Lamai Serengeti, Serengeti, Tanzania

16 of 17

A front-row seat to the great wildebeest migration? Coming right up, courtesy of Lamai Serengeti, one of a few hotels to open in this formerly off-limits stretch of the Tanzanian national park. T+L editors love the natural rock swimming pool and how the thatched open-air villas blend seamlessly into the rugged Kogakuria Kopje; travelers will love that the lodge’s privileged location means crowd-free sightings of the big five and the wildebeest migration crossing the Mara River between July and October.

From $4,300 per week, all-inclusive (with the exception of internal flights and park fees); nomad-tanzania.com.
