Check Out Some of My Favorite Luxury Wilderness Getaways

Imagine wide open plains, and the patter of horses galloping freely through the morning mist. A warm breeze cascading through autumn's rustling trees and over the brush. Gleams of sunlight peeking through the soft clouds and into the windows of your cozy cabin. This is Magee Homestead at Brush Creek Ranch. Undoubtedly, one of the most spectacular 5 star luxury guest ranches you could ever dream of.

The Cottars Safari Camp Bush Villa is like nothing you’ll ever find elsewhere. It is an oasis of luxury on 6,000 acres. All of which are a part of their privately-owned Kenyan conservancy. The property is located deep within the Maasai Mara, which has been dubbed the 8th Wonder of the World. Here, lush greenery and flowing rivers attract the richest diversity of mammals on earth. As you can imagine, close up views of exotic wild animals are a common affair in these parts.

Appropriately translated, Mahali Mzuri means a “beautiful place” in Swahili. This uniquely designed tented Kenyan property is just that, a beautiful place. Owned by Sir Richard Branson, it is part of the Virgin Limited Edition hotel collection. Mahali Mzuri is located in the private Olare Motorogi Conservancy. Guests can witness herds of wildlife directly from their bathtub, bedroom, and private deck.

On the banks of the Zambezi River, just upstream from Zambia's Victoria Falls, sits the magical Tongabezi Lodge. Voted the #1 Safari Lodge in Zambia by Conde Nast and Most Enchanting Lodge in Zambia by Lux Hospitality Awards, this trip is well worth the journey required to get there. See the video >>>
