Natural World Safaris Debuts NWS RAW Itineraries

Bespoke travel outfitter Natural World Safaris has launched NWS RAW, a safari concept that reveals a different side to often-visited destinations. This is the newest addition to the NWS Select services, providing travel experiences that explore the last wild frontiers.

Responding to the desire from seasoned travelers to move beyond bucket-list destinations and delve deeper into a location, NWS RAW navigates unsung wildernesses and lesser-known areas. Clients will take a step off the beaten track to discover a country’s raw side with the support of an expert team and structured itinerary to safely explore the new regions.

Some of the NWS RAW itineraries include:

Bears, Wolves and Snow Leopards of the Himalayas

This itinerary takes guests deep into the Indian Himalayas in search of wolves, brown bears and the snow leopard. The high-altitude locations visited on this itinerary are cold, harsh, mountainous, and rarely traveled. Along the way, experience seldom-visited Ladakh region. The 11-day itinerary starts at £5,545 (about $7,621), excluding international flights.

Journey into the Maliau Basin, Borneo

Venture into the heart of one of Borneo’s most untouched wildernesses, the Maliau Basin. Ringed by a huge escarpment, this conservation area measures approximately 230 square miles and contains rivers, waterfalls, vast tracts of forest and a large amount of biodiversity. Strap on hiking boots and discover this rarely-seen wilderness on an active trekking safari. A five-day safari costs from £995 (about $1,367) per person, excluding international flights.

Uganda Kidepo by Air

Kidepo National Park gives African enthusiasts the chance to experience a lesser known part of Uganda for intimate, remote wildlife encounters with an array of game and bird life. This short-fly in safari allows guests to explore via game drives and nature walks to take in the park’s landscapes and capture wildlife photography. A five-day safari costs from £2,310 (about $3,175) per person, excluding international flights.

Rixos Saadiyat Island – The All Inclusive Resort with All the ‘à la Carte’ Feels

As Abu Dhabi’s first all-inclusive hotel, Rixos Saadiyat Island is setting standards, others are watching. The Luxe Diary checked in.

Read our review of Rixos Saadiyat Island – the all-inclusive resort with all the ‘à la carte’ feels.

Turkish hotel group Rixos has made a swift but impressive entry into the UAE hotel ecosystem. With its resorts on Palm Jumeirah and in Ras Al Khaimah it brought a fresh brand of hospitality – and in its 2018 arrival into the capital introduced something largely still a novelty in the UAE – the “ultra all-inclusive” concept.

Where the RAK resort, on lively Al Mariah Island, has something of a party reputation, Abu Dhabi’s tranquil by comparison Saadiyat Island was always going to offer a contrast.

Checking In.

For starters, there’s an epic feel to the arrival lobby, a grand space just on the right side of ostentatious; blending stained glass, ornate ceilings and ubiquitous marble flooring. A subtle Ottoman influence creeps into the design, which also channels art deco via occasionally dramatic furniture.

Once checked in, a reception assistant ushers you to your room – in our case a garden-facing double with a deep, furnished balcony.  Those epic but cheerful design details from downstairs feed into bedrooms where curious ornaments accompany warmly coloured furnishings.

The Concept.

The capital’s favourite beachfront is beginning to fill up with resorts. Rixos Saadiyat Island contrasts its neighbours by taking the all-inclusive concept already successfully pioneered in RAK and non-UAE resorts and applying it to an elegant five-star resort with all the amenities and F&B you would hope for, but without the hefty final price tag.

As anyone who knows the Turkish hotel group’s Dubai properties will concur, this also comes with an element of fun. These include the hotel “skater waiters” who whizz around on in-line skates taking refreshments to guests around the main pool. And, with the all-inclusive model, you’re not having to sign a slip every time you snack or sip.

Opened last October, the Rixos model – a regular feature in European destinations – enables guests to better budget their staycation while indulging in a resort blessed with architecture that blends Arabic tradition with modern amenities to Insta-loving effect.

The F&B.

After being under-whelmed by the minibar fridge – the most inspiring contents arguably the soft drinks choice and tubes of Smarties – the resort’s extensive F&B assortment beckoned.

While your package includes all, you are advised to reserve a table at a la carte options to avoid disappointment; such as Japanese outlet Aja Asian & Teppanyaki, which offers a short but solid menu and a fun, if slightly brief, teppanyaki experience inside and out.

Generous, well presented food had Mermaid standing out alongside fresh decor matched with a nicely cooked range of Mediterranean seafood dishes, including stunning octopus, meats and salads.

