Opulence. Our new gay South Africa tour is shamelessly extravagant. To grasp the level of luxury you can expect, here’s a primer on the haute hotels featured. They’ll make you feel like you – own – everything!
Experience 5-star service at Victoria Falls
The height of our first hotel’s standards may only be dwarfed by Victoria Falls itself. No request is too big, no standard is too large and no expectation will be unmet.
After a day exploring the falls, kickback by the hotel pool overlooking the African savannah. Take dinner by candlelight on the hotel terrace. And when dusk settles over the savannah, head to the lounge for a nightcap.
Finally, gay travellers will be drooling over the interior design. Neutral tones pop next to smart elemental touches inspired by both the surrounds and a by-gone era of colonial wealth.
Indulge in this luxurious safari lodge
For the second leg of our journey we’ll be touching down in Sabi Sands Game Reserve in South Africa. It’s here we’ll do the majority of our game drives, checking the Big 5 off our list and photographing Africa’s flora and fauna.
With splendid panoramic views, Inyati Luxury Lodge is the perfect place for peace and relaxation while watching animals meander past. Each private suite is elegantly styled, spacious and cooled by ceiling fans. Not to mention, all the rooms open directly onto the savanna, submerging you in your African surrounds.
Unwind in Cape Town’s best boutique hotel
To cap off this sumptuous South Africa sojourn, unpack your bags at Cape Town’s best boutique hotel, MannaBay. It is a three-time World Travel Awards Nominee in the category ‘South Africa’s Leading Boutique Hotel’.
LGBT jet setters have continuously fallen in love with it’s dazzling interior design. Each room is unique and inspired by everything from Persian princes to orchids and even flamingos. Expect your stay to be highly curated, styled for the gods and bedazzled beyond belief. Oh yeah, and the views of Table Mountain and the harbour aren’t half bad either ?.
