Your 2018 dream island escape is waiting

Island life. Unhurried, sun-kissed and for the most part languid and decadent. And that's really how it should be. Days spent sunning yourself while reading a good book and sipping on the cocktail of your choice as you sway in a hammock.

Whether you're enjoying your annual family vacation as the kids are being entertained by your resorts' all-inclusive facilities, or you're honeymooning on a tropical cloud-nine - you're doing it with a splash of island style.

Far-flung yet affordable comes in the form or Indonesia's Bali or Thailand and of course for repeat visitors to the likes of SA favourite, Mauritius -  there's always the trend of living like a local.

If you want something that's anything but an Indian Ocean hotspot, then consider Rodrigues or Madagascar. The ideal #AfriTravel island splurge could see you combing some of the best of beach and bush easily in Mozambique or while jetting off to Tanzania's Zanzibar

This weekend we bring you the ideal selection of island holidays to help you plan your 2018 dream escape. 

Enjoy!
