Edward VIII famously despatched half of East Africa’s wildlife on one of his hunting trips, and the safari remains a perfect opportunity to gaze over a majestic landscape with regal disdain. Of course, the attitudes have hardened somewhat to the idea of blunderbussing elephants and leopards for their ivory or skins, but you can still treat yourself to the camp luxury of the 1920s hunter. At Ol Jogi in Kenya, the linens are from Hermes and the price tag a cool quarter of a million for a week. At Richard Branson’s Mahali Mzuri in Kenya you can camp in opulence beneath an African sky. Just remember not to pose with photos of your endangered species once you’ve bagged it.
