Top Luxury Hotels in Africa & Indian Ocean

Exotic animals, exotic cultures, and exotic tropical seascapes – the wildest continent on the planet and the swathe of ocean that occupies the space to its east are hands down among the world’s most exciting place to visit, easily competing for bragging rights on the natural, animal and human achievement fronts.

Africa’s majestic Big Five creatures may have lured explorers to its wilderness for centuries, but the Maldives is also home to its own Big Five that inhabit the underwater gardens of the Indian Ocean. The Maldives has its Blue Hole dive spot, and Morocco has its fabled blue city. The legendary big wild of Zambia meets the big blue of the Maldives and Seychelles in a showdown in which the traveler is always the winner.

​Africa and the Indian Ocean may be mother nature’s finest flex of the amazing, but the destinations within these two vast regions, including Sri Lanka and Morocco, showcase some of mankind’s most colorful – and aromatic – expressions of culture. Whether you’re a dream chaser by day or star hunter by night, there’s a story to be told and an adventure to behold in this expansive wet ‘n’ wild slice of the world.
