Tented Safari Lodges in South Africa
South African Safari Lodges Offering Tented Accommodation
For most people the idea of spending the night under canvas surrounded by the sounds of the African bush brings to mind the romance of a bygone age of adventure.
Fortunately, there are many tented safari lodges in South Africa's private game reserves where it is possible to recapture this magic.
Many of these lodges offer a level of luxury that would normally only be found in the very best 5* hotels, with many ‘tents’ boasting air-conditioning, luxury bathrooms, and even private plunge pools!
For guests travelling on a more modest budget, there are other lodges which offer less extravagant tented accommodation, however the large tents all still have proper double or twin beds and en-suite bathrooms…it’s still a long way from most people's idea of roughing it!
