Some of the fascinating things to do in exotic Stone Town, Zanzibar? Weep at a haunting old slave market. Learn about sultans at the Palace Museum. And go on a sunset dhow cruise.
There’s nothing like an African river cruise on the “Zambezi Queen”! Wake up to grunting hippos and watch elephants at dusk while sipping champagne.
Several hiking trails scale Table Mountain in Cape Town. The shortest is Platteklip Gorge. Skeleton Gorge and 12 Apostles are more scenic routes, but longer. Here’s our hiking guide!
You don’t really want to see lions on walking safaris. It’s thrilling enough being unprotected in the bush on a walking trip in Zambia’s unmatched South Luangwa!
The lions are bullet-fast hunting the impala. On our amazing Big 5 safari in Sabi Sands, we see animals galore. But other places in Africa are famous for spotting the Big 5 too.
Casablanca or Marrakesh? We chose the Marrakesh shore excursion on our Morocco cruise, which also visited Tangier. Right choice! A magical day…
One of the best 5-star hotels in Cape Town, the 12 Apostles Hotel & Spa wowed us with killer sea views, elegantly decorated rooms, bubbly at check-in, mountain walking trails and its superb Leopard Bar.
