While Kenya has become the go-to spot for those in search of a safari, it turns out that Mombo Camp in Botswana in southern Africa is arguably the best big game spot in the world. Guests stay in one of nine en suite, fully decked out (with indoor and outdoor showers), raised tents beneath shady trees on Chief Island, and meander around on raised walkways and balconies for a better view of the lions, giraffes, rhinos, and elephants, that meander in the nearby plains – or right through camp as they often do. In addition to a full gym, there are in-room massages and group dining that takes place under a thatched roof "boma" to the serenades of the Mombo choir. [From $1,783/night; wilderness-safaris.com]
