October 2014 – Wilderness Safaris is thrilled to announce that seven of its camps from Botswana, Namibia and Zimbabwe have been listed in the Top 50 Resorts and Safari Camps in Africa category in the 2014 US Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards.
Mombo, Little Mombo, Kings Pool and Little Vumbura were also listed in the Top 20 Safari Camps in Africa category, and both Mombo and Kings Pool made it into the Top 100 Hotels and Resorts in the World. DumaTau and Chitabe camps in Botswana made the Top 50, as well as Little Makalolo in Zimbabwe and Kulala Desert Lodge in Namibia.
“We are extremely proud that once again, readers of Condé Nast have named our camps amongst the best in Africa. We are particularly excited that no less than seven camps made this year’s list from three of our diverse wilderness regions – a huge vote of confidence for the meaningful and life-changing experiences we aim to provide at all of our properties throughout Africa”, said Chris Roche, Wilderness Safaris Chief Marketing Officer.
Over 77 000 readers voted for their favourite hotels, airlines, spas and countries in this annual readers’ survey to showcase the best that the travel world has to offer. All seven camps have an extremely light ecological footprint and are committed to Wilderness Safaris’ 4Cs ethos (Commerce, Conservation, Community and Culture). The camps are also world renowned for offering extraordinary wildlife encounters along with warm local hospitality, delicious fresh food and unparalleled levels of comfort.
“All of our camps and operations embrace a true low impact and high experiential value tourism model. We are extremely proud to operate in some of Africa’s most pristine wilderness areas and look forward to promoting its rich wildlife diversity by welcoming many more guests in the years to come, which will also enable us to build further conservation economies in Africa”, Roche added.
