Always look for hidden gems!

Written by 

You know our type of place : owner run, fabulous accommodation, great guiding, terrific activities...and no silly price tag.

You, and other top operators, are increasingly using our partners - and finding them every bit as good as we said. 

So here are a few you should not miss...

ENTIM MARA CAMP, MARA GR, KENYA
Located right at the heart of the Mara  - on a curve of the Mara River. With two magnificent crossing points visible, guests often don’t even leave the (very comfortable) camp to view the area's stunning wildlife. It's also truly eco-friendly and merges naturally into its environment. www.entim-mara.com

HATARI LODGE, ARUSHA NP, TANZANIA
Too often seen as just a stop-over for northern circuit safaris, Arusha NP has much more to offer especially at Hatari Lodge with crater lakes, great game-viewing, close up views of Mount Meru and Hatari’s outstanding community work with the Momella Foundation. Hatari is unique, boutique, safari chic.  www.hatarilodge.com

WILDWATERS LODGE, RIVER NILE, UGANDA

Nestled in luxuriant rainforest on its own private island, Wildwaters Lodge is just breathtaking. Just ten rooms nestle amidst the forest with private views over the River Nile and its grade-5 rapids. This is the perfect location to unwind after a Uganda tour or as a base for waterbound activities. www.wildwaterslodge.com

TONGOLE WILDERNESS LODGE, MALAWI
Tongole is reason enough to visit Malawi all by itself! It’s a  5-star property, hidden away in Nkhotakota WR in Malawi. This park is recovering fast and with their arrival, the local community and wildlife is really prospering. The lodge itself is simply stunning and has already been described as “amongst the 5 most beautiful lodges in Africa”. www.tongole.com

NXAMASERI LODGE, OKAVANGO CLEARWATERS, BOTSWANA
Nxamaseri  is in the clearwaters of the panhandle. Newly refurbished and re-styled it has just 8 open fronted and spacious rooms. They offer outstanding birding (inc Pel's Fishing Owl), delightful boat cruising, cultural insights into the local community and fabulous day trips to the mystic Tsodilo Hills. www.nxamaseri.com
