South Africa AccommodationSouth Africa Game Lodges

South Africa is a country where magic infuses the views and landscapes, where the smiles of the local people can only be matched by the splendour of the ocean, mountains, forests, savannahs, waterfalls and rivers. This country is known the world around for its extraordinary collection of fauna and flora, and some of the best places to see these treasures up close are in the numerous game parks, reserves, sanctuaries and national parks.

Throughout the country, there are parks that are home to the Big 5 – lion, leopard, rhinoceros, buffalo and elephant. These are breathtaking to see in their natural habitat, an experience that makes for lifelong memories. In addition, there are animals that range from tiny shrews to the tallest giraffes, and everything in-between. The birdlife is nothing short of breath-taking, offering bird watchers ample opportunities to capture some award-worthy photographs of exciting avian species.

Game lodges in South Africa range from rustic bush camps that immerse their guests in the wild side of Africa to luxurious 5-star retreats that showcase the bushveld on a platform of opulence. Those visiting the game lodges and reserves will enjoy bush walks, game drives, night safaris, and horse-back safaris, amongst other exciting activities.
