Eagle-eyed: The Sanctuary at Ol Lentille

What a place to sit and wait for sundown. The romantic Eyrie lodge, so-called because it is perched so high up giving you an eagle’s eye perspective, boasts some of the best views over the hills and plains of the Ol Lentille wildlife reserve. With 24,000 acres of land, there is plenty for you to see and explore, all expertly navigated by your safari guide, then you can return to your nest where once again you can feel like you’re on top of the world.

Wild thing: Volcanoes Safaris tour

When you need a break from your own daily routine, how about immersing yourself in the routines of majestic animals on an African safari instead? Yes, we thought you’d be up for that. On board an action-packed Volcanoes Safaris tour, you’ll do everything from game drives in Uganda’s Queen Elizabeth National Park to chimpanzee trekking in Kyambura Gorge. It is at the latter location in which you’ll be lodging too. The open plan bandas all have verandas so you can take in the stunning views of the park and mountains in the distance. (A four-day Kyambura Flying Safari starts from approx. £1,906 per person based on two sharing, inclusive of internal flights, accommodation and safari activities. volcanoessafaris.com)
