SHINTA MANI WILD, CAMBODIA

Canadian Vogue
Designer Bill Bensley constructed Shinta Mani Wild on the border of Southern Cardamom National Park in west Cambodia to help protect the surrounding 860-acre forest. A National Geographic Unique Lodge of the World, the complex features 15 luxe tents, each sporting a theme—National Geographic is one—and an outdoor bathtub. Guests can arrive via zipline and fill their visits with picnicking, hiking, and helping rangers check wilderness cameras that deter poaching. The staff of 120 includes former poachers and loggers.
