Africa Travel - New Hotel & Lodge Openings

Africa Travel, the UK’s premier specialist dealing with travel to Africa are constantly on the lookout for the best new and unique luxury properties. Here are just a few of their favourites that are due to open in the near future.

Miavana, Madagascar
Due to open in December, Miavana was designed by the same people behind the award winning North Island Seychelles and aims to bring a new level of luxury to Madagascar.  The ultra-lux lodge is located on the unspoilt private island of Nosy Ankao off the northeast coast of the country and is only accessible by helicopter from the mainland making it the ultimate luxury hideaway.  Surrounded by the pristine waters of the Indian Ocean, the property will consist of just 14 large one, two, three bedroom villas with their own indoor and outdoor living spaces that step right onto the sand. Activities available to guests will include scuba diving, fly-fishing, and dolphin and whale watching trips. For guests looking for a more relaxing experience, there will be a world-class spa offering a wide variety of treatments.


The Silo at the V&A  Waterfront, Cape Town
Set to open in March 2017, The Silo is part of Liz Biden’s famed Royal Portfolio, a collection of exclusive hotels, lodges and private residences located in iconic destinations across South Africa. Housed in a converted historic grain silo, the hotel will occupy a prime position overlooking the V&A Waterfront surrounded by galleries, restaurants and bars and will set a new standard in luxury and design in Cape Town. Each of the 28 suites and a lavish penthouse will be individually designed featuring bespoke furnishings and 18-foot windows offering magnificent views of Robben Island, Table Mountain, Devil’s Peak and Signal Hill.


Bisate Lodge
Due to open its doors in June 2017, Bisate Lodge will set a new standard of luxury for lodges in Rwanda and will make the perfect base for a mountain gorilla trekking holiday. Situated within the amphitheatre of an eroded volcanic cone, the 27-hectare Bisate site is incomparable in terms of its natural splendour, with sweeping views towards the Karisimbi, Bisoke and Mikeno volcanoes. Featuring six luxurious forest villas, the real generosity of Bisate in the Rwandan context will be the amount of private and exclusive space that surrounds the Lodge. Each spacious forest villa will comprise a generous yet intimate combination of bedroom, reception space and bathroom, all warmed by a central fireplace and with breathtaking views out across a private deck towards Mount Bisoke. A truly extraordinary property that Africa Travel cannot wait to experience.