That lobby elegance also permeates L’Olivio – delivering pasta and pizza in European-inspired ambience – while Orient handles Oriental Turkish cuisine within stylish surroundings.

People’s is a stark contrast with bright, thoroughly modern casual dining granted beach views. Beating all the above for sheer scale and instant choice is all-day dining restaurant Turquoise.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner service scours territories from Arabia to India to tender a huge array of dishes. The first sitting includes regular favourites alongside Turkish staples such as menemen – posh scrambled eggs – and spicy sausage. The Vitamin Bar offers another nutritional top-up.

The Setting on Saadiyat.

Saadiyat is known for its popularity among nesting turtles, so the resort’s lush natural beach is accessed via a wooden boardwalk that crosses these creatures’ favoured sites.

With the late summer heat at full setting numerous wave-facing loungers with umbrellas are serviced by a wooden booth stocked with cold drinks, while the main pool boasts a swim-up bar, plenty of loungers and – importantly if you have kids – food carts serving Baskin Robbins ice cream, fresh juices and pretzels.

Sensitive illumination embraces the resort come sundown, including a large courtyard beyond the lobby and Lounge Bar brought to life by live music and DJs as guests share shisha (at extra cost) in sunken seating areas.

The Final Word.

The Rixos all-inclusive concept began in Antalya, Turkey, in the early 2000s and while premium adult refreshment brands may occasionally be lacking, there’s satisfaction in not having to sign slips after each order or put the credit card through its paces again on check-out.

“What we offer is peace of mind, knowing that there won’t be any hidden costs or extra bills to settle at the end of your stay,” explains Rixos Saadiyat Island General Manager Burcak Orak. “What you set out to pay upon booking with us is what you will pay at the end of your stay, while having had no restrictions with food and beverages during that time in the resort.” As for those speedy poolside waiters, they are trained in-house, reveals the boss.

“This is new for Abu Dhabi but not for Rixos – this skater waiter/waitress programme started almost 10 years before in Rixos, Turkey,” he adds.

The Napa Valley Wine Train Adds One More Quattro Vino Tour

The Napa Valley Wine Train has announced the continued expansion of its Quattro Vino Tours, which will now include the Famiglia Tour as its fourth journey. Joining the current tours – Legacy, Estate and Collective – the Famiglia Tour will offer a culinary and wine adventure with stops at three Napa Valley wineries including Silverado Vineyards, Whitehall Lane Winery, and Grgich Hills Estate aboard a renovated lounge car. Plus, for a limited time, guests can enjoy an exclusive kick-off rate of $299 when booking the Famiglia Tour.

With the tour’s focus on family, The Napa Valley Wine Train’s new Famiglia Tour partners with top family-run wineries. Established in 1981 by Ron and Diane Miller, Silverado Vineyards has been family-owned by the Millers for three generations. After taking a luxury shuttle from the train, passengers will experience views of Napa Valley and the Stags Leap District from the winery’s stone terrace, taste a selection of rare Silverado Vineyards wines and learn about the storied estate.

Located in St. Helena, Whitehall Lane Winery is a family-owned winery that was founded in 1979, but the history of the soil cultivation dates back two centuries. The Leonardini family of San Francisco became the owners of the estate in 1993, updating the winemaking methods, instituting a new barrel-aging program and continuing to source the finest vineyards. After an introduction to Whitehall Lane’s winemaking process in its Estate Gardens, guests will enjoy a private tour and a flight of high-end wines.

Grgich Hills Estate was founded in 1977 by Miljenko “Mike” Grgich and Austin Hills of the Hills Bros. coffee company after Grgich’s 1973 Chateau Montelena Chardonnay won at the 1976 Paris Tasting. Violet Grgich, Mike Grgich’s daughter, now manages the winery and is continuing its legacy of family ownership. The Famiglia Tour guests will hear about Miljenko “Mike” Grgich’s journey to becoming a renowned Napa Valley winemaker, explore the historic grounds and cellars, and sample exclusive wines primarily crafted for club members.

The other Quattro Vino Tours:

  • The Legacy Tour includes tastings and tours at Robert Mondavi, Charles Krug and V. Sattui
  • The Estate Tour includes tastings and tours at Domain Chandon, Hall and Inglenook
  • The Collective Tour includes tastings and tours at Raymond, Beringer and St. Supéry

The Quattro Vino tours begin with a sparkling wine tasting, followed by a four-course Napa Valley-style meal curated by the Napa Valley Wine Train’s Executive Chef Donald Young, and tastings at three of Napa’s iconic wineries on each tour. After departing from the station at 10:15 a.m., guests embark on a six-hour, 36-mile round-trip journey from the historic town of Napa to the three premier wineries aboard a 1950s-era lounge car, arriving back at the train station at 4:15 p.m.

