One such travel trend we can enjoy at home or away is an African safari. Sure, from the comfort of your couch you won’t feel the sun on your back or smell the dry landscape in the still air, but you will see incredible animals up close and feel the rush of free, wild nature.
Peek in on several South African game reserves with 24-hour livestreamed footage showcasing wildlife hot spots. Let the incredible visuals inspire your future travel, while appeasing your nature-loving wanderlust from home.

This summer, family travel at The Peninsula receives an upgrade with the debut of Camp Peninsula, a children’s experience that recreates the spirit of camping right in the heart of Beverly Hills. The journey begins with a special welcome from Peter Bear, the hotel’s lovable mascot, at check-in. After taking a picture with the life-sized teddy bear, kids will be whisked away by a Peninsula Camp Counselor to a luxurious guestroom where a charming teepee awaits. An afternoon of camp-themed games and activities, including a hotel-wide scavenger hunt, rounds off the family-friendly experience, fun for children of all ages. Whether it’s a luxe staycation or an extended holiday, Camp Peninsula is an ideal way to ensure the little ones are happy campers.
