Angama Mara in Masai Mara, Kenya

46 of 49

Perched on the edge of an escarpment overlooking the Masai Mara, the 30-suite Angama Mara has one of the world’s most spectacular settings: it’s where Out of Africa was filmed some 30 years ago. The place was designed so guests feel they are floating in air; you could easily spend all day in your beautifully appointed room—a modern take on campaign chic. But owners Nicky and Steve Fitzgerald, who helped build andBeyond into a safari powerhouse, have hired expert guides to tempt you onto the Mara plain below, where you can get up close and personal with the region’s diverse wildlife. angama.​com; doubles from $2,800, all-inclusive.
