6 Jaw-Dropping Safari Lodges That'll Completely Rewrite Your Bucket List

Few adventures embody the romance of escapism quite like an African safari. AnneMarie Meintjes, deputy editor of VISI magazine and co-author of striking new book Safari Style Africa, says the word itself is "an irresistible invitation to pack up and go." The stunning coffee table book will make you want to do exactly that—pack a linen shirt and khaki pants in a vintage trunk, board a tiny bush plane, and explore some of the most remote pockets of Botswana, Namibia, and more.

"I'm often asked, 'What's your favorite lodge?'" says Dook, the photographer and creative force behind this new book. "As I have photographed so many high-end places for my work over the years, it's an obvious question. But there's no obvious answer."

Safari Style Africa aims to answer this question, spotlighting all of the incredible destinations and lodges the esteemed travel photographer has visited over the years. His goal? To inspire you to add a safari to your bucket list. "An African safari should be at the top of your bucket list because it's not just a holiday, it's an incredible, memorable experience—and now you can do it in a little more style." Take a peek at six stunning lodges from the book and update your bucket list accordingly.
