Privacy and space to explore are found here in abundance, as is the thrilling wildlife. Think thatched villas with shimmering Indian Ocean views on one of the private islands within Mozambique’s archipelago or sunrise safari drives across the African plains and Rwanda’s cloud-cloaked mountains tracking its most famous inhabitant, the Gorilla.
