The much anticipated Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue 2012, has this week finally been launched amongst much fanfare. The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue 2012 is the biggest selling edition in the US, and boasts Kate Upton as their new cover girl. However, our focus was on Irina Shayk and Alyssa Miller. WHY? Well they were fortunate enough to travel to two of Southern Africa Travel's favourite locations for their Sports Illustrated Swimsuit shoot, the stunning Desroches Island Resort, Seychelles and the beautiful and luxurious Royal Livingstone Hotel, Zambia.
The picture postcard Seychelles destination of Desroches Island Resort was where Alyssa Miller got to enjoy her photoshoot, what a gig! Desroches Island Resort is a high class destination which enjoys balmy weather all year round, surrounded by warm crystal blue waters and endless white sandy beaches. The luxury beach suites and villas are set right on the beach front and offer sumptuous comfort and facilities for their guests to enjoy.
