This month we bring you something truly unique—the world's first ever diamond safari. Ellerman House, in partnership with Benguela Diamonds, is offering its guests an exclusive opportunity to embark on a diamond safari to the mineral-rich west coast of South Africa—a unique place of origin for diamonds worthy of the most exquisite jewellery settings. Benguela Diamonds is named after the predominant current, the cold, nutrient-rich Benguela Current, which flows in a northerly direction off the west coast of South Africa, and the diamonds themselves are rare sea diamonds that can only be dived for. Get flown by private plane to Port Nolloth where you will dive for your very own diamonds.

 

We also take a journey to the wonderful Ngoma Lodge in Botswana. Ngoma Safari Lodge on the Chobe River in Botswana. Opened by Africa Albida Tourism in May 2011 in partnership with the Chobe Enclave Conservation Trust (CECT), the lodge is a five-star bush property, perched on a ridge. The lodge consists of eight luxury suites designed with an emphasis on space, peace and luxury. Set in the Chobe Forest Reserve just outside the Chobe National Park, the Lodge has an elevated view of the legendary Chobe River and game-rich Caprivi floodplains. Expect to see loads of animals and bird species and get pampered in style.

 

In this issue we also chat to award-winning wildlife photographer Isak Pretorius about his work, passion for photography and of course, Africa.

 

Then finally, I go back to one of my favorite places in the entire world - The Victoria Falls Safari Lodge in Zimbabwe, only a few km from one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Victoria Falls. I hope you enjoy this issue as much as I did writing it and until next time, bon voyage!
