I love to travel, and nothing starts my getaway juices flowing like the annual Condé Nast review of hot new hotels. I love travel for a number of reasons. I find travel brings a couple together both when they experience great locations, and later when revisit a magnificent shared experience. When you look back at the end of any year, travel always stands out in the highlights.
This year my favorite was so breathtaking I almost passed out on the spot. It is one part Four Seasons chic and two parts Out of Africa. Some of favorite parts are the “No”s – no wifi, no health center, no bar, no pool, because instead you find yourself in one of four luxury tents looking out on a Zebra preserve in South Luangwa Valley, Zambia. Every tent is assigned a butler who makes G&Ts appear out of thin air and arrives each morning with clean pressed clothes. The twice daily walking tours include everything from hippos to zebras, elephants, and buffalo. The area is known for its birds (more than 400 species) and even the extremely rare Thornycroft giraffe.
Add travel to your life this year, including the Sanctuary Zebra Plains Walking Safari Camp. [see more]
