Most safari lodges channel traditional African styles. This one is unashamedly industrial, made of concrete and steel, with clean-lined furnishings. Retractable screen walls blur the boundary between indoors and out: Design steps aside, leaving nothing to interrupt the wild panorama.

The Outpost, Kruger National Park, South Africa. 27/(0) 11-245-5704. From $495 per person, including game drives, airstrip transfers, and all meals. Photo courtesy of The Outpost. This story appeared in the May/June 2011 issue.
