It’s time to visit South Africa.

Last year, I completed the trip of a lifetime by traveling to the motherland. I was fortunate to stay at the luxury apartments in Cape Town called MORE Quarters.

This place was perfect – spacious, modern, and the best location. The staff goes above and beyond to make your holiday the best experience. You’ll have the comfort and privacy of home, but the service of a five star hotel. MORE Quarters is walking distance from several restaurants and the popular Long Street.

If I could compare Cape Town to a U.S. experience, it would be New Orleans meets Miami. South Africa is a country you will want to visit over and over again. If you’d like to find about additional information about my MORE Quarters experience, click here.

In operation since 2001, MORE is a family business, which owns and operates a boutique collection of luxury private hotels and lodges around South Africa.

Over the last 15 years, it has established itself within the global travel industry, and its properties have been endorsed by a veritable collection of internationally acclaimed awards.

I’m happy to announce that the More Family has revealed a new safari lodge.


I present to you: Lion Sands Ivory Lodge.

A couple words from the founder:

“Lion Sands has been our home for four generations and is therefore deeply ingrained in our DNA. With this in mind, we began our journey of redesigning the Ivory Lodge experience. We took our cue from the passion and appreciation we have for the environment, and how we have been fortunate enough to savor it in the comfort of our own private lodge, 1933. In the new Ivory Lodge, we want our guests to feel that this is their own private safari home.” [Robert More]

Feeling overwhelmed with planning your travels? Sit back and relax to enjoy the benefits of MORE Private Travel. MORE travel experts can arrange your trip from start to finish.
