Top-5 luxury safari lodges


Staying in luxury safari lodges, a person gets great service, perfectly-designed accommodation and excellent location for game viewing. What do people miss most when they go out into the wild? They lack the amenities, making the rest convenient.  You do not have to worry over it when you select one of the best African safari lodges. There you can enjoy world-class cuisine, Jacuzzi and excellent view on African wild nature right from your terrace and your swimming pool.

Singita Sabi Sand is a private game reserve that takes 45,000 acres. It can boast of rich wildlife, one of the best in this respect. The resort adjoins Kruger National Park. The Singita Private Game Reserve was created in 1926. So, it is the oldest in the country.

Ebony Lodge is designed with European tradition and African features. The original simplicity is combined with unobtrusive luxury in it. The guests love the place for down-to-earth coziness and warmth. Also, Boulders enters the top lists, which is located in Singita private reserve. Its modern design is intricately interwoven with retro details and classic African textures. Enjoy South African dishes on your wooden deck and explore the surroundings during the game drives or with guided safari walks.

If you are a first time safari traveler, then it is better to choose Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti in Tanzania. It offers 77 rooms with modern African décor. The lovers of luxury can stay in a suite with a plunge pool or a villa with a private swimming pool. Try tasty meals in one of the three restaurants. The place is great if you travel with your family. There is a Kijana Klub to entertain children and teens, a spa with treatment pavilions and other amenities. There is much to do at leisure. You can do sports in a fitness center, take safari photography classes, arrange picnics in the bush, and explore Africa on a hot-air balloon ride or during the game drive. The guests like to gather on the sundeck to look at the animals who come to the watering halls to drink. The resort adjourns Serengeti National Park with its rich wildlife. It is a great destination where you can see “the Big Five”, which include five must-see wild African animals: leopards, lions, rhinoceroses, buffaloes and elephants.

If you want to spend your vacation among elephants, you should stay in Abu Camp suites in Botswana. Nothing is going to distract you there. There are no phones, e-mail facilities or faxes as there is no electricity, so you are cut off from civilization. People get to the middle of wilderness but not feel deprived at that. The lights in this camp and hot-water facilities are provided with solar energy. It is a great place to enjoy pristine wilderness as herds of elephants pass by. There is hammock on your deck, from which you can look at the stars, wild animals and enjoy the charm of safari.

A charming and elegant destination Elsa’s Kopje, which is located in Meru National Park, Kenya, is also one of the top luxury safari lodges. Elsa is the name of the lioness, which became famous after British drama film “Born Free” (1966). It was very popular and received much positive acclaim. The same can be said about the lodge that was named after the lioness Elsa. Each cottage features a breathtaking scenery. The houses are beautifully crafted on the rocks in a secluded place. The Daily Telegraph called the place the heaven for romantics. There is a thriving rhino sanctuary in the park.
