Birds of Paradise: Shompole, Kenya

Backdrop: A private conservancy near Tanzania with sweeping views of the Great Rift Valley’s volcanic hills.

Roughing It: Anthony Russell, Africa’s answer to Ian Schrager, designed the main six-bedroom Shompole Lodge and the two two-bedroom private houses that sit on a ridge above the main lodge. The Little Shompole house has its own staff, guide and butler, but the 360 house takes it up a notch with its own helipad.

Wild Things: The property’s close proximity to Lake Natron, which is one of the few remaining flamingo-breeding habitats in Africa, gives guests access to a rare wildlife treasure. Rooms from $620; thesafariandconservationcompany.com.
