Kisawa Sanctuary makes National Geographic’s coveted ‘Best of the World’ list for 2024

Profiled Among 21 ‘Best Wellness Experiences’ Around the World

30 January 2024

National Geographic today announced their picks for BEST OF THE WORLD 2024, the brand’s annual guide of the most exciting, meaningful, and one-of-a-kind travel experiences for 2024.

Kisawa was named to the Best Wellness Experienceslist, part of BEST OF THE WORLD’s new WORTH A TRIP category featuring the top establishments recommended by Nat Geo for the year ahead. BEST OF THE WORLD 2024 was created, researched, reported and written in collaboration with National Geographic’s international editorial teams, which serve millions of readers through their magazines and websites around the world. This year’s travel guide celebrates not only must-see destinations but expands the franchise to include a complete and authoritative suite of must-do, must-stay and must-consume recommendations for travelers to engage with these destinations more deeply and meaningfully.

For the first time ever, Nat Geo’s BEST OF THE WORLD recommendations also include a selection of top wellness retreats, hotels, cultural gems and best restaurants that National Geographic’s experts agree are “worth building a trip around,” as well as a list of the top 20 travel adventures for the year ahead.

At National Geographic, we know that travel has the power to move you. That the experiences you have can make you see the world — and yourself — in a new light. Our expanded BEST OF THE WORLD franchise is the ultimate guide to the exceptional experiences that we and our global community of experts are most excited about right now, whether that’s hiking to the El Valle de Antón volcano in Panama or listening to live music in Kyoto or bear-watching in Alaska,” said Nathan Lump, National Geographic’s editor-in-chief. “This year, we wanted to give travelers more ideas than ever before to jumpstart their travel planning for 2024 and beyond, so we grew our lists to include curated hotels, restaurants, wellness retreats like Kisawa Sanctuary and cultural spots that we believe are worth getting on a plane for, and gear that will make your travels smoother”

As long time fans of Nat Geo we are delighted to feature in the publication’s Best of the World 2024 guide, in the new category of Wellness.

The BEST OF THE WORLD 2024 travel guide is available online now, where readers will be transported to each destination through spectacular photography and report.
