Though much of it is inhabited, Africa is still one of the few places where nature reigns supreme. It’s for that reason we suggest everyone go on an African safari at least once in their lives. And now that experience can be made all the better thanks to the Segera X Nay Palad Bird Nest Hotel.
Isolated out on the plains of Laikipia in the heart of Kenya, this unique structure appears like a great treehouse rising above the otherwise flat horizon. Guests can choose to either stay grounded in first-floor accommodations or sleep under the stars on the building’s roof. Those staying will also be treated to a sunset champagne feast, as well as a picnic-style breakfast on the roof the following morning – at which point you can enjoy the local wildlife (such as elephants and giraffes) gathering at the nearby river. You can enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime experience starting at $1,150 per night.
