Elephants

Shipwreck Lodge, Skeleton Coast, Namibia
Why You Should Go: There’s plenty of the remote and unusual to go around in the African wilderness but nothing quite like this set-up, from where you can spy lions, elephants, baboons, and other creatures that call the Skeleton Coast home.

A set of ten stand-alone rooms built to resemble the real shipwrecks one would find along the coast.

Singita Kwitonda Lodge, Rwanda
Why You Should Go: Rwanda and the park have long been popular for gorilla tracking but have been rather short on places to stay. Singita joins the fray with an eight-suite and one villa property with easy access to the silverback gorillas and otherworldly views of the surrounding volcanoes.
