A message from the Distinctive team – 06 April 2020

We hope that all our clients, partners and suppliers past and present are safe and well.

After a frantic few weeks we’re delighted to say that all of our passengers are now safely back in the UK. So we can now move onto the next phase and co-ordinate re-booking passengers whose future holidays will be impacted by the FCO’s travel advice.

In line with government advice our office is closed but we will continue to work from home.

Our revised working hours until 31 May 2020 are as below.

Mon-Fri: 10am – 4pm
Sat & Sun: Closed

Stay safe & well
Team Distinctive

Scenically located in a glade, known as ‘the place of the klipspringer’ (Mbuzi Mawe), and guarded by three million year-old granite towers, this luxury tented-camp in the Serengeti is unique. Carefully sited on one of the main annual migration corridors, the camp enjoys a ringside seat for one of the greatest wildlife spectacles on earth.

Ngorongoro Serena Safari Lodge

This unique lodge in Tanzania clings to the rim of the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater, a World Heritage Site and the largest and most perfect volcanic caldera on Earth. Long and low, the lodge is built from local river stone and camouflaged with indigenous vines. Designed to blend completely into the landscape, it is entirely invisible from the floor of the Crater 600 metres below.

Serena Beach Resort & Spa

Fringed by white beaches, and shaded by coconut palms, this silver ribbon of the Swahili coastline offers the ultimate tropical paradise. Bright white against the blue sky, set in extensive tropical gardens, the architecture of the resort replicates the winding lanes and colourful market places of a traditional 13th century Swahili town.

This boutique lodge, an oasis is in a wildlife wonderland, offers unrivalled panoramic views over the game-rich floodplain and Chobe River. Expect a vast and diverse array of wildlife as knowledgeable guides take you on safaris through the Chobe National Park, lazy afternoons by the pool and stunning dinners under African stars.

Verney’s Camp

Verney’s Camp is based in a private concession in the heart of Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe. The Camp is located at Verney’s Pan, which is situated on a large open floodplain surrounded by teak forest typical of Hwange National Park. The waterhole at Verney’s plays host to numerous animals and is a playground for the famous elephant herds of Hwange.

Kambaku Lodges

Kambaku River Sands is an all-inclusive, five-star lodge consisting of 10 luxury thatched suites. Kambaku Safari Lodge is a four-star family friendly lodge with 8 elegantly thatched chalets traditionally set around the waterhole.

The Ant Collection

Ant’s Nest and Ant’s Hill are owned and run by Ant and Tessa Baber. They carry with them a love for Africa’s wide-open spaces, adventure and a passion for its wildlife. In the mid-1990’s Ant and Tessa renovated an old ranch house, which became Ant’s Nest and, in 2003, built Ant’s Hill above a spectacular gorge, designing each room to make the most of the magnificent view. The two beautiful bush homes are located on their own private game reserve, nestled in the folds of the magnificent Waterberg region of the Limpopo Province.
