Safari Lodge

Luxury safari lodges in Africa are something special. Surrounded by bush, safari lodges either sit on private concessions, game reserves or national parks. Giving guests the front-row seat to wildlife sightings, guests can enjoy game drives with experienced trackers and game rangers, enjoy spa treatments overlooking the plains, and go stargazing after a sundowner. There’s also boma dinners, bush breakfasts and walking safaris to be enjoyed at safari lodges. Our pick of luxury lodges are located in Southern and East Africa, exclusive, private and make you feel like you have bush all to yourself.
