Boutique safari specialist, Sanctuary Retreats, is delighted to announce that the readers of luxe international travel magazine, Condé Nast Traveler, have voted three of its properties in the top 10 of the ‘Top 30 Resorts in Africa’.http://join.travelmanagers.com.au/

Ranked at #7, Sanctuary Chief’s Camp is renowned for its exceptional service. This exclusive camp is consistently rated as one of the top safari camps in Botswana and sees clients returning again and again. Located on Chief’s Island in the Mombo Concession of the famous Moremi Game Reserve, Sanctuary Chief’s Camp lies in the heart of Africa’s predator capital. Early 2016 will mark the beginning of an extensive refurbishment program, with the exciting new-look Camp opening to guests in June 2016. The 12 existing bush pavilions will be re-built, dramatically increasing in size, and each will include new features such as a private dining area, a tranquil outside seating area and a terrace plunge pool -– all perfect for absorbing the surrounding plains and majestic African skies.

Taking out #5 on the illustrious list is Sanctuary Sussi and Chuma in Zambia. Settled amongst the giant ebony trees overlooking the powerful Zambezi River, are 12 delightful tree houses connected by wooden walkways. A mere 12 kilometres upstream from the world-renowned Victoria Falls, guests are able to effortlessly combine wildlife viewing with adrenaline filled adventure. Having recently been the subject of an innovative refurbishment, Sanctuary Sussi and Chuma offers both an enhanced indoor and outdoor living experience.

Sanctuary Retreat’s highest-ranking property, Sanctuary Swala, finds itself at #3 on Condé Nast Traveler’s distinguished list. Simultaneously, the eco-friendly camp was also voted #33 in ‘Best Hotels and Resorts in the World’ category. Each of the 12 pavilions is shaded from the unforgiving African sun by tall acacia trees. Featuring contemporary chic interiors, Sanctuary Swala is a haven of peace and tranquillity, allowing guests to view passing wildlife from the comfort of their own private verandas or from the Camp’s relaxing infinity pool. Within sight of a frequently used water hole, Sanctuary Swala plays host to an array of African wildlife, from lions and leopards to elephants and impala.

Featuring in the Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards, as contenders in both the ‘Top 30 Resorts in Africa’ and ‘Best Hotels and Resorts in the World’ categories, Sanctuary Resorts continues to raise the benchmark in luxury travel and safari experiences.
