Africa’s Luxury Safari Camps on the 2015 Hot List

Three incredible hotels in Africa have made it into the top 7 of the Condé Nast Traveller’s Hot List 2015. That’s right – in the top 7 of the 53 best hotels in the world for 2015! Think ultimate luxury with a unique experiential twist that can form part of a luxury tailor-made itinerary through Southern or Eastern Africa or as a stand-alone holiday or honeymoon destination to add that extra splash of exclusivity to your African holiday of a lifetime.

At number 4: Asilia Namiri Plains Camp, Tanzania

“Where the big cats roam”, Namiri Plains is located in a part of the Serengeti that was made a protected area for cheetah research and has only recently been opened to guests and, as a result, it is totally secluded and one of the best cheetah viewing locations in the world. Due to the lack of human activity a pride of lions has made the water hole near the camp it’s home which guests have the delight of viewing from camp with not a single other game vehicle in sight.
