Condé Nast Traveler, the world’s premier travel magazine has chosen the 2013 GOLD LIST of the best hotels in Africa & Middle East. It is not surprising that South Africa is one of the outstanding destinations, but the fact that not less than 14 properties (almost half of the listed properties) have been chosen is remarkable and proof once again that our country is one of the top destinations on this earth – if not the best!
Condé Nast: ‘Nowhere is the call of the wild stronger than in Africa, which continues to lure travelers with its promise of animals up close and untamed.
If there is one overriding theme among these regions, it’s the dominance of South Africa. The country, about twice the size of Texas, remains a powerhouse with almost half of the properties in these lists. In fact, the seven highest scoring properties in the whole of Africa and the Middle East are in South Africa. Six of them are safari camps whose promise of wildlife—despite the current poaching crisis—is as much a draw today as it was when the first safaris set off in the 1800s.’
These are exciting times for the South African travel industry and for us as a DMC. South Africa will not only become even more attractive for leisure holidays but also for group and incentive travel programs as well as a conference and meetings destination.
