What: The epitome of luxurious African safari travel provided by Sir Richard Branson on his private game reserve in South Africa, featuring two luxurious lodges, one built on a summit offering spectacular panoramic views, the other built on the banks of a riverbed giving guests a taste of life in the bush. Activities, which include game drives in 4x4 vehicles, nature walks, bird-watching and star-gazing, allow guests to experience an amazing range of wildlife.

Where: In the heart of the Sabi Sands Game Reserve, bordering Kruger National Park in South Africa's Mpumalanga province. Because it is privately owned, guests can explore the more than 10,000 acres of unspoiled bush filled with game and wildlife in near solitude, accompanied only by the park's experienced trackers and game rangers.

Why: The very exclusive private game reserve focuses on exceptional personal service for small, intimate groups. The luxurious facilities offer guests all the comforts of a five-star boutique hotel along with the authentic sights, sounds and smells of the African bush. The camp also boasts a beauty center, tennis courts, swimming pools as well as a fully equipped gym. You can cap off each adventure-filled day with an African dinner under the stars.
