Luxury Safari Lodges

Luxury Safari Lodges

Some lodges offer a standard of food, accommodation, and service that is on a par with the best to be found anywhere in the world.

South Africa's Luxury Safari Lodges

The Most Prestigious and Exclusive Lodges in South Africa

If you are one of those people who are priviledged to be able to include a stay in one of South Africa's top luxury safari lodges, you can rest assured that your safari experience will be like nothing you have ever done before.

The combination of unbeatable game viewing and the comfort that you will find yourself ensconced in during your safari stay will, without doubt, just heighten the enjoyment of your safari.

Whilst a lot of safari lodges will call themselves 'luxury', there are a significant number that take the defination of 'luxury' to an entirely different level.

Not only will you find yourselves in a lodge that is situated in the best location for game viewing (and in some cases, on private land that only the lodge's own rangers can traverse on, which only adds to the exclusivity of the safari), but you will also be looked after attentively from the moment you arrive to the moment you depart, and your accommodation and food will equal anything that you will find in a top 5* London or New York hotel. 

In summary, even without the wildlife these safari lodges would still be world class destinations.
