There is no more terrific way to indulge in the finer things in life than a luxury safari in Southern Africa. These extravagant experiences are characterized by opulent suites fit for royalty, a seemingly endless supply of mouthwatering meals, sumptuous spa treatments, and unforgettable encounters with the continent's fascinating wildlife.
Naturally, you can enjoy plush accommodations anywhere in the world. What sets these luxury lodges apart are their beguiling settings, many of them far-flung and removed from the oppressive burdens of civilization. Turn your thoughts to the call of the wild, the Okavango Delta waterways pierced by the setting sun's gold, or velveteen night skies resplendent with the silver of the Milky Way.
A luxury lodge is but a pretty shell without the dedication and warmth of its staff. All the lodges we use have been hand-picked for their impeccable service and attention to detail. Staff members appear to have been hired for their 'sixth sense' - their ability to anticipate your needs, augment your experience and ensure that you depart the continent with lasting memories.
All the top luxury safari destinations in Southern Africa lie in or adjacent to National Parks. In all instances, small luxurious lodges provide accommodation in these remote wildernesses.
Though not as well known, these safari areas offer unique safari activities from luxury safari lodges & camps.
Botswana's Chobe National Park is the country's third largest national park. The bountiful waters of the Chobe River - for which the park is named - draw a spellbinding profusion of wildlife to its fertile shores, particularly astonishing numbers of elephants. Despite its size, Chobe boasts only a tiny handful of upscale lodges and mobile 'glamping', ensuring an intimate luxury safari experience.
Shamwari Private Game Reserve is located in South Africa's Eastern Cape province, a few hours' drive from the famous Garden Route region. Shamwari is favored amongst families who wish to travel to malaria-free wilderness areas but not compromise on the delightful indulgence of a luxury safari. The lodges are divided between child-friendly and adult-only, ensuring a choice for all.
Like Shamwari, Madikwe also offers luxury Big Five safaris in a malaria-free wilderness. That's where the similarities end, however. While Shamwari is green and lush, Madikwe straddles two drier eco-zones - bushveld and Kalahari - creating a unique environment. Animals that are rarely spotted elsewhere in South Africa - such as the brown hyena - may be encountered in Madikwe.
Welgevonden skirts the majestic Waterberg, a convenient distance from Johannesburg and Pretoria. This Big Five-bearing wilderness is characterized by towering ocher mountains and rolling valleys, carpeted with bushveld and semi-arid vegetation. Neighboring Marakele National Park hosts another sumptuous safari lodge - Marataba - in a private concession.
Phinda Private Game Reserve in South Africa's KwaZulu-Natal province boasts a wilderness unlike any other. With seven distinct ecosystems, your game drives are characterized by constantly shifting tableaus that host the Big Five and a wealth of different species. The reserve's lavish lodges are defined by their surroundings, from the treed groves of Forest Lodge to Rock Lodge's lithic perch.
South Luangwa National Park in Zambia spans a great wilderness area of riverine beauty and oxbow lakes. It is known as the birthplace of the walking safari, and there is no finer place to unwind after a day of exploring than in the venerated villa of a luxury safari lodge. The lodges blend handsomely into their bewitching surroundings, ensuring a seamless transition from bush to abode.
