Luxury Travel; It’s more than just the thread count!

Having lived in luxury safari lodges for fifteen years, I too, love a touch of elegance. Crispy cotton sheets, private plunge pools with boundless vistas, and the clink of limitless fresh ice in my sundowner preference!

Quite expectedly, many of today’s travellers want so much more than just top-shelf luxury items customarily associated with well-appointed “boutique” hotels. They want to return from a family vacation feeling enlightened after having been immersed in a foreign culture, feeling like they have touched the lives of some, and their visit made a difference to the tribal custodians of the land. Others wish for affirmation that their visit contributed meaningfully and generously to the wildlife of the area, and the conservation efforts practised at their chosen destinations. They are after takeaways of education and enrichment, possibly furthering their appreciation of how lucky they are to live the lifestyle that effortlessly empowers the first-world economies.

The discerning traveller wants to take advantage of “feel good” schemes such as “Pack for a Purpose,” wants to visit and donate to a local school or village or adopt an orphaned elephant to pave the way for its relocation and hopeful long-lived success.

After all, “experience” is the “new luxury”; and it rings well in our hearts and minds, but how do you massage these two important elements into your fairytale holiday of a lifetime?

Combining purpose with luxury is a tricky process, and one that can only be driven by extensive experience and intimate knowledge of you preferred travel destination. You don’t want the locals or wildlife to be exploited, and you certainly don’t want to feel like a voyeur at a local human zoo.
