Accommodation in Africa
Glorious South Africa is a fantastic destination to explore the mesmerising natural wonders and fascinating cultural attractions. Start your exploration in Johannesburg and stay near Newtown or the cultural precinct known as the Market Theatre area to take advantage of the city's thriving nightlife. Alternatively, Melville is close to the great restaurants on 7th Street. There are comfortable mid-range stays extending into Rosebank and Parktown. Among the top luxury hotels in Johannesburg are the Hyatt Regency, where you can embrace complete indulgence at the Zulu-inspired Phumula Spa and the Hilton Sandton, which doubles as a business and entertainment venue.
When holidaying in Cape Town, it's worth reserving a room at the stylish Hollow on the Square, which is located just moments from retail paradise at Green Market Square, St Georges Mall and the Flower Market. Otherwise, the Hilton provides the perfect base for inner city sight seeing. The Cape Peninsula offers a better chance to enjoy Cape Town's natural grandeur or to get active with swimming, paragliding and coastal hiking opportunities.
Kenya's capital, Nairobi is an important financial hub of African economics and as such, there are many lavishly-appointed international hotels in the city. The Villa Rosa Kempinski and the InterContinental Nairobi are comfortable accommodation options. To head into the national parks such as the Masai Mara, Sambaru and Amboseli, most safari accommodation features stylish colonial-era architecture, sweeping savannah views and the mandatory swimming pool, which is a welcome relief from the African heat.
Business travellers visiting Port Louis will enjoy the 5-star experience at the Labourdonnais Waterfront Hotel, adjacent to the financial district, while the Le Suffren Hotel & Marina has a selection of 4-star rooms and suites perfect for both business or leisure. Alternatively, the Mon Choix bed and breakfast ecolodge adds personal touch to the Mauritius accommodation scene. On the mid-west coast, the majority of comfortable hotels are found in Flic-en-Flac, such as the Hilton Mauritius Resort & Spa and the Sofitel Mauritius L'Imperial Resort & Spa – both offering decadent spa treatments and terrific fine dining options.
