The true Zest of Zanzibar

This ancient spice route island now holds a much more fragrant appeal to travellers with its exceptional accommodation for sun seekers. We take a look at the Zanzibar Collection. Getting to Zanzibar had been fraught. Precision Air, our airline, had failed at every turn – we’d seen more precision in a game of ‘Pin the tail on the donkey’.

Pack your trunk for Nellie!

’The Nellie’ as it’s known by many of the locals, sits like a wedding cake in the heart of Cape Town’s historic and cultural centre; near the trendy areas of Kloof and Long Streets, nestling at the foot of Table Mountain. The Mount Nelson experience starts at their entrance, through the Prince of Wales gates and continues to the hotel where you’ll be greeted with a sea of pink walls and welcoming staff. Once you settle into the...