Tickets for each of the Quattro Vino tours start at $352 per person and include train fare, a four-course Napa Valley-style meal, and tours and tastings at the prominent wineries. When booking the Famiglia Tour, guests can call or make a reservation online to receive a special offer of $299 for a limited time.

5 Railway Journeys That Will Blow Your Mind

Forget flying, these railway trips step up the luxury for a long and relaxing journey. Sail through the countryside and see what your destinations have to offer.

The Trans-Siberian Railway

Undoubtedly the world’s greatest railway journey. The Trans-Siberian Railway runs like a steel ribbon across mysterious Russia connecting east and west from Moscow over the Urals. You’ll glide across the magnificent and endless steppe and alongside the shore of the world’s largest freshwater lake. The Trans-Siberian Railway is the longest railway in the world. Built between 1891 and 1916 to connect Moscow with the Far-East city of Vladivostok.

The Orient Express

The Orient Express in all its splendour.

Originally created in 1883! The Orient Express was a showcase of luxury and comfort at a time when traveling was still rough and dangerous. In 2009, the Orient Express ceased to operate, reportedly as a “victim of high-speed trains and cut-rate airlines”.  However, the private company of The Venice-Simplon Orient Express train continues to run from London to Venice and to other destinations in Europe, including the original route from Paris to Istanbul.

The Bullet trains

Japan’s high-speed bullet trains, also known as Shinkansen trains, offer visitors an experience like no other with speeds reaching up to 320 km/hr! The main Shinkansen lines with bullet trains include Tokaido, Sanyo, Tohoku, Joetsu, Nagano, and Kyushu. Popular routes include Tokyo to Osaka and Tokyo to Nagano with frequent and punctual departures. Hop on and off the rails in cities like Kyoto, Nagoya, and Yokohama along the way!

Jasper to Vancouver, Canada

The journey Jasper to Vancouver, Canada

The pricey Rocky Mountaineer train is not the only way to cross the Canadian Rockies. Arguably the more satisfying option is to slide down to Vancouver from the ski resort of Jasper on The Canadian. The iconic train that rolls in across the plains from Toronto in far-off Ontario, 20 hours away. As it squeezes its way through the mountains, passengers can gaze out from observation cars and stylish art deco-style lounges at moose, eagles and, if they’re lucky, the occasional bear.

Alausi to Palmira, Ecuador

Don’t look down! Alausi to Palmira, Ecuador

This 50-mile stretch of the railway – a section of the 273-mile line between the coastal port of Guayaquil and the capital Quito – is something of a miracle. Engineers in the 19th century were faced with a climb of nearly 10,000ft and the small matter of scaling a mountain. Their solution: these astonishing zigzags carved out of the almost perpendicular cliffs of La Nariz del Diablo (The Devil’s Nose). Riding on the train roof is, sadly, no longer allowed. However, it is the one-hour ascent that really gets the blood pumping.

Kids of the 1% can now enjoy Alice in Wonderland themed tea parties while cruising in a private jet

Alice’s famous adventure in Wonderland may have begun with her falling down a rabbit hole, but VistaJet is taking a slice of her journey to the skies. The charter plane company has teamed up with Sharky & George –an event planning duo that are famous for their epic kiddie parties – to offer Mad Tea Parties on board a private jet!

These Alice in Wonderland inspired parties come with a starting price of $4000, and that doesn’t count the $12,000 you need to actually charter the jet!

The experience includes actors dressed as characters from the world famous kids’ book. These trained entertainers also engage the kids in games and activities that are tailored to their ages.

From attempting arts and crafts to sampling sweet treats all inspired by the world of Wonderland, there’s never a dull moment for kids in this party plane.

You can also opt for a Kingsman themes adventure or opt to make your movie in-flight!

While private jets with parties for kids may seem like a niche concept, Matteo Atti, executive vice president feels like they are meeting a gap in the market.

“Given that one in every four VistaJet flights has a child on board, we saw the opportunity to build something incredibly special for our younger passengers,” he told Bloomberg. “If you can trust us with your family, you can trust us with anything,” he says.

19 Things You Didn’t Know About Namibia, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s ‘Chosen’ Honeymoon Spot

The west coast of the Atlantic Ocean. Giant moving sand dunes. Sandwich Harbour - part of Namib-Naukluft National Park, Namibia

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has chosen Namibia as their honeymoon destination, a source has “confirmed” to Travel + Leisure – an excellent choice we say.

