The point of traveling all the way to Namibia is to explore the wild Skeleton Coast or Damaraland. But do yourself a favor and pad the journey with a few extra days in the capital of Windhoek to recover in this seven-suite boutique hotel, cantilevered into an olive studded hillside. Request the Caprivi suite, which has wall-length glass doors that open onto a private plunge pool. From $277.
