Our top places to visit in Africa this year

 
There’s plenty to look forward to in 2022; the world is at your fingertips once more and we can’t wait to show you what you’ve been missing. Whilst many of our beloved wild places have been in hibernation, there’s been exciting things happening under the surface.

Innovative new properties have been built, conservation projects have seen success and Africa’s vast and crowd-free wilderness has more appeal than ever.

Escape the crowds in Botswana

If you’re in search of seclusion and uninterrupted wilderness then Botswana is the place for you. Being in an utterly wild place surrounded by exceptional game viewing doesn’t mean scrimping on comfort; Botswana has long been famed for its exclusive safari experience. The most recent addition is Little DumaTau, located in the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve offering sumptuous tented suites with spacious private decks and plunge pools.

Imagine soaring, eagle-eyed, over the expansive oasis of the Okavango Delta by helicopter, spotting leaping herds of antelope and zebra, sleepy pods of hippo and roaming elephant. Then, discover this maze of fleeting and permanent waterways by foot, boat and 4x4 vehicle.

Help protect wildlife in Kenya

Once a working cattle ranch in colonial Kenya, the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, in Laikipia, is a true conservation success. This is the only place in the world to see the northern white rhino; the last two remaining are fiercely protected within the conservancy.

The 90,000-acre wildlife sanctuary runs a number of conservation programmes. Join the rangers of the Ol Pejeta Ecological Monitoring Department and help to protect lions from poachers. Or, go behind the scenes of the Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary; and learn how they provide lifelong refuge to orphaned and abused chimpanzees from West and Central Africa.

Game viewing within the conservancy is incredibly diverse. You can ride alongside black rhino on horseback or head out by jeep and encounter elephant, lion, leopard, cheetah and much more.

Venture out under the cover of darkness on a night game drive to see nocturnal species spring to life, or trace the path of the Ewaso Nyiro River in search of hippo and crocodile.

New for 2022

Opening in summer 2022, boutique style meets the open plains of the Ol Pejeta Conservancy at Sanctuary Tambarare. There are just 10 luxurious guest tents nestled amongst fever trees with private verandas overlooking the plains; an idyllic base from which to recharge after the thrill of a day on safari.

Discover a hidden gem in South Africa

Nambiti Private Game Reserve is easy to reach from Durban and Johannesburg, yet being relatively undiscovered, you’re in for a real game viewing treat. Yes, you’ll be able to see the Big Five in this vast wilderness, but the lesser-seen species such as pangolin and aardvark are equally thrilling to encounter.

New for 2022

The Homestead takes you deep into the wilds of the game reserve. Hike through untamed landscapes, camp overnight in the mountains, get involved with their conservation programmes and much more.

The camp combines sustainability and luxury with ease. Twelve unique suites sit effortlessly within the surrounding landscape. In the main area, the infinity pool is the perfect place to relax after a day in the wild or unwind with a cool drink on the viewing platform overlooking the camp’s waterhole.

This extraordinary homestead is due to open early this year.

Get back to nature in Tanzania

A trip to Tanzania is guaranteed to take your breath away, whether you’re a first timer or a seasoned safari-goer. It’s filled with scenic wonders and spectacular wildlife; from the elephant filled forests of Tarangire to the iconic Ngorongoro Crater and the undulating yellow grasses of the Serengeti.

New for 2022

Grumeti Serengeti River Lodge has benefited from its prime riverside location since the 1990’s; guests sit comfortably in camp watching hippo and crocodiles along the riverbank.

Sadly, in 2020 the Grumeti River burst its banks and flooded the camp. &Beyond have turned this into an opportunity to completely renovate, taking inspiration from the incredible wilderness that surrounds it.

Set to reopen in June 2022, the camp is a true celebration of nature’s design and brings understated luxury into the wilderness, while focusing on generating renewable energy - of which 80% of the camp will run on.

Have the wilds of Africa to yourself as you head out in search of large lion prides, clans of hyena, black and white colobus monkeys and big herds of resident plains game. Time it right and catch a glimpse of the great migration as two million wildebeest and zebra journey from the southern Serengeti up into the Masai Mara.

Hit the beach in land-locked Malawi

Known as the ‘warm heart of Africa’, Malawi has long been recognised as having the friendliest people in the world. Combine this with the unexpected beauty and diversity of its landscape and it’s easy to see why Malawi has graced Lonely Planet’s ‘best places to visit in 2022’.

Although land-locked, Lake Malawi is so vast you can easily fit the country of Wales within its circumference. Staying at Kaya Mawa Lodge, you could be forgiven for thinking you are beach-side as crystal clear waters lap the shoreline. Fresh water diving and an abundance of watersports are available - the perfect way to recharge after a Big 5 safari in Liwonde National Park, located at the southern tip of the lake.

Encounter Rhino in Rwanda

You’re likely to know of Rwanda’s incredible gorilla trekking experience in the lush Parc National des Volcans, but did you know that last year, Rwanda was the final destination of the largest single translocation of white rhino?

Relocated from Phinda in South Africa the rhino now reside in Akagera National Park. This wildlife sanctuary is one of Africa’s hidden gems; a perfect place to reconnect with nature on quiet game drives, sunset cruises and camping under the stars.With the introduction of rhino, you can encounter the big five among rolling hills, acacia groves, swamps and lakes of the park.

Head for primates and pristine beaches after the thrill of a safari. Begin at Sabinyo Silverback Lodge, a stunning, well-run base from which to track primates; here a trek into the lush rainforest is rewarded with a close encounter with the endangered mountain gorilla.

The peace and serenity of Lake Kivu Serena Hotel is just a two-hour journey from the gorillas. Here you can unwind on a lounger overlooking the beautiful Lake Kivu, visit the local hot springs or take to the lake by boat.
