Amalfi Coast, Italy
Overlooking the Mediterranean sea, the precipitously picturesque Amalfi Coast is home to some of Italy’s finest hotels and restaurants. With a beautiful coast of rugged cliffs and sandy coves, the town of Positano is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday. Wander down the little lanes and discover shops and artisan stalls, then make your way to the beach for an afternoon of soaking up the sun. Stay in the Il San Pietro di Positano or the luxurious La Sirenuse, a firm favourite amongst celebrities such as Poppy Delevingne.
Sabi Sand Reserve, South Africa
Take a trip to South Africa, the land of rich cultural diversity and natural beauty. Escape the cities of Cape Town and Johannesburg in search for elephants, lions, rhinos, leopards and buffalo in the infamous private Sabi Sand Game Reserve adjacent to South Africa’s flagship Kruger National Park. A stay in the Singita Boulders Lodge is highly recommended, here you can truly connect with wildlife and according to designer Monique Pean, can wake up to a breathtaking view of monkeys playing outside your window. With plenty of photographic opportunities whilst wildlife spotting, this safari holiday is an amazing and unique experience.
