Cape Town-based Go2Africa is pleased to share the Ultimate Safari Sojourn and top experiences travelers can look forward to in 2023. With new flights offered from the United States, new luxury safari camps opening and destinations perfect for every occasion, there has never been a better time to visit Africa. The Go2Africa team has committed to curating exceptional travel journeys since 1998, with 100 percent of its revenue remaining in Africa to support local communities and conservation projects.
United Airlines now provides new direct flights between Washington Dulles Internatioanl Airport and Cape Town International Airport. Flights began in November 2022. United Airlines also resumed three flights per week from Newark (EWR) to Cape Town. Delta Air Lines added a new nonstop flight from Cape Town to Atlanta (ATL), complementing Delta’s three-times-a-week service between Johannesburg and Atlanta.
“Go2Africa is thrilled that travelers will have a new option to fly from Atlanta non-stop to Johannesburg and Cape Town,” said Maija De Rijk-Uys, managing director, Go2Africa. “This new Delta route will allow US visitors to easily access some of Africa’s unique gems such as the winelands, Kruger National Park, and the many food and art experiences offered in both Cape Town and Johannesburg.”
Olkeri Camp, located in Tanzania, is the newest addition to the Entara Lodges & Camps portfolio and offers eight spacious, self-contained guest tents situated along seasonal watercourses. A dining area and lounge is nestled at the base of two ancient baobab trees, overlooking a waterhole for the perfect armchair safari experience. The camp will be open throughout the year and activities will include game drives, walking safaris, fly camping, cultural tours, night game drives and hot-air balloon safaris.
Botswana’s Okavango Explorers Camp is shaded by silvery-green leadwood trees beside the remote Selinda Spillway, where you will find the timeless tents of Okavango Explorers Camp. This is another addition to new safari camps in Africa, creating a safari experience reminiscent of exploring the unknown African hinterland. It exudes a spirit of the romance of yesteryear and can be booked exclusively, perfect for friends or families wanting to take the whole camp for extended stays.
Lolebezi Safari Lodge, in Zambia, is set in a prime location along the Zambezi River. This lodge combines all the swankiness of a luxury lodge with a down-to-earth closeness with nature. Lolebezi Safari Lodge is ideal for the eco-conscious traveler, as the lodge is powered by an off-the-grid solar farm. Additionally, the water supply and wastewater are managed to ensure no pollution enters the river. During the build, trees were used in the design and the dining area was built from reclaimed railway sleepers. This raw and untamed part of Africa is best known for its sightings of buffalo and elephant, as well as some safari favorites including lion, leopard and hyena.
Tswalu is one of the top places to consider staying when looking into a place to stay in South Africa’s Kalahari. Opening March 2023, Loapi Tented Camp is an eco-friendly, luxury tented camp in South Africa, with six private safari homes offering an immersive wilderness experience. This is an exclusive safari adventure, complete with a dedicated butler, private chef, private safari vehicle, guide and tracker.
Sala Beach House is a new and luxurious 5-star coastal escape perched above the sea, providing private access to the tidal pool and beautiful beach at South Africa’s Thompson’s Bay. Activities in the area include snorkeling, coastal walks, deep-sea fishing, golf and surfing, making Sala Beach House the perfect place to create a memorable holiday and celebrate special occasions. The North Coast of KwaZulu-Natal is well-known for its picturesque scenery and gorgeous beaches lapped by the warm Indian Ocean. This stretch of coastline is also known as Dolphin Coast, named after the bottlenose dolphins that play in these coastal waters.
To celebrate its upcoming 25th anniversary, Go2Africa created The Ultimate Safari Sojourn: Southern & East Africa, with a starting price of $93,510 per person, taking in as much of the continent’s wildlife and natural wonders as possible in 23 days. The result is a spectacular once-in-a-lifetime adventure, stretching from Cape Town to Nairobi, experiencing game drives, helicopter tours and marine safaris, all while staying in the best accommodations Africa has to offer.

Homer and Janet by Homer Review
The Marais District, covering swaths of Paris’ 3rd and 4th arrondissments, has a distinctively gritty glamour that reveals it to be one of the city’s great incubators for new French food, fashion and lifestyle trends. It is here Moïse Sfez took on the challenge of creating street food establishments Homer in 2017 and Janet by Homer in 2022, doing it in such a way they both transcend the novelty of being regional American comfort food offered at stylized lunch counters matching up with New England lobster shacks and New York delis. Overwhelming local response and Sfez winning the 2018 Lobster Roll World’s Championship title in Portland, Maine, solidified him as a Paris restaurateur and one of France’s hottest culinary stars.

Review: The Shay – Destination by Hyatt
ARRIVAL/CHECK-IN: For a two-night business trip, I stayed at The Shay – Destination by Hyatt in Culver City. The lobby is not just a place to check in but truly a place to gather. As you walk into the hotel from the valet, you’ll find several places to go: spaces to sit and talk, to sit and wait, or to work, plus an area to play billiards and even a bar to get a drink or sit by a cozy fire. Off to the left, the check-in desk is more secluded than the main lobby. Check-in was easy with a friendly staff who verified my reserved room and length of stay. They explained the ways to get around town without a car, told me about the restaurants on property, and asked if I’d like to make a reservation, which I had already arranged. It could not have been any smoother, and everyone welcomed me with a warm smile.
