Scattered throughout Africa’s parks and reserves are world class game lodges and permanent tented safari camps.
Typically, these properties include all meals and guided game activities. They are well located in regions heavily populated with wildlife and the accommodation is often African inspired. Game lodges offer accommodation ranging from hotel-like rooms, to thatched roofed chalets and cottages, with balconies, en-suites and conveniences akin to a hotel. Luxury lodges will often feature private plunge pools, bathrooms with picture windows overlooking the bush and even treehouse sleep outs. Communal areas often include swimming pools, extensive decked areas with views of waterholes frequented by animals, spa treatment centres and curio shops.
Tented camps revisit the era of the grand tour, when guests stayed under permanent canvas-sided tents. Tented camps are either immersed in the bush, or overlook waterholes with a central focus on wildlife viewing. Tented camps offer most, if not all, of the comforts and conveniences of a lodge with social areas often reflecting bygone days of safari. Your tented room reflects that of a hotel room with an en-suite bathroom, mosquito netted beds and permanent lighting. Tented camps tend to be social affairs offering pre-dinner drinks, communal dining and post-dinner fire pit conversation.
The African continent includes over 50 countries, each with individual tribal groups, traditions, dialects, landscapes and wildlife species.
