South Africa’s Balule Game Reserve—35,000 acres of former farmland traversed by the Olifants River. Here, there are excellent, service-oriented lodges, including Pondoro, with chalets designed by local architects, and Toko Yaka, whose six large suites come with hardwood floors, antique English canopied beds, and private decks.
