Staying at a private lodge when on safari in the Kruger National Park offers visitors the first-hand experience of living in a prime position within the game reserve’s exclusive concessions areas. These parcels of prime game-viewing land are reserved for the exclusive exploration by lodge guests.
That is just one of many perks to be enjoyed when booking into a safari lodge. Five-star treatment is standard practice. These luxury lodgings also offer guests views of the incomparable sunsets over the African bushveld.
Rooms are luxuriously appointed with en-suite bathrooms. Some lodges even have private outdoor showers (as well as the en-suite!) for a true safari experience. Overhead fans and/or air-conditioning keep the sleeping quarters cool throughout the hot African summers. Most rooms also have large windows and sliding doors for unobstructed views. These will lead to private patios where game-spotting can continue over sundowners.
Dining at a lodge is comparable to any fine restaurant in the world. Highly trained professional chefs create menus based on seasonal ingredients. Evening meals are usually served under the stars – a romantic way in which to end a day on safari.
Depending on the lodge chosen, visitors can expect additional luxuries such as private swimming pools, spas at which to enjoy a relaxing massage and a gymnasium.
From outrageously extravagant, to a romantic retreat or top-class facilities for a family, the Kruger National Park’s safari lodges have it all and at prices to suit all budgets.
