WHAT’S NEW

Every Wednesday, What’s New on the travel scene, in Africa, for you.

Wednesday, 26 July 2017

Entamanu Ngorongoro is on the Condé Nast Traveller Hot List 2017, released in the special double issue for July/August 2017.  This holy grail of top-notch spots of where travellers like to stay, and the reason for doing so, marks an achievement well deserved.

One of Nomad Tanzania’s specialist safari camps, Entamanu Ngorongoro is perched on the edge of the Ngorongoro Crater, surrounded by endless views that touch the sky in the distant horizon. The camp is off the beaten track, wildly remote and warmly hosted.

Accommodation is provided in canvas rooms that sit on raised platforms, with interiors made of sustainable wood and locally sourced fixtures and fittings, all made by talented Tanzanian crafts people.  Minimal environment impact is the mantra here.  No bush or tree has been removed to make space for the camp. The structure can be dismantled and removed without a trace.

This is an experience voted by those in the know.

Silence is Golden.

In our world of consumerism and noise, where everyone has a smartphone, isolation has become the ‘the next big thing’ in luxury travel. This is according to the latest research conducted by Skift.

Luxury travellers want to be as far away as possible from the madding crowd and the pressures of everyday life. “Silence is golden and isolation comes at a premium for luxury travellers who really, really want to get away,” travel journalist Laura Powell told Skift.

Miles from anywhere, Africa has it all. Space, silence, and a pace that allows you to unwind and take things slowly, in your own time. All you can hear, is silence
