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’. Shambolic check-in, numerous unannounced hours of delays, offloaded in Dar es Salaam, routed...

The Kanha collection

Three distinctively unique lodges that we recommend as real gems in the Indian jungles of Kanha. If you’re travelling to Kanha National Park in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh – the so called ‘Tiger State’ – there are numerous choices of jungle lodge that almost litter the roadside near both Kisli and Mukki entrance gates. In our opinion Kisli gate has now become overcrowded with both lodges and people queuing in...
