Digital Journal's report of the 2016 event can be found here.

To try a whisky valued so highly was a rare opportunity.

Africa's Best Kept Secret: An Ultra-Luxury, Ultra-Eco Safari Lodge



Find out what a $3,500 whisky tastes like

It’s National Geographic’s Big Cat Week, time to turn our aention to the plight of the beleaguered felines of the world, the lions, leopards, cheetahs and tigers facing pressure from poachers, environmental destruction, crazed Chinese medicine practitioners and Minnesota dentists. If you want to see many of these majestic animals at their best, in high style, while doing good, there are few beer places to consider than Zarafa. This ultra-luxury, ultra eco conscious lodge may be Africa’s best kept travel secret. Interest in wildlife safaris has boomed in recent years, and with it there has been an expansion of high-end options, with more and beer luxury safari lodges. At the same time, the geography of safaris has grown, and while South Africa has long dominated the luxury segment of the market, Botswana has quietly been nipping at its heels. On my most recent trip to Southern Africa, just two months ago, many in the industry conceded that Botswana has wrested top honors, not just for its swank lodges but also for its top down dedication to both excellence and environmental responsibility. Again and again, hoteliers told me that standards for everything from food safety to impact on the ecosystem were higher and more carefully monitored by Botswana’s government than any in Africa.

AUTOMATIC, CHRONOGRAPH & FLYBACK MOVEMENT It is not surprising that automakers and the designers of luxury timepieces like to collaborate with each other. Both professions deal with precision, high-performance machines, and both are constantly striving for new innovations in both technical achievement and style.

| 24 |

When automakers and watch designers work together, the results are usually spectacular and interesting. The watches produced by such collaborations are always masterful in their technical details and appealing in their appearance.

LUXURY WATCHES This Bugai line from Parmigiani Fleurier Watches has a striking look and a unique movement. These are the first watches in the world to have a transverse movement that works like the transmission of a car. Understandably proud of their creation, Bugai and Omega Watches have provided several see-through panels showing off every aspect of the movement.

These watches don't look like others. In the original Bugai design, shown in several of these selections, the body is an oval cylinder, most of which is filled by the see-through panels. The circular dial is at the side of the cylinder. Also shown are several of the Bugai Flyback Chronographs, the design for which is based on the Bugai Atalante 57S Sport from the 1930s. These have wide, porthole-style dials with see-through faces showing the handsome movement. Each of these luxury timepieces has a large chronograph dial in the space between the center and 3, while a small second hand appears beside 9. Notice that some of these Parmigiani Fleurier watches are set with white baguee diamonds. Here are watches that are perfect for the lovers of all kinds of high-performance machinery. This line from Bugai and Parmigiani Fleurier Watches is a technical and stylistic triumph. www.parmigiani.ch

Yet again, everything comes back into play. It’s about a new benchmark. A sports car that has only ever existed once in this form. That has been a source of fascination for generations. And is firmly anchored in our heart and soul. It’s about the future of the 911. We are always looking forward. Not sideways, never back. We don’t want to rest on the laurels of our past, no maer how illustrious it may be. All the racing victories. The dreams. Our fans. Thousands of ideas. We hold them in our hearts. But we start from scratch. And we will give everything we’ve got. We will go on the aack, to get even beer. And we will fight, to defend our

| 40 |

lead. With one single goal: to create the next 911, one that can do more, deliver more and consume less than ever before. A sports car as beautiful now as it was on day one. That is our tradition. And our future. We will give it our all. For the best 911 of all times: the new 911. At Porsche, there are no conventions. Forbidding free thought? That’s forbidden. The only thing that maers is this question: how can we become even beer? Let’s put it another way: can we redefine the limits of engineering? Can we reconcile apparent contradictions? Yes, we can. With Intelligent Performance.

EVER AHEAD The new 911 answers questions about the future of the sports car with a quantum leap in performance. By reducing fuel consumption, but not by suppressing emotions. By following a principle that has already changed everything once before: in 1974, with the ďŹ rst 911 Turbo. Developed completely from scratch, the sixcylinder twin-turbo engines of the 911 Carrera and Targa 4 models with a displacement of 3.0 litres embrace this principle and perfect it in a forwardlooking way.

The stand-out qualities of the new twinturbo engines are their extraordinarily direct responsiveness and wide torque plateau, reached early in the low end of the rpm band. Combined with the high rev limit – and the legendary sound of a 911 six-cylinder horizontally opposed engine. In short: excellent performance that feeds back to the driver in an instant. www.porsche.com/usa/models/911/911-targa4s/

Some 30km from the main island of Mahé, Ile du Nord, or North Island, enjoys private isolation within the Inner Island group of the Seychelles. Luminous white beaches cosset a tropical interior of coconut palms and takamaka trees cradled between three granite outcrops, 110m to 180m in height, whose polished grey ramparts rise from the white sands and filigree reefs of the azure ocean.

North Island is a place that unashamedly aims at providing the very best in privacy, location, accommodation, services, facilities and experience, yet has restored its environment to a place of verdant plenty – a Noah’s Ark afloat in warm tropical waters in colours of blue and aquamarine. The true essence of North Island is a rare encounter that is in harmony with the environment – one that touches and inspires the lives of all who walk her beaches, dive her waters and contemplate her beauty.

North Island is a sanctuary where natural habitats, long neglected, have been rehabilitated so that endangered Seychelles fauna and flora could be reintroduced and given a place to grow and thrive.
