Destination Focus: The Makgadikgadi

Makgadikgadi Horse Riding

New Project The biggest salt pans in the world – covering an area of over 15,000 km2 – Botswana’s Makgadikgadi region is, quite simply, unlike anywhere else on earth.  Less than an hour’s flight from Maun, this landscape was once a lake larger than Switzerland and as lush as the Okavango Delta. Tens of thousands […]

Destination Focus: The Lower Zambezi

New Project Considered the most magical river in Africa, the Zambezi River flows through six different countries before it reaches the sea. Two of these, Zambia and Zimbabwe, are home to an enigmatic region known as the Lower Zambezi. For some, this landscape may be familiar; on the Zambian side lies the Lower Zambezi National […]

Destination Focus: Namibia

New Project Unique is a much-overused term, but really the only adjective that does justice to Namibia. With the look and feel of planet Mars, Namibia remains truly otherworldly. A country all about vast, open landscapes, dusty red earth, soil and rocks dominate the imagination. Incomparable to any other, Namibia is a completely stand-alone destination; […]

Back from Botswana

Safari Lodge Botswana AMADI Journeys

New Project Regular travel to the African continent allows me to ensure that the destinations, experiences and properties we recommend remain as special as they were when we initially discovered them – as well as learning about what is new and worthwhile since my last visit. Last month saw me travel to Botswana’s Okavango Delta […]

Destination Focus: Madagascar

Raphael’s Recent Adventures

Raphael's Recent Adventures

New Project As someone working in travel, it’s imperative that I spend a lot of time on the ground. Doing so ensures that I’m able to thoroughly discover, uncover and, in turn, share my findings with our clients.  Today I wanted to share my thoughts on the travel I’ve done this year: places I’ve visited, […]

What Luxury Means to Us

New Project Luxury is a word that, despite being overused, still carries a lot of meaning in the travel world. As overused words can lose their meaning and potency, and because we feel we are now in an era of ‘new luxury’, we wanted to share what luxury means to us, and to me. Silence […]

Destination Focus: Chad

New Project At AMADI we are continually inspired by, and interested in, new frontiers. By this, we mean locations that are becoming more amenable to foreign travel, but which maintain strong elements of adventure, discovery and excitement – as well as small tourist numbers. In line with our clients, we love destinations that push us […]

Design Focus

New Project A question we ask ourselves time and time again when we stay in hotels, villas, lodges and tented camps across Africa; when it comes to design and architecture, what exactly is it that distinguishes the good from the bad? For us, properties with good architecture and design are those that blend with their […]
