1. Destination: Kruger, South Africa

It doesn’t take much searching to find the romance and beauty in wild animals, majestic sunsets (and sunrises) and a mountainous backdrop, which makes South Africa the ideal retreat to seek both adventure and serenity. When planning your visit to Kruger National Park to behold wildlife and the general awe-inducing landscape, keep in mind that the dry winter season (from May to October) is widely considered the best time to spot animals and embark on walking safaris. For luxurious comfort at its finest during your stay, make your watering hole the Garonga Safari Camp located in the Makalali Conservancy, just outside of the national park. The resort features 12 luxury tents and various safari drives that are sure to suit whatever style of African adventure you’ve been dreaming of.
