Lodging: Ecological

Do you know of an exotic hotel or other lodging that should be included here? Send me the details.

Addo Elephant National Park.  Port Elizabeth, South Africa.

"Situated in a malaria free area just one hour's drive from the South African coastal city of Port Elizabeth, our magnificently diverse national park offers a wide variety of game viewing, outdoor adventure, accommodation and cultural experiences. You will be amazed at the variety of natural landscapes and wildlife species that can be experienced in one easily accessible destination.

Whether you are looking for luxury, comfortable family accommodation, or rustic settings, you are sure to find what your heart desires in the main rest camp, in the rugged Zuurberg section of the park, or in one of the concession sites."

Daintree Ecolodge and Spa.  Australia.

"This multi award winning tropical rainforest resort is renowned globally as a "unique" holiday haven set in an ecological miracle providing quality accommodation, exquisite natural beauty, gourmet delights and an exciting array of adventures. Now featuring the unique Daintree Spa where Aboriginal massage techniques, using powerful Australian/Aboriginal products combine in purely evocative mind, body and soul experiences.

The Daintree Eco Lodge & Spa offers unique tree house style accommodation in the heart of Tropical North Queensland's World Heritage precinct, just 50 kilometres north of Port Douglas on Australia's Great Barrier Reef."

Parrot Nest Lodge,  Belize, Central America. 

"Parrot Nest is a truly unique tropical experience. Spending the night under a 100’ guanacaste tree in a thatched tree house is like nothing else! The lodge is surrounded on three sides by the Mopan River, so a refreshing swim in clear water is never far away and the wildlife of the area abound. Yes, parrots are in great number here, along with hundreds of other types of birds, making this an ideal location for bird watching. Coati, agouti, otter, and the giant iguana are among the many animals which are regular visitors to our beautiful gardens which, though lush and exotic, are virtually mosquito free, a real bonus for those who love the great outdoors - and a good night’s sleep.

Bullet Tree Falls is the last outpost before the great forests to the west, south and north. Though Spanish-speaking, everyone also speaks English. Located just outside the village, Parrot Nest consists of two tree houses, four cabins, and two bathhouses. Children are welcome. Breakfast and dinner are served on the verandah of the main house. Dinners are generous, healthy and fresh, meals for vegetarians are provided on request. Clean drinking water is always available."

Pollywogg Holler Eco-resort.  Belmont, New York. 

Named for the serenade of frogs that fills the evening air, Pollywogg Hollėr is a Great Camp-style eco-resort established by the Castle family in 1987. The genius of nature and man are showcased in a setting of spectacular beauty, Adirondack-style craftsmanship, solar electricity, organic gardening, and gravity fed spring water.

Stroll undisturbed through enchanting sculpture gardens. Enjoy an informative tasting session in the wine cellar and delicious meals prepared using timeless non-electric cooking methods. Cleanse your body and mind in the wood fired sauna to the soft glow of lantern light. Emerge into the peace of night in the forest and sink into a deep, comfortable sleep.

The morning sky will greet you through skylights overhead and ample room for two is provided in the luxury of a heated spring water shower. A hearty breakfast prepares you for another day of weird wonders."

The Sawai Madhopur Lodge

"The Ranthambore National Park is home to the Royal Bengal Tiger, apart from being one of the most picturesque game reserves in the world. The Ranthambore National Park is covered under Project Tiger, which is one of Asia's most important conservation efforts. The presence of the ruins of the Ranthambore Fort and one of the world's largest banyan trees in the park adds to its charm and uniqueness. This former hunting lodge of the rulers of Jaipur is a 20 minute drive from the Ranthambore National Park. The lodge has 29 rooms including 2 suites and 6 tents (October to March) set amidst acres of lush green lawns.  Comment:  Having stayed at the Sawai Madhopur Lodge, I can tell you that their description understates the aura of the place.  Having afternoon tea on the veranda after a morning of hunting tigers (to photograph) from an open air jeep deep in the park is an experience like no other.  The treatment we received made us feel like English royalty visiting the colonies.

Sentry Mountain Lodge.  Selkirk Mountains of British Columbia, Canada. 

"Accessible only by helicopter, this new and remote backcountry lodge is perched at an elevation of 6,920 feet, deep in the Selkirk Mountains of British Columbia. Equally famous for both its champagne powder and abundant alpine wildflowers, this mountain range is ideal for backcountry skiing, ski touring, snowboarding, snowshoeing & hiking.

Considered one of America’s 10 Best Adventure Lodges, Sentry is more akin to a European Bed & Breakfast, than a rustic alpine hut.

The cozy and comfortable home-like lodge has only 4 guest rooms making every visit an exclusive and intimate backcountry experience for you and your friends. The exceptional service and exquisite cuisine will pamper you, while the relaxing alpine ambiance will make you feel right at home.

Regardless of the activity you have planned, we want you to be genuinely satisfied with the time you spend at Sentry Mountain Lodge."  Comment:  Go to the Web site and watch the animated introduction.  This is the kind of place that most people fantasize about when they think of going to the mountains.  Awesomely beautiful!
