Our Wish List recommendations for July include a honeymoon safari in South Africa providing all creature comforts: a safari Land Rover with guide and tracker, rather a lot of champagne, luxury game lodges, an outdoor bath with rivers to a river (big enough for two), and of course, looking at a lot of wildlife. Londolozi is one of the original pioneering private game reserves of the ecotourism industry in South Africa and an unashamedly family run, stand alone operation. The root of the word Londolozi is the Zulu word for protect and means protector of all living things – an ambitious conservation ethic that Londolozi embraces in its sensitivity to the natural world.
The reserve is internationally recognised for its far-sighted and progressive management of land and wildlife rehabilitation as well as productive community involvement. World renowned as one of Africa’s finest game lodges, Londolozi was the first game reserve in the world to be accorded Relais & Chateaux status, reinforcing its commitment to luxurious accommodation, fine cuisine and exceptional service. www.londolozi.com/en/contact/
Here’s a tongue-twister: Le Taha’a Resort & Spa is located on the dazzling turquoise lagoon of Taha’a in Tahiti. Just 10 minutes away from Bora Bora by helicopter, this beach resort is designed in Polynesian style.
Located on an offshore islet filled with vanilla plantations, guests stay in overwater bungalows or beach villas built with local bamboo; the former have wraparound decks, so guests can kayak to and from their rooms, while the villas have plunge pools and hammocks under the coconut trees. Tahiti and her islands, comprises 118 islands divided in five archipelagoes: the Society Islands, the Marquesas, the Tuamotu, the Australs and the Gambier. The resort has a 50 per cent discount for a minimum stay of seven nights, up to December 15, 2012. email@example.com
