No one knows travel like the readers of Condé Nast Traveler. In the January issue, find out how 32,000 of said readers rated 710 of the very best hotels, resorts, and cruise lines on the planet.

Now in its fifteenth year, the Gold List covers everything from clifftop retreats on the Amalfi Coast to South Pacific resorts, contemporary urban hotels and more with reader ratings on rooms, service, food, location, and other criteria. 

Here's another sneak peek:

Mombo Camp, Moremi Game Reserve, Botswana
Overall score: 97.6
Raised tents with wood beams, canopied beds, outdoor showers, and private verandas are the accommodations at this Okavango Delta camp, the top-scoring property in Africa and the Middle East. "The views all around are truly of pristine nature," with vistas of floodplains and bush from rooms or from the plunge pools at Little Mombo. Game drives at both properties scour Chief's Island in all-terrain vehicles, and guests view wildebeests, lions, leopards, and a dense population of birds. Meals are served anywhere on the property, and the menu, customized to guests' preferences, consistently excels: "You don't expect food that good in the bush." $$$$; 12 tents; 27 11 807 1800;
