Our NEW Spring/Summer collection draws on the stunning continent of Africa as a muse, taking inspiration in the form of prints, colours and pleating that reflect the traditions of this multi-cultural hub. From Cape Town to Zimbabwe, the collection brings together embellishment, tribal fabrics and the hues of glorious landscapes to reflect the stunningly rich Motherland.
With Africa in mind, this week we’ll be giving you the #EmmaWallaceInsidersGuide to the land. Here are our top five destinations that need to hit your bucket list! The perfect locations to inspire an adventure for those who long to wander…
1. Toast To Table Mountain At Sunset
Cape Town’s iconic landmark provides the ultimate picturesque backdrop for a romantic sunset tipple. Book a cable car ride and take in the spectacular sights with a fully rotational cabin floor that gives you an incredible 360-degree view of the city. Pack a picnic and some bubbles to really make the most of the experience. Nothing beats saying cheers as you gaze upon the South African city in all its glory!
2. Feel The Beat At The Fez Festival Of World Sacred Music
Cited as arguably the most consistently high-quality world music festival in the world, this iconic festival in beautiful Morocco brings together some of the continent’s best musicians for a spectacular celebration. The perfect audio backdrop for you to explore the city, this festival unites ethnic and spiritual folk music styles. From bagpipe bands to Chinese opera, it’s a feast for the senses!
3. Snorkel At Pemba Island
Pemba forms part of the Zanzibar archipelago of islands that run north from Dar es Salaam. With far less tourism and a landscape of lush vegetation that has earned it the name ‘The Green Island’, there’s many reasons to pay this gem a visit! However, none are quite as enticing as the coral reefs and lagoons on offer. Considered to offer some of the best diving in the world, Pemba Island is a true haven for those seeking to go on an underwater adventure.
4. Haggle At The Harbour In Essaouira
Another Moroccan gem on the list! The ancient medina of Essaouira showcases miles of stunning beaches. One of the most beautiful towns to visit on the continent, it offers a more peaceful experience compared to tourist trap Marrakesh! Be sure to visit the harbour and fish market where you can barter with the locals for your supper.
5. Test Your Nerve At Victoria Falls
Truly one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world, this impressive site sits on the Zambezi River which defines the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. More than a kilometre long and hundreds of metres high, the dramatic noise of the falls can be heard from a distance of 40 kilometres! For thrill seekers there is fun to be had at this natural wonder. Bungee jumping, helicopter rides and white-water rafter will test even the boldest adrenaline junkies!
Our new collection is made for adventure, so what are you waiting for, get planning that trip!
