Best Places to Travel in 2016 – Tanzania

A safari trip through Tanzania’s more remote parks used to mean staying in low-key camps. That’s about to change, as this year Asilia will open the first truly luxurious lodge in Ruaha National Park, a seldom-visited area teeming with wildlife like elephants, leopards, and lions. Set on a hill overlooking a savanna with baobab trees, it will offer guided walks and both day and night wildlife drives—all without another vehicle in sight. It is still possible to have privacy in the popular Serengeti plains and Ngorongoro Conservation Area at the new breed of high-end tented camps. Two upcoming options: Asilia’s Highlands, opening in March on the slopes of the Olmoti Volcano, will have seven glass-fronted geodesic tents, and in June, Nomad’s eco-friendly Entamanu Ngorongoro is set to open eight tents—with views both into the crater and out over the Serengeti. Not to be outdone, the classic camps are sprucing up: andBeyond Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp has repositioned its 10 tents to improve views and added alfresco showers and a two-bedroom family tent. And Singita Mara River Tented Camp, located in the Lamai Triangle, has upgraded its Wi-Fi and is boosting solar power for espresso machines and other indulgences.
