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.
Sala's Camp, Kenya
Kenya contains many of the world's great safari camps and Sala's, deep in Maasai Mara National Park, is among the best. Visitors staying in the seven luxury tents (each complete with running hot/cold water and flush toilets) get intimate with nature. It's the ideal spot to take in the annual Great Migration or watch the winter rains. Even if you're out of season though there's still lion, elephant, rhino, and leopards within a 4x4's drive or often even in the neighborhood, making cocktail hour an epic experience.
