  1. I’ve always wondered why Fairmont is so heavy in Afirca, yet barely has anything in Europe! Anyone have any thoughts / insights on this?

  2. No idea, Kendal. I must confess that I’d never heard of Fairmont until I started reading this blog and the comments.

  3. Have never heard of the Dolphin Coast or Zimbali Coastal Resort before but boy does it sounds great – you always tend to think of Cape Town, the wine routes and safaris for south africa – so this sounds like a great place
