Best Wilderness Hotel – Sand Rivers, Selous Game Reserve, Tanzania
Opened by safari expert Richard Bonham in the early 1990s, the Sand Rivers Resort in the Selous Game Reserve in Tanzania is the perfect hideaway for those who love wildlife, sleeping under the stars and dining by candlelight.
Best Beach Hotel – Kaya Mawa, Malawi
A remote retreat on Likoma Island Lake Malawi, the Kaya Mawa Resort is one of Africa’s “most intriguing beach hideaways”.
