The Lion Sleeps Tonight

Africa.  That enchanting and romantic continent across the pond teeming with wildlife and mystery.  This weekend, we're on a mission to discover what truly defines a glamourous rustic retreat.  Is it the structure, the contents, the surrounding or a combination of all three?  So, for the sake of research, we're off on a legendary African safari that even the greatest adventure men of the 20th century, Ernest Hemingway and Teddy Roosevelt, would be jealous of. Please keep your arms and legs inside this's going to be a bumpy ride.

  1. OH! Be still my heart... Calvin Cottar's camp- just to think of it practically brings tears to my eyes.
    One of the most divine places I've ever stayed. Our family had so much fun there and Calvin is The BEST!
    I would love to go back there some day.
