Lodge safari holidays give you the best of both worlds. You get to explore the African wilderness in the company of expert guides, but you’ll do so from a comfortable base, safe in the knowledge that you’ve got your own room to retire to after a long day’s drive through the plains. And unlike on a mobile camping safari, you won't have to scan the bush for predators before making a dash to the communal loo.
Lodge safaris are all about combining adventure with comfort; with days spent adventuring in the wilderness capped off by sundowners, good food and unblemished sleep
You won’t be sealed away from the wildlife though. Most lodges embody rustic luxury, so as well as a bar, a restaurant and your own cosy bed, you’ll get a verandah overlooking the wilds and you’ll be soothed to sleep by the sounds of the nature around you. You’re likely to travel between lodges during your safari to make the most of varying national parks and wildlife, but we recommend at least two nights in each, to let you relax and get to know your surroundings.
