Ras Kutani - the perfect balance

The view over the lagoon and sea from your huge, super super king size bed!
I have been to many beach resorts, lay on many a sunbed and, in fairness, loved most of them. It wasn't until I went to Ras Kutani that I realised the just what I had been missing.

Location: Southern Tanzania, Africa

Good for: Relaxation, wildlife and luxury waterside lodges, providing a stunning view over a freshwater lagoon and the crashing waves of a spectacular coast.

When to go: It's cooler here May - through to August and then warms up as you progress into the rainy season.

African paradise - Ruaha, Tanzania

A wild and remote paradise for nature lovers...

Location: Southern Tanzania, Africa

Good for: Wildlife, flora and Fauna, an intimate safari in luxury surroundings.

When to go: This tented camp is closed in April and May at the height of the rain cycle. Anytime of year has its benefits here as Jongomero camp is located on the banks of the Ruaha River which provides plenty of viewing opportunities whether it is in full flow or not.

Snowlife - La Clusaz

Location: The French Alps, close to Annecy -Aravis Region

Good for: Great skiing with a picturesque village atmosphere

When to go: We went in January, which is a nice quite time, but I can't imagine that any time in ski season would be bad - plus as they are now opening the chalet we stayed in for summer rental, I think it would be a great choice for a summer break too.
