Luxury African Holiday

Luxury African Holiday

There are some words in the English language that get bandied about on a regular basis in a number of different contexts.  “Luxury” is one of them.  Particularly in the tourism industry, this word is used in several ways, to describe, well, just about everything.  So before we go any further here, let’s get things straight.

The definition of “luxury” according to online, is as follows:

  • a material object, service, etc., conducive to sumptuous living, usually a delicacy, elegance, or refinement of living rather than a necessity.
  • free or habitual indulgence in or enjoyment of comforts and pleasures in addition to those necessary for a reasonable standard of well-being.
  • a means of ministering to such indulgence or enjoyment.
  • a pleasure out of the ordinary allowed to oneself.

When it comes to luxury in Africa, we all have a specific picture in mind: a beautiful and stylish five-star lodge with all the comforts and amenities one could ask for, situated in the middle of an open bush, a desert savannah, or a tropical forest, with wildlife roaming  close by (, although, not too close!)  The call of the wild and the warm African sun bring visitors from all over the world, but it is the quality and variety of tours and accommodations that sustain the African tourism industry.  

Everybody wants good value for money, and a one-of-a-kind experience to go home and rave about.  But “luxury” is specific and comes with a price.  In our search to find a completely unique option for a luxury African holiday, here is one of the best destinations we can find:

Luxury Madagascar Holiday Packages

There are two special Barefoot Luxury Explorer trips in South-Eastern Madagascar, offered by Jenman African Safaris.  For either 8 days or 11 days, visitors experience the beauty and wonder of this magical destination in distinct African style.  Exclusive accommodations include The Pavillon deL’Emyrne, Mandrare River Camp and Manafiafy Lodge, all of which offer unspoilt natural wildlife and views in the most intimate and magical settings.  

On arrival, guests are greeted by the various species of Lemur in the midst of exotic rain forests.  Activities include snorkelling, whale watching, canoeing in the mangroves, early morning boat trips for wetland birding, fishing and day/night walks through the sacred forests.  

The lemurs, the landscapes, sunsets, secluded beaches, baobabs and mangroves create a unique atmosphere in Madagascar, and the accommodation and services are all five-star luxury and good value for money.  If you are looking for something completely different, indulge your sense of enjoyment: Madagascar is a trip of a lifetime.
