Wolwedans Dunes Lodge, Namibia

How to get there: A two-hour flight from Johannesburg or Cape Town to Windhoek, followed by a six-hour drive or a 105-minute prop-plane ride.

The experience: The resort is set in the dune highlands of the NamibRand Nature Reserve, surrounded by majestic views of the clay-colored dessert. Accommodations are in chalets with canvas blinds, overlooking grand terraces that pour out onto miles of empty sand. Begin your day watching the sunrise from your bed, take a safari drive or a hot-air balloon ride, and end with a four-course dinner. Want to get even more remote?Head to the Private Camp, two miles away, where your suite is the only man-made creation on the landscape.