Here are 19 facts about the staggeringly beautiful African destination…

1. There’s a lot of space

The name ‘Namib’ translates as “vast place”, which is apt given that Namibia is one of the least crowded destinations on the planet. Only Greenland, the Falkland Islands, Mongolia and Western Sahara (in that order) have fewer people per square kilometre.

2. Nearly half of the country is protected

Namibia takes conservation seriously. In fact, more than 40 percent of the country is under conservation management. It was also the first African country to incorporate environmental protection into its constitution. Hence its bountiful wildlife.

3. It’s the only African country with a female leader

Namibia elected its first female leader in 2015. Saara Kuugongelwa is the country’s fourth prime minister and the only female leader on the continent. Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, the first elected female head of state in Africa, was the President of Liberia until January 2018, when she was replaced by former footballer George Weah.

4. More cheetahs live there than anywhere else

If you’re hoping to catch a glimpse of the fastest land animal on the planet, Namibia is the place to go – for it is home to the world’s largest population of free-roaming cheetahs. Etosha National Park is probably the best place to see them, though eagle-eyed visitors might spot them throughout the country.

5. It has Hollywood connections

Namibia’s dramatic landscapes, which range from desolate deserts to shimmering salt pans, have been used as the backdrop for numerous big budget blockbusters including 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) and Flight of the Phoenix (2006).

6. It was formerly known as South West Africa

The country became Namibia in 1990 when it was granted independence from South Africa, which had taken over the territory during the First World War. Prior to that Germany was in control, and they committed what is considered the “first genocide of the 20th century”, killing tens of thousands of Herero and Nama tribespeople during their brutal occupation. The German government formerly apologised for the genocide in 2004.

The worlds newest countries – how many have you visited?

7. The German’s inspired subversive tribal dress

In what is considered a mass act of subversion, some Herero men and women continue to dress like the German colonialists who tried to eradicate them. Tribesmen and women still cling to the 19th century apparel of their suppressors in a bid to protest and raise awareness about their bloody history.

8. There’s an intriguing story behind the country’s shape

Ever wondered why Namibia has that weird panhandle? Well, when the United Kingdom and Germany were carving up southern Africa they struck a deal: the former would give the latter what’s now known as the Caprivi Strip, in exchange for land elsewhere. The Germans accepted, believing the panhandle would give them access to the Zambezi River and a route to Africa’s east coast. There was just one problem: the world’s largest waterfall, Victoria Falls, lay in the way. The Germans, it transpired, had signed a bum deal.

9. It’s home to the world’s oldest desert

We’re talking about the Namib Desert, which, at 80 million years old, is the most ancient desert on the planet.

10. It has the highest sand dunes

Namibia lays claim to the highest sand dune in the world. Rising dramatically from the Namib Desert, the impressive mound – known, rather boringly, as Dune 7 – tops out at around 383m. As a point of reference consider this: The Shard in London is 310m tall.

From meat eating to Miss World: what each country is number one for

11. And the largest underwater lake

Dubbed Dragon’s Breath Cave – on account of the humid air that rises from its entrance – this gargantuan grotto is home to the largest non-subglacial lake in the world. Discovered in 1986, the cave can, alas, only be explored by professionals because of its treacherous typography.

12. There’s an eerie ghost town

Once a well-heeled mining town, Kolmanskop was abandoned in the Thirties when the diamond rush took prospectors elsewhere. The Namib Desert slowly started to reclaim the middle-of-nowhere outpost, which is now a popular tourist attraction.

13. And a spooky Skeleton Coast

Few places provide such a stark reminder of the power of nature than Namibia’s Skeleton Coast; a brutal place where the roaring swell of the Atlantic Ocean crashes into the vast nothingness of the Namib Desert. The bushmen hunter-gatherers who once roamed light-footed over these bone-dry gravel plains and shifting sands called it “the land God made in anger”.

The coast here is littered with rusting shipwrecks, which were surrendered to the desert by the broiling swell of the sea. But pockets of it are being tamed – a luxury  hotel shaped like a shipwreck is coming to the area soon.

14. The capital has some interesting street names

The highways of Windhoek pay homage to both communist dictators and controversial African presidents with the likes of Fidel Castro Street and Robert Mugabe Avenue.

15. It looks incredible from space

The Namib is littered with impact craters, such as Roter Kamm – shown here – created by a meteorite the size of an SUV that struck between four and five million years ago. They look pretty awesome from space.

