All in favor of adding an African safari to your birthday celebration bucket list, raise a hand! We couldn’t agree with you more, especially upon seeing this stunning resort in South Africa and learning about the amazing things they do to save the animals and preserve the beautiful land they so respect. Singita Castleton is a Mecca for animal and nature lovers as much as it is for those who love a luxurious getaway. An impeccably designed resort, this is one of those spots that’ll have you wondering why you don’t celebrate your birthday with a major adventure every year.

Throwing a big birthday bash may feel too self-indulgent for some folks out there, but we have an approach that makes it more about your friends having a good time than just about celebrating another revolution around the sun. Enter Camp Wandawega, a sleepaway camp for the grown-ups (and the not-so-grown-up).

A sprawling property that sits on a lake, this no-frills experience is free of scolding camp counselors and still full of activities. If you’re all for spending a b-day weekend soaking up sunshine surrounded by your whole posse, this spot is sure to make it on your birthday party bucket list.

Imagine being able to camp in Big Sur with all the warmth and comfort of home. Think about waking up in a private hideaway with the coastal breeze rolling in and the forest quiet mellowing out every muscle as you stretch your arms and legs on the wooden deck of a private hideaway. It technically doesn’t even have to be a bedroom behind you. It could be a guest suite, office, cocktail lounge, or yoga studio. It sounds magical, right? Well, it’s totally possible now.

This week's #BirthdayBucketList is the Autonomous Tent, the world's first transportable five-star boutique hotel. Promising freedom and adventure, Autonomous Tent enables a life of luxury without boundaries. Its name is a tad misleading, because while it looks like a tent from afar, it actually operates like a tiny cabin with the interior of a stylish hotel room.

In short, it’s amazing.
