Voldanoes National Park Rwanda
Bisate Lodge is located in the natural amphitheatre of an eroded volcanic cone and has dramatic views of the peaks of the volcanoes Bisoke and Karisimbi rearing up through the Afro-alpine forests of nearby Volcanoes National Park. Six luxurious en-suite villas maximise comfort and views while retaining environmental principles and reflecting the culture of rural Rwanda. Each guest contributes to Bisate’s biodiversity conservation and local community projects – making a far-reaching impact on an iconic Critically Endangered species: the mountain gorilla. Aside from tracking one of the several habituated gorilla groups, activities include visiting nearby natural attractions, hiking to Dian Fossey’s grave, and observing the Park’s group of Endangered endemic golden monkeys. Walks on Bisate’s property offer birding and participation in the reforestation programme. INSIDER’S TIP: Bisate is within easy driving distance of Volcanoes National Park Headquarters, from where gorilla treks depart daily.
Voldanoes National Park Rwanda
Boasting breathtaking views of the Sabyinyo, Gahinga and Muhabura volcanoes and surrounded by high-altitude forests, Singita Kwitonda Lodge offers an experience unlike any of Singita’s other destinations. With its exceptional natural beauty, environmentally conscious luxury and transformative, purpose-driven experiences, the lodge was designed in response to this remarkable location, and the eight contemporary suites (as well as the private four-bedroom villa – Kataza House) are linked by volcanic rock pathways to the central lodge.
The interiors emphasise local design and handcrafted details adorn the carefully planned spaces. Layered textures and colours enhance the reflective quality of this tranquil haven and an experiential enclave offers free-flowing indoor and outdoor areas. A convivial fire pit, interactive kitchen, bar-deli and wine cellar complete the picture.
SINGITA BOULDERS LODGE
Kruger South Africa
Boulders Lodge has a contemporary air of tranquillity that honours Africa in an authentic way. Inspiring the name Boulders was an enormous boulder that sat right in the middle of the place where the wine cellar was to be built. A simple decision was made to build the cellar around the boulder!
Guests can enjoy wrap-around views from most parts of the natural stone lodge, and the lookout deck offers the perfect spot from which to observe wildlife drawn to the Sand River. The quiet pond alongside the thatched lounge area allows the light and the landscape inside to the wide open spaces, where straw baskets, neutral shades and textured fabrics complement wooden furniture.
Singita Boulders Lodge offers twelve suites, all with their own en suite bathroom and shower, outside shower, private heated swimming pool, double-sided fireplace, mini bar and fridge, room mini safe, air-conditioning, overhead fans, private lounge, direct dial telephones and game-viewing deck.
Cape Town South Africa
The Cellars-Hohenort is located in "Cape Town's Vineyard", the historical Constantia Valley on the breathtaking slopes of Table Mountain. All 51 rooms and suites boast panoramic views of the iconic mountain or over the 9.5 acres of beautifully manicured gardens. Cape Town is South Africa's oldest city, famous for its diverse cultures, natural beauty, cuisine and wine.
The Cellars-Hohenort is ideally situated as a central point from which to experience the diversity of activities, including Cape Point, Robben Island, Table Mountain, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, Constantia Valley Wine Route, the famous beaches of Boulders and Camps Bay. A mere fifteen minute drive will take you to the center of the city and the V&A Waterfront.
Back at the hotel there are two award-winning dining experiences, these include Greenhouse, one of South Africa's Top 10 rated restaurants (EatOut 2018) where cuisine focuses on South African ingredients with modern interpretations, and The Conservatory, serving simple, beautiful fare and a selection of what was Liz McGrath's favourite dishes.
The relaxing Fresh Wellness Spa, intimate conference rooms, tennis court and much more ensures that The Cellars-Hohenort is the result of what was Liz McGrath's more than twenty years of hard work, love and endless inspiration.
