Alphonse Island Resort, Seychelles
No doubt you have heard the stories from wide-eyed anglers returning from the heart of the Indian Ocean. For those who have not yet been, the tales, while true, are hard to swallow: steady streams of large, aggressive bonefish flooding pristine flats, huge trevally and barracuda, mysterious schools of super-charged milkfish and blue water rich with sailfish and wahoo. Often referred to in recent times as the best bonefishing in the world, the only downside to the Seychelles is that once you have fly fished here you will be forever spoiled. To complement the saltwater fly fishing is the unpretentious luxury of Alphonse Island Resort. Truly a world-class resort, Alphonse offers guests refined international cuisine, tasteful waterfront chalets complete with private verandas, open air showers, air conditioning, en-suite bathrooms
Additional experiences at Alphonse Island Resort are equally rich. Guests can choose from a list of incredible activities and amenities including: world class diving and snorkeling, sailing lasers, stand up paddle boarding, canoeing, wind-surfing, tennis, a grand pool, and a glorious beach that entertains the majority of the island’s visitors.
Chiawa Camp, Zambia
On the banks of the Zambezi River, under a grove of evergreen Mahogany trees, Chiawa Camp holds the prime position in the heart of Zambia’s Lower Zambezi National Park. First explored by David Livingston and later developed by the Cumings family, the region has become one of Africa’s most desirable, sought after safari destinations. A stunning thatched lounge/bar area with upstairs viewing deck provides one of the best views of the Zambezi. Additionally, guests can enjoy fine cuisine on the al fresco dining veranda and cocktails around an open campfire before retiring to luxurious tents. Also available for guests enjoyment and relaxation are two perfectly positioned game viewing hides and a plunge pool with timber sun deck overlooking the Zambezi.
