Visit the Best Boutique Places to Stay in Africa

We understand how difficult it is to make a decision about which hotel or lodge to visit during your bucket-list trip to Africa – there are so many to choose from!

While the definition of “Luxury” is different for each person, we believe that luxury involves responsibly exploring unique locations, enjoying fabulous food, appreciating authentic, immersive, sustainable experiences while enjoying personal and passionate service.  The venues we prefer to work with offer a combination of these ideals.

Over the years we have worked with a wide variety of establishments, and are delighted to personally recommend the hotels and lodges listed below. This list is constantly evolving and growing as we discover new and exciting venues.
