Staying at the Best Western and seeing the sights when traveling. So generic, so meh. If you can make it to South Africa, now that’d be an adventure. Even better, sleeping in a treehouse with lions, hippos and giraffes. The Lion Sands Game Reserve in South Africa offers just these accommodations. They also have private lodges for the less adventurous.
Sure, they have amenities such as a spa, fine dining and swimming pools. Skip those and head to the treehouses. These let you sleep out in nature with minimal modern conveniences. That means no electricity and the chance to wake up to a giraffe staring at you. That’s gotta be better than sleeping in some cigarette-smelling room on a who-knows-what’s-been-done-on-this comforter.
