Arathusa Safari Lodge
Arathusa Safari Lodge is situated in the northern section of the Sabi Sand Game Reserve. This private reserve is world renowned for exceptional game viewing, and Arathusa is no exception. Since the lodge overlooks a large seasonal waterhole, you don’t even need to leave camp to catch sight of buffalo, elephant and other animals. Arathusa is a well-priced safari option with 9 water-facing suites and 4 bush-facing suites.
Suites are spacious and comfortable, and the en-suite bathrooms have both indoor and outdoor showers. For more space and privacy, pick one of the bush-facing suites which also have a lounge area and their own plunge pool. The safari spa offers a range of treatments, and there’s a lovely swimming pool deck where you can watch the comings and goings of wildlife at the waterhole below.
Twice-daily game drives are sure to offer up exciting photographic opportunities. The guides at Arathusa are friendly and knowledgeable and, together with the expert trackers, form a formidable team. For a change of pace, ask for a morning walking safari guided by an armed ranger. In the evenings everyone gathers together for dinner in the traditional open-air boma which is further lit by the beautiful African stars.
