JetSet owner Julia Douglas’s favorite way to experience Africa is to combine bush and beach. After several days spent on safari, the Kenya and Tanzania coast is calling.
Discover barefoot luxury at the North Island in the Seychelles. Eleven private guest villas have been crafted from local materials, fusing luxury and simplicity. Coming soon to the Seychelles is the posh Four Seasons Desroches. Located on the remote Mirante—a 35-minute flight from Mahé—explore nine miles of white beach. One of our favorites to add on to South Africa experience is Mozambique’s &Beyond Benguerra. Situated on the second largest island in the sunny Bazaruto Archipelago, the lodge is located on a protected marine conservation area, with dare-to-leave-me beaches and unspoiled coral reefs.
Visit Fregate Island—a stunning jewel of the Seychelles that’s home to 2,200 free-roaming Giant Aldabra tortoises, and is a Banyan Hill estate on a completely secluded peninsula.
Experienced trackers and guides suggest age 10 for bringing kids on safari, though they have—and will—take younger children. Considering vaccinations pre-trip, trans-Atlantic flight schedules, time spent sitting quietly in vehicles on game drives, and limited independent activity, 10 or older ensures the greatest outcome.
At Nairobi’s Giraffe Manor in Kenya, a 1930s building celebrates classic British colonial décor, yet kiddos will most appreciate the herd of friendly resident Rothschild giraffes which often poke their heads into the restaurant in search of treats—an ideal “warm-up” to game drives. Lewa House offers beautifully designed “huts.” Three are original thatched roofs, while an additional four new structures emulate the originals and are fully sustainable. All meals are served family style with fellow guests. We loved this family-operated property.
A rare offering while on safari, a horseback ride in Kenya’s Lewa Wildlife Conservancy may reveal the elusive black rhino.
