The Serengeti is more vivid and beautiful than what you’ve seen in the Lion King, and if you’re lucky enough, you might even catch some elephants or rhinos silhouetted against the sunset. Visit a hotel near Lake Victoria for the true Serengeti experience.

Hanalei Bay is located on the Kaua’i island in Hawaii and consists of two miles of beach surrounded by mountains.

Stay steps away from the beach to ensure the best views at twilight.
