Luxury and Africa may not go hand in hand but some travel agents and tour operators have come to believe that Africa could be the answer to the question what most luxury insiders have been wondering: what does one offer a jaded tourist with oodles of money. Africa is rich in wildlife and that has turned several tour operators to cash in.
Orient-Express offers great packages for all age groups and is specifically meant for the well heeled family oriented groups. Free rooms for children at the Mount Nelson Hotel and The Westcliff, to specialized concierges and spa menus, you could expect a lot in the package.
You could cruise and enjoy the ravishing beauty of South African wildlife at Khwai River Lodge, Eagle Island Camp and Savute Elephant Camp. Mount Nelson Hotel is located in Cape Town’s cultural centre and could just be what the jaded tourist has been looking forward to. XBox 360 games, a Nintendo Wii, a computer, and big screen TV with a selection of DVDs will keep the children entertained, and older children could also enjoy cooking classes, organized dinners and other group activities. It could be worth a try if you are a familial person.