So too do the desert’s vast dunes.

16. There’s an epic train journey

The Desert Express covers 220 miles from Windhoek through Namibia’s central highlands, across savannah, desert and gravel plains to Swakopmund on the Atlantic coast. A longer safari option includes Walvis Bay and game drives in the Etosha National Park. Book through Expert Africa.

17. Pedestrians can be breathalysed

Pedestrians in Namibia were once warned not to “drink and walk” after it was revealed police will breathalyse anyone involved in a collision with a vehicle. The Windhoek City Police announced it would start treating pedestrians in the same way as they would drivers in a bid to crack down on alcohol-related accidents.

18. It’s one of the thirstiest nations in Africa

Namibia is one of the thirstiest nations in Africa, according to the World Health Organisation. By its reckoning only Gabon and South Africa record higher rates of alcohol consumption – although it must be said Namibians tuck away much less booze per capita than most European nations.

19. Donald Trump can’t pronounce it

Last September, the US president incorrectly referred to the country as ‘Nambia’ not once, but twice, at a meeting in New York which consisted of leaders from Ghana, Namibia and Uganda. He was promptly torn apart on social media as a result of the blunder. Oh, Donald.

Venice Behind the Mask

Carnival through the eyes of the artisans.

A black gondola glides up the Grand Canal and docks in front of a 15th century Gothic palace blazing with candles. A masked nobleman in a tricorn hat steps out and offers his hand to his alluring companion, also masked, draped in gold finery. The couple strides through space and time into a sumptuous world that once existed, and, if you dive into the right wormhole, still exists today.

Welcome to the Ballo del Doge inside Palazzo Pisani Moretta, the prime party during Carnival. Inspired by the annual ball of centuries past when the Doge of Venice threw a society bash for the aristocracy, it was brought roaring back to life in 1994 by fashion designer Antonia Sautter, and has been described by Vanity Fair as “one of the most exclusive parties in the world.”

In a city famous for its masks, it may be surprising to learn that the Venice Carnival was only revived about 40 years ago. When Napoleon conquered Venice in 1797, he banished Carnival to the pages of history books. However, in 1980, the festival made a spectacular comeback, an event wistfully recalled by those old enough to remember.

luxos venice mask

Veteran mask-maker Sergio Boldrin, owner of La Bottega dei Mascareri, was a kingpin in the revival. “It was pure energy. Everyone was dancing and playing a role. One night I ran into a group of 50 people dressed as Pulcinella. All of Venice was part of Carnival.”

During the political terrorism of the Years of Lead, the wearing of masks was discouraged. Then in 1979, Venice mayor Mario Rigo determined to formally revive the bacchanal celebrations. Rigo persuaded director Maurizio Scaparro to move La Biennale Theatre Festival from October to February of the following year so it would coincide with Carnival. By then, Aldo Rossi’s famed Theatre of the World had been anchored in the lagoon off Punta della Dogana, modeled after the festive floating theatres of 18th century Venice, “a place where architecture ended and the world of the imagination began.” The stage was set to combat the outside discordance with a joyful world snuggled inside the lagoon.

These elements inspired young Venetians to join the fun, creating masks and costumes that reflected their core identities. It was a cry of freedom that still resonates today in fully orchestrated productions that fling ancient rituals into the present, and draw hundreds of thousands revellers to Venice each year.

Marisa Convento, one of the few artisans to continue the Impiraressa glass bead craft, created an embroidered bodice for the winner of the Festa delle Marie, the world’s oldest beauty pageant, which originated in 943 A.D. with an emphasis on virtue. “Venice must be a living city. We are building the future based on the highest qualities of the past. Carnival is an international showcase for local Venetian luxuries.”

luxos venice purse

The essence of Carnival permeates authentic Venetian products all year long, from fabrics and jewellery to shoes and perfume. Milliner Giuliana Longo has lived in the city all her life, plying the same trade as her mother and grandmother. “Venice is a city of magic. There is alchemy here. The spirit, the light of Carnival has always been present.”

Antonia Sautter says that expressing her heritage through fashion is a gift. “I achieved my dream of opening a tailor’s shop in 1994, the same year the Ballo del Doge was born. It is my mission to keep Venice’s artisanal tradition alive, not just during Carnival but also with weddings, luxury events and my handmade fashion collection. Carnival is an opportunity to break free from how others see us.”

Venice provides the stage to give flight to your fancies, the chance to escape behind a mask and become your secret self. The venerable artist Ludovico De Luigi quipped, “Carnival is a dry cleaner. It gives you back your ego, fresh and new.”
