African Safari Lodges by Destination

The African safari lodges we include in our packages are scattered across the most enchanting corners of the African continent, from South Africa's storied Lowveld region to Botswana's wildlife-rich outposts. Explore the lodges in our collection via their incomparable wild locations.

The safari lodges of the Kruger National Park range from some of the most exclusive properties on the continent (Singita Lebombo and Sweni) to four-star properties that offer fantastic value, like Hamiltons Tented Camp and Lukimbi Safari Lodge.

The Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve is popular for its award-winning lodges. Some truly extravagant safari palaces form part of the Sabi Sand contingent, but affordable (and high quality) four-star camps feature as well.

The safari camps in Botswana's Okavango Delta have all been constructed to leave only the most minimal footprint behind. The focus is largely on eco-friendly building materials and structures that blend in well with the surrounding environment.

The most sought-after lodges in the Chobe National Park enjoy prime riverfront locations, offering easy access to sunset cruises on the Chobe River. Lodges in concessions should not be discounted, however, as the views over the floodplain are spectacular.

Etosha National Park's luxury safari lodges are located on private concessions that share borders with the park, like Ongava and Onguma. Within the park itself, comfortable rest camp accommodation is available.

The lodges in Sossusvlei are frequently lauded for their unique style and high quality of service and food available here in the middle of nowhere. The stargazing opportunities are simply sublime, with most lodges boasting an on-site expert.

When it comes to lodging at the Victoria Falls, guests have the option of staying on either the Zimbabwean or Zambian side of the Zambezi River. Some of the best lodges are actually further afield than the riverbanks.

The lodges that we use in Mozambique are characteristically remote and luxurious, from hideaways on private islands in the Quirimbas archipelagos to outposts on leagues of near-virginal beaches.

Safari lodges located in the Timbavati Private Game Reserve range from authentic bush camps like Umlani to luxurious fives star lodges like Kings Camp with its tranquil setting overlooking a waterhole.
