Tahiti Diary – The InterContinental Resort and Spa

For a majority of visitors to French Polynesia, the adventure begins with a stopover in the capital city of Papeete on the island of Tahiti, where the luxury InterContinental Tahiti Resort and Spa is an ideal launching pad to a magical South Seas archipelago experience.

I am working my way westward, following an itinerary commonly known as Tanzania’s Southern Circuit; great swaths of stunning wilderness spread across the southern part of the country. The largest of its national parks are located here, teaming with game. Yet, due to the lack of tourism infrastructure, it is a place that most of the three quarter of a million yearly visitors to Tanzania never see.
