A mobile dhow safari in the Quirimbas Archipelago is a romantic getaway that does what it says on the tin: it well and truly gets you away.
Having recently designed an itinerary for a London based financial firm’s work trip to Southern Africa, it suddenly occurred to me that perhaps we don’t do enough by way of persuading businesses of the benefits of budgeting for the extraordinary.
I am a firm believer in the extraordinary rewards that going on safari with one’s family brings. Some of you may remember receiving a circular going into some detail as to why. If not, then I know that many of you will have already read what we have to say regarding the hands-on life lessons travel to wild Africa offers children.
If you are after high octane wildlife experiences, then Namibia is probably not going to be top of your list. However, if you’re looking to spend time in stunning landscapes either so different as to seem extra-terrestrial, or so extreme that they demand a whole new way of looking, then pack your bags! It is a very, very beautiful country – like no other I've visited.
I am not a fan of luxury for luxury’s sake. Luxury, by definition, is excessive. Promoting luxury over and above the idea of sustainable tourism is, in my opinion, extremely short sighted. It suggests a thinking that is all about the now, with no thought as to the impact such thinking has on the future.
