Best Places To Stay In South Africa; Safari Lodges


The majority of our itineraries are based around Cape Town, Kruger (or the Sabi Sands) and the Garden Route; however there are a number of other parks and areas worthy of consideration. South Africa has a number of private game reserves, ranches, trekking areas and also beach destinations away from the main tourist hotspots. We design holidays throughout the country, so we mention here a few alternatives to the more popular top three.

Tswalu

1,000sq km of game reserve, with just two safari lodges at its heart, Tswalu is a world apart, a secret Eden preserved by great hearted and happily generous philanthropists. A superb room lodge with impeccable service; gorgeous house staff to meet and greet and treat you to their Relais and Chateaux-earning gourmet delights, then your own dedicated guide and bushman tracker to take you, all alone, in the company of your own in-jokes and safari interests, on a private safari. With antelopes abounding, and waterhole action in front of your room; this is civilised, gentle safari country, and our first choice for families with children.


Kwandwe

Kwandwe is a 22 000 hectare game reserve two hours’ drive to the north of Port Elizabeth. This is a great malaria free safari option to combine with an itinerary featuring Cape Town and the Garden Route. This is a big 5 game reserve, but is particularly good for viewing the rarer aardwolf and aardvark.
