Ol Jogi, Laikipia - Kenya
Ol Jogi’s splendour is enough to take your breath away and certainly ticks every box for extravagance – from opulent décor and intricate details to wide-open wilderness and abundant wildlife. Owned for decades by a famous art-collecting family, Ol Jogi’s main house and spacious cottages are set around a prominent kopje overlooking the vast Laikipia Plateau with views of Mount Kenya and beyond. Its charm is only surpassed by the huge private conservancy in which it lies, that sees endangered black rhinos, Grevy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe, elephant, lion, cheetah, wild dog and leopard among its frequent visitors.
This exclusive-use property comes complete with spa, gym, cinema room, heated pool & tennis court. Aside from game drives, expect truly bespoke activities such as exploring the Rift Valley’s great lakes by helicopter, horseriding and stargazing with an astronomer.
"An exclusive hire like no other for up to 20 people, Ol Jogi is a collection of stone cottages and an opulent main house that allow your group total immersion into the surrounding landscape - wildlife wanders in, Mount Kenya makes up the horizon and you can lift off in the heli to experience it all."
Conservation is at the very core of this conservancy that occupies over 55,000 acres. Whilst you’re here, be sure to get involved at the veterinary clinic and wildlife rehabilitation centre – a rare and very special opportunity.
Canada's Outdoor Playground
Nimmo Bay, British Columbia - Canada
Going without travel has made many of us reassess what’s top of our list, with epic journeys something we’re craving to do. Canada for example is one such trip with its extraordinarily diverse scenery from rivers where bears reside, to soaring peaks, glacial-fed lakes and whale migration routes. One of our favourite Canadian hotels is family-run resort Nimmo Bay, located in the Great Bear Rainforest. This is the place for wild experiences accompanied by a high level of service. Cabins set along the river’s edge and in the forest allow you to connect with nature from the comfort of contemporary-style accommodation. The real fun starts in the great outdoors. Try heli-fishing in remote, pristine streams, paddle boarding along the river to spot bears or soaking in the cedar-hot tub by a tinkling waterfall.
"The trip you've been waiting for, full of the thrills of Canada’s great outdoors including whales, dolphins and bears - perfect for wilderness lovers."
Why not add Nimmo Bay into a three-week road trip of west Canada to really delve deeper? Explore Canada through its islands, rivers and mountains.
Jewel in the Jungle
Colonial Mansions at Haritha Villas & Spa - Sri Lanka
Clasped in overflowing greenery with a surround sound of squawking jungle life, the Colonial Mansions at Haritha Villas and Spa are a vision of modernity. Grass-topped roofs peek out from behind palm fronds and on closer inspection you’ll find the airy bedrooms and vast outdoor bathrooms to be stylish, sleek and contemporary with use of teak, stone, marble and polished concrete. A topaz-blue pool wraps around the villas, rimmed by padded loungers.
Set back from Sri Lanka’s southwest coastline amid wild, untamed nature, the Colonial Mansions are a gorgeous place to hide away. Whether you’re a family or a couple occupying the one- or two-bedroom mansions, you’ll have everything you need – when you want it. Your day is created around you, whether that’s a late breakfast on your veranda with verdant views, a Sri Lankan feast of rice and curry at the communal lounge and pool or a treatment at the Jungle Spa with the on-site Ayurvedic doctor, who will also tailor your meals to a specific diet if required. Tempting though it is to stay put, let Haritha Villas show you Sri Lanka including a day trip to moonstone mines located deep in the forest or whale watching in Mirissa.
"We think Haritha Villas and Spa marks a new chapter of Sri Lankan hospitality with contemporary styling and flexible service in glorious get-away-from-it-all scenery."
Fans of diving and snorkelling should arrange a trip to nearby Hikkaduwa for a boat excursion to the marine park. The flourishing corals are some of Sri Lanka’s finest and there are some interesting wreck dives to explore including old oil tanker SS Conch.
