Lake Hillier: Western Australia

THIS. LAKE. IS. PINK. For a reason unknown to scientists, this super salty (but still swimmable) lake is bubblegum pink. The contrast between the beautiful lake, the white sandy beaches, and the lush green surrounding eucalyptus trees is insanely spectacular. You’ll feel like you’re on another planet and even if the flamboyant rose color isn’t your thing, the also-amazing ocean is just a short walk away.

Okavango Delta: Botswana

This is everything visiting Africa should be; that hot, sticky, swampy feeling of truly being in the wild. It’s a place so diverse in flora and fauna that the world’s best zoo could never even come close. Here, you can partake in the life-changing experience of floating through the delta on a Mokoro (pole-pushed canoe) with a local who knows all there is to know about the area. There are many small islands surrounded by the swampy water where, on a private game hike, you can get up close and personal to countless elephants, giraffes, and zebras, just to name a few. Look up pictures of the Botswana sunset and just try to fight the urge to visit this amazing location. You won’t be able to resist. Tip: leave your diamonds and Louboutins at home!
