Selecting the right hotel can be a challenge. You want a place that’s within your budget and near your desired attractions, but you also want accommodations that are unique to the region. Safety and cleanliness are sure to be a priority, but you also may want to avoid potential tourists traps that are devoid of character and charm. And now thanks to social media, hotels also have the task of being picture-perfect, serving as backdrops for Snaps, pictures and videos that take “wish you were here” to new levels.

Throughout Africa, there are countless hotels, resorts and lodges to accommodate every possible budget and preference, ranging from boutique hotels to lavish game reserves, and we’ve rounded up the top properties that represent #travelgoals in every way.

After all, vacations come and go, but the memories and Instagram pictures will last a lifetime.
