Ocean spot just off the coast of Tanzania. Especially in your private cabana just steps from the beach, among a gently sloping landscape of sand, palm trees and timber walkways. Relax in the village resort that boasts 60 individual cabanas and five larger villas, together with restaurants, bars, yoga, meditation spaces and massage cabanas. Because of the limited infrastructure on the island and its need for self-sufficiency, the off-the-grid resort has been carefully designed to respond to Zanzibar’s culture, climate and geography. The cabanas make use of shade and sea breezes to help create a natural ventilation system within the hotel interiors. And when you’re tired of the beach (as


if!), retreat to the private garden to recharge your batteries. GOOD TO KNOW: Zuri Zanzibar has a spice garden where indigenous and rare, fragrant spices are grown and used in the resort’s restaurants. Also look out for its exclusive range of cosmetics created using these spices. CONTACT: www.zurizanzibar.com
