We’ve got boat excursions, safari adventures, city escapes and mountain activities and you don’t need to choose whether to kick back and relax or have an adrenaline fuelled day. These places will cover you from that and everything in between.

LE GRAND CONTROLE, FRANCE

The magical history of Versailles unlocked

Set within the gates of the Palace, Le Grande Contrôle opens the door to the royal splendour of Versailles, paying homage to its rich heritage and opulent grandeur through carefully curated, exclusive experiences. Now restored to its former glory, the Chateâu gives you private after hours access to the palace to retrace the steps of its famous French ancestors.

3 nights on a half board basis with dinner by world-renowned chef Alain Ducasse, afternoon tea and after hours tours of the Palace & gardens from £3,470 per person.

ONDULI RIDGE, NAMIBIA

Camouflaged by nature

Named after the resident giraffe of the region, Onduli Ridge is set among the foothills of Namibia’s highest mountain, the Brandberg. With extraordinary views from every vantage point, the meticulous detail of this lodge means it blends seamlessly into the remarkable natural surroundings for a true desert experience in the heart of Damaraland.

3 nights on a fully inclusive basis including a star bed experience, nature drives & walks, solar e-biking and desert-adapted wildlife tracking from £1,750 per person.

LOLEBEZI, ZAMBIA

The home of elephants and leopards

Set in the untouched wilderness of the Lower Zambezi National Park, Lolebezi combines all the luxury you’d expect from a world-class safari camp with modest elegance and simplicity. Head out on foot, vehicle or boat to explore the park famous for its elephant herds and leopard population, as you come nose to nose with majestic animals from every angle.

3 nights on a fully inclusive basis including twice daily game drives, walking & canoeing safaris and catch and release fishing from £3,800 per person.

CASHEL PALACE, IRELAND

A Palladian manor restored to former glory

The decadence of Cashel Palace has been reimagined under the careful watch of the Magnier family, once again bringing to life the grand architecture that dates back to 1732.

The rich Biblical heritage of the region makes it enchanting and fascinating in equal measure.
