If staying in such a place feels like you’re making an exhibition of yourself, then Mwiba (; from $2,100 per night) in Tanzania is the very opposite – a brand-new, off-the-beaten-track safari campof impressive luxury proportions with no other lodge in close proximity. Set to take on the likes of the private reserve Singita Grumeti, this American-owned project overlooks a rocky gorge on the Arugusinyai River, and is made up of eight double suites – stilted, so they touch the earth lightly and have a low impact on the land – which are layered in shades of cream, tan, chocolate and charcoal. Canvas “outdoor-in” bathrooms have soaking tubs that look towards transporting views of more than 50,000 acres of privately leased wildlife country. There’s also a gym and pool, as well as in-room massage treatments. Booking can be made through Journeys by Design (
