By complete coincidence, as I walked the streets of Manaus' historical district, in the northern Brazilian state of Amazonas, my eye caught a beautiful yellow 19th-century building this past February.

I asked a friendly attendant at the front gate if it was possible to go in for a coffee.Write comment (1 Comment)
The Houghton Hotel is Johannesburg's newest 5-star property. It's so new that I wasn't even listed on the Uber app. I instead had to add the adjacent Houghton Golf Club's address as a substitute. It's located a bit out of the way and a perfect option if you're looking to stay in a quiet area, away from the hustle and bustle of central Johannesburg.Write comment (0 Comments)
Are you looking to experience the ultimate wilderness experience in Namibia's Etosha National Park in style and luxury? Emanya@Etosha Game Lodge is a perfect option. This 5-star safari lodge is conveniently located just a 20-minute drive from Etosha National Park's eastern von Lindequist gate.
Arriving at Etosha Lodge after a long 6-hour drive from Windhoek, undertaken shortly after landing at Hosea Kutako International Airport on a flight from Johannesburg, this was a welcome sumptuous abode.Write comment (0 Comments)
The Strand Hotel Swakopmund is one of those underrated 4-star properties which should definitely be considered a 5-star. Located directly along the idyllic Swakopmund Mole (promenade), it boasts direct access to the town's main beach.Write comment (0 Comments)
