The Airbnb listing 'Experience nomadic life in Reindeer family teepee' might just be the world's most remote getaway.

Zola, the Airbnb host who owns this listing, offers you a stay in a family-style teepee in northern Mongolia for the price of £94 (R1 662,98) per night.

The listing reads as follows: "Stay in the most remote Airbnb on the planet and experience heading lifestyle of the Reindeer tribe of Northern Mongolia. Spend 2 nights and 3 days with a Dukha family in the Taiga (winter forest) in northern Mongolia, stay in Teepee and herd (and ride) Reindeers."

Travel and Leisure recently featured this Mongolian treasure, saying it's the ideal spot to a) get away from it all and b) spend time with real reindeer herders in the Taiga forest in northern Mongolia. 

Sign us up please.  

The space offers you the following according to the listing: "Guests will be staying at a private traditional Dukha Teepee deep in the forest of Taiga.

"There will be 2 wooden beds, sleeping bags and open-fire stove. Hosts will use stove for heating the Teepee and preparing 3 meals a day. Main ingredients for the meals will be meat and noodles. If you have food restrictions, be sure bring your own food.

"Toilets: Nature! Please bear in mind there won't be any toilet or bathroom as Dukha people move around the forest."

Going primal.
