Safari Lodge Reimagined: Mahali Mzuri, Kenya

Strung along a ridgeline in the Masai Mara, the latest property from business magnate Richard Branson is a futuristic riff on the classic East African lodge. The 12 tents—which resemble spaceships—mix traditional details (canopied beds, claw-foot tubs, handmade Kenyan textiles) with playful elements (spiky, sea urchin–style lights, rubber duckies in Masai garb). Guests spot game from the cliff-edge infinity pool, while a central fire pit is a hub for swapping safari tales over sundowners. All-inclusive. $$$$$
