Getting away from it all doesn't have to mean foregoing the perks of civilization. An increasing number of luxury camp sites, which combine the joy of not working remotely with the comfort of, well, comfort, allow travelers to have their cake and eat it on a porch with a view. Want to enjoy nature and hot water? Not a problem. The world's best camps have electricity, feather beds, butler service, wine cellars, and a lot of acreage. Here's a look at some of the finest luxury camping experiences available across the globe.
Gorah Elephant Camp, South Africa
As you'd expect from the name, Gorah is all about elephants. The campsite is actually inside Addo Elephant Park, which is the most densely populated pachyderm playground on Earth. But that doesn't mean the place is just for the tusked. The full slate of African game is around too – lions, hyena, rhino – thanks to the watering hole that's in full view from the main lodge. Visitors sleep in lavishly appointed tents, complete with electrical power (via solar and generator), generous beds, and linens and suite-style sitting area, along with private bathrooms.
