  4. There are a total of 12 “tents” at $995 per person/per night during high season.

 

Life, death, gore, wild African animals, the survival of the fittest – and cappuccino. You don’t even have to move off the sun lounger next to the infinity pool to see the circle of life playing itself out… – Carole Cadwalladr
