There’s nothing like checking into a spectacular hotel where you can relax and recharge after a busy day exploring. All our luxury properties have been handpicked to let you thoroughly enjoy each destination. What’s more, with our range of Scenic Special Stays you’ll also find yourself in hotels that are simply unlike any others, whether it’s their superb position, such as the magnificent Victoria Falls Hotel overlooking Victoria Falls Gorge, or the sheer splendour of their design, such as Durban’s wonderfully colonial Oyster Box.

You can look forward to stays that complement each location, from stunning lagoon view rooms at the Protea Hotel Knysna Quays, to the Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club, which offers a snapshot of Africa from a bygone era.

Stay at historical palaces with pinch-yourself views, such as the Marriott Mena House Hotel in Giza, nestled in the shadows of Egypt’s Great Pyramids, and sleep under starry desert skies in air-conditioned ‘Martian’ geodomes at Sun City Camp in Jordan’s Wadi Rum. With top-tier services and facilities, the wonder never truly ends at havens like these.

Local knowledge

We use knowledgeable local guides, experts and Scenic tour directors across all of our escorted tours because we truly believe that nobody knows an area as well as someone who calls it home. Make the most out of the knowledge that these people harbour as they introduce you to each spectacular destination and experience, allowing you to immerse yourself in the cultures that surround you.
