The tran­quil Masse­ria Tra­panà in Puglia is a food lover’s par­adise, fea­tur­ing the re­gion’s sim­ple yet de­li­cious dishes, plus cook­ery demon­stra­tions and tast­ings. For a high-end sa­fari ex­pe­ri­ence, South Africa’s Sin­gita Le­bombo Lodge of­fers an ex­traor­di­nary close-up of wildlife at Kruger Na­tional Park.
