Concierge.com's insider take:
The Addo Elephant National Park—home to black rhinos, lions, Cape buffalo, antelope, and the world's densest elephant population—is also home to this luxury tented camp, part of a private game reserve. The 11 thatch-roofed, permanent tents are creamy, cavernous, and cool (though not air-conditioned), with open-plan bathrooms, polished wood floors, and colonial four-poster beds. An impeccably restored 1850s farmhouse with deep wraparound verandas has views over lawns and a sun-drenched watering hole where animals gather to drink. There's also a rock pool for swimming, and a boma—an outdoor firepit and eating area for dining under the stars.
