A luxury holiday experience should unfold from the moment you wake up. So, whether you want to witness the sun rise over Machu Picchu, start your day with yoga on a beautiful Bali beach, or see early rising gibbons grooming themselves in Cambodia: you should refuse to get out of bed for anything less.
1. Flying over the Victoria Falls in a hang-glider
Few things could be more exhilarating than flying over Zambia's Victoria Falls, at sunrise and in a hang-glider. Do just that at Tongabezi before an adrenaline pumping walking safari.
2. Breakfast with monkeys, Costa Rica
Wildlife wake-up calls in Costa Rica include bleery-eyed sloths peering at you from the trees, parrots congregating around your balcony, and monkeys ready to steal your breakfast the moment your back is turned. Check out Lapa Rios and Pacuare Lodge for a sneaky peak of your wildlife adventure.
3. Mayan sunrise
It’s well worth getting up early to see Tikal in Guatemala: one of the best preserved Mayan temples in Central America. Sit atop one of the jungle-draped pyramids, with howler monkeys breaking the silence as the sun rises over the vast acropolis.
4. Hot air balloon ride over the Masai Mara.
We can’t think of a more majestic way to wake up than with a hot air balloon ride over the iconic Masai Mara. Sip a champagne as migratory wildebeest thunder beneath you, and marvel at the sweeping expanses only seen in wildlife documentaries.
5. Call to Prayer, Morocco and Tunisia
You’ll feel a million miles from home as you wake up in these beautifully exotic worlds. Start the day with an invigorating salt-scrub or blast of hydrotherapy in a traditional hammam.
6. Macchu Picchu at Sunrise
The quality of light over Machu Picchu is absolutely beautiful at sunrise, and this is one of the best times of day to see it. Explore the vast Inca citadel without the crowds on our luxury Machu Picchu Inca Trail Trek.
