Jamala Madikwe, Royal Safari Lodge, Madikwe Game Reserve, South Africa
Just five gargantuan
bush villas at this right royal retreat fuse superlative luxury and intimate
privacy with extravagant facilities inside and out (including a polished wooden
deck, plunge pool and outdoor shower). Nestled under a grove of ancient Leadwood
trees with a waterhole that abounds with wildlife, the service here is attentive
and warm, and the dining truly decadent.
