THE TOP 100 HONEYMOON DESTINATIONS
No sooner do you enter
the 20,000-acre game reserve and rhino sanctuary than you are
confronted with dazzling birds, while out on the plains, rhino
graze alongside giraffe, zebra, waterbuck and impala.
The lodge is equally
magical, decked out in burnt orange and emerald green hues, and so
intimate - with only six suites - that you feel like house guests.
After lunch, much of it from the lodge's kitchen garden, retire to
your vast suite for a massage. After that, it's dawas cocktails
(vodka, lime and honey) in front of the fire.
BEST ADVENTURE ESCAPES
WOW FACTOR: The Zebra
Room, with its rooftop deck for private sundowners, dinners, yoga
sessions and massages. And a night drive - the sudden sight of
an eagle owl, lit up in the spotter's beam, is beyond exciting.
