The Truth About Authentic African Luxury Experience

by | Feb 13, 2019 | Luxury Camping | 0 comments

You’ve dreamed of traveling to Africa on a luxury vacation, to see scenic views that can be seen in no other continent. From the hot desert and breeze-blown grasslands all the way to small villages where the natives honor their culture without outside influence from western principles.

In Africa, luxury takes on a new meaning, as we redefine what luxury is all about.

One way to see Africa is to book a comfortable vacation in accommodation with your king-sized bed in an air-conditioned room…with the view off your balcony over the swimming pool. You can travel to Africa and stay in high-end luxury hotels in the city, taking day trips in an air-conditioned bus to locations that can never give you a true feeling of what this amazing country is really like.
Africa is meant to be explored, to be embraced as an adventure. And the best way to do this is by booking your accommodation with camps and lodges that can provide you with a Luxury stay.

Luxurious Front Row Seats to the Wilderness

A real African adventure lets you experience the wilderness of this amazing country close up and personal, instead of taking in the views through National Geographic. Watch the sunrise over the savannah, slowly waking the wildlife to another beautiful African day.

Camps and lodges throughout Tanzania and other countries will agree that in order to see the real Africa, you need to stop being a spectator and instead become part of Africa you see around you. A true luxury stay is about interacting with the world around you – watching, listening, and then experiencing Africa off the beaten path. If you stay on that tourist path, you’ll never get a true glimpse of Africa.

The Luxury of Being Immersed in African Culture

When you embark on a real African luxury vacation you have the opportunity to learn about different cultures that have thrived for years. As you learn about other cultures, you learn more about yourself and your connection to the world around you. This unique experience is different from tours in other countries, where an indoor museum tour shows you the history and culture of the country.

A true African vacation is all about an authentic cultural experience. You want to be exposed to different customs and cultures, unique traditions and dress, languages and dances that you won’t encounter when you stay in top end hotels. Unless you go off the beaten path, you won’t be able to witness the true side of Africa. You’ll only be shown the Africa these hotels and tours think you should see. Many of these hotels will show you Africa as an entertainment rather than as an education that you need to jump into the midst of.

African Hospitality at its Best

African hospitality is unlike anything you’ve experienced before. On your luxury safari vacation, rather than employees at standard hotels, you’ll meet and mingle with the African people as they welcome you into their homes.

When you stay in camps and lodges, you’ll get to know your hosts and guides. You’ll be able to ask questions and know the answers are based on experience and a desire to show you their beautiful country. Your host and guide will make sure you have a luxury stay that’s true to what Africa is all about.

Luxury Accommodation in the Wilderness

Luxury accommodation on your African safari is all about staying right in the heart of the wilderness. Rather than staying in a penthouse with air conditioning and views through a glass window, you’ll be sleeping in the comfort of a tented camp with plush bedding, and a hot shower right outside. You’ll be able to experience the wilderness in ways you’ve only dreamed of.

If you want to learn about African cultures, you’ll need to stay in remote locations, where villages are rich in culture, sharing their tribal dance with visitors. You’ll need to stay in camps right on the edge of the savannah, tucked up against the wilderness where you’ll be able to see wild animals roaming free.

Savannah Fine Dining

Dining in the savannah is another African experience you don’t want to miss. Instead of eating in a restaurant under artificial lights and listening to recorded music, you’ll be dining under starlit skies to the sound of crickets serenading you. With the open landscape around you, luxury dining is all about listening to the birds calling from the Africa bush and looking at the spacious views all around you.

Luxury of Savoring African Cuisine

One of the enjoyable things about travel to other countries is being able to taste foods from different cultures. When you travel to Africa and head off on a luxury safari, you’ll be able to savor authentic African dishes rather than the usual international fare that awaits you in hotels. Be prepared for new aromas and tastes in the delicious cultural foods of Africa.

Luxury African Vacation
