African Safaris Venturing into the wilds of Africa may no longer mean dusty hammocks and mosquito netting, but the popularity of modern-day safaris is more than the promise of eco-chic tents. “People want to have a real conversation about poaching, the politics of hunting and the effects of global warming,” says Deeper Africa owner Karen Zulauf, whose company specializes in meaningful travel to Africa. Northern Tanzania’s 12,000-square-mile Serengeti ecosystem arguably is the best place to witness Africa’s “Big Five” game — lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino — and the private Singita Grumeti Reserve (singita.com) has some of the country’s most magnificent lodges. Its properties have played host to Natalie Portman, Will Smith and the Bush family. Sasakwa Lodge (from $1,350 a night) is an Edwardian-style mansion brimming with colonial-era furnishings like ostrich-feather lamps and faux snakeskin wainscoting, while the private hillside Serengeti House (from $6,800 a night) hosts up to eight guests with an infinity pool and staff villas. The Four Seasons (fourseasons.com) opened a modern lodge on the edge of the Serengeti in 2013, offering guests a privileged perch overlooking an elephant watering hole and a discovery center for families.Read more What It Looks Like When Baz Luhrmann… Read full this story
