This ultra-remote, luxurious safari lodge on an island in Botswana’s Okavango Delta isn’t a hotel, it’s an experience, where everything — including the excellent food and the guided excursions (game drives, bush walks, river cruises) — is included in the price of the stay. The &Beyond chain specializes in “glamping,” nicknamed as such for it’s blend of glamorous accommodations within rustic, natural settings, and the Delta Camp lodge is one of its best offerings. Guests can get up close to exotic wildlife (think: lions and hippos) on both land and water, and even arriving to the property is an adventure, requiring transport by small plane, safari vehicle, and a boat. After a day’s excursion, the small group of guests returns to a tasty Pan-African meal before turning in to the nine safari tents, which are fully screened in and thoroughly high-end, with huge soaking tubs, four-poster beds, lots of wood, and private pools.
