Living Life To The Fullest In Africa
Our pick for the best hotel in the world.
Journey with us to South Africa the home and heritage of Nelson Mandela. The Saxon Villa and Spa is one of the most beautiful hotels in the world. One of the best chefs in the world, Werner Snoek resides here at Qunu Grill. For the ultimate African experience, his creations are derived from Saxon’s Organic gardens.
A fabulous meal at Qunu thanks to chef Snoek and his team
I also found a fabulous African Tribal Shawl on Etsy at CricketsCreations hand crafted, just magnificent.

What made our stays at both The Saxon Hotel Villas & Spa and Shambala Zulu Camp was the history and proximity of both retreats. Just a couple hours drive from Sandton in a private chauffeured car provided by Saxon Villa, you are immediately immersed in the anticipation of seeing some of South Africa’s most treasured wildlife. You can’t resist the excitement nor the love and devotion of former South African president and Nobel Prize-winner Nelson Mandela who chose the Saxon as his sanctuary in which to complete his autobiography, Long Walk to Freedom.
