If you want to combine nature with luxury living, you need to look to tented camps which typically come equipped with air conditioning, private terraces with their own telescopes for wildlife spotting and 24-hour butler service. Safari bliss. In this issue, we shine a spotlight on the top luxury tent experiences that offer adventure without sacrificing comfort. Your great outdoor adventure starts here!

Dubai is globally recognised for its world firsts, and The Palm Jumeirah is an impressive example. Viewed from above, the manmade island resembles a stylised palm tree, which was built from reclaimed land mass and a series of artificial archipelagos. Sailing around Palm Jumeirah in a yacht or speedboat is also a popular option, with many private touring companies to choose from. Thrill-seekers can even skydive above the island for a truly unique experience. For a laidback evening, check out Club Vista Mare – a series of seven restaurants built on a pier that stretches out over the water. It is also packed with fantastic dining options worth visiting, such as Nobu and 101 Dining Lounge even if you’re not staying at one of the many resorts. Read our latest issue NOW!
