Proximity to the riverine spectacle is what defines the new Singita Mara River Tented Camp (www.singita.com; from $950 per person, all inclusive) in Tanzania. Positioned on an oxbow in the Mara River, the site allows guests to experience the annual wildebeest migration that passes through on its great curl north from August to October. Here, with each contemporary canvas suite upon a river-facing platform, one can be just metres from the action while bathing in an open-air tub.
