Ask most people to list 10 top activities on their bucket list and a luxury safari is likely to be in there somewhere. However, if you’re like us, the thought of narrowing down a choice out of the many locations on offer is quite daunting, which is why we have teamed up with Flight Centre to bring you, the “Top 3 Luxury Safari Lodges around the World”.
Getting up close and personal with nature whilst on holiday can be one of the best experiences in the world, and not one you will likely forget in a hurry. Here’s our top three!
This is quite possibly one of the best places in the world for a safari. Located near Kruger National Park in South Africa, Sabi Sands has lodges that range from 4.5 to 5-star accommodation, each offering a unique stay.
Most notable is the Leopard Hills Lodge, which offers incredible views over the bush and is built on a hill overlooking a natural waterhole. Each of the eight glass-fronted suites here boast their own plunge pool, as well as superb views of the African bushveld below.
Sanbona Wildlife Reserve
Sanbona Wildlife Reserve in South Africa has three luxurious lodges available that are all 5-star quality. This wild resort offers guests a variety of accommodation options, including Tilney Manor, with breath-taking views of mountains and plains, a relaxation retreat with two therapy rooms, steam room and sauna.
There’s even an outdoor shower in your suite if you stay in this lodge, so you really can get up close and personal with nature. What better way to relax after a day out spotting some of Africa’s greats?
A Safari often conjures up images of the open plains of Africa, but that isn’t the only place to enjoy the experience. Another notable destination is Thailand and the highly regarded Elephant Hills Jungle Lake & Safari.
Combining the content of Africa safari camps with the lush jungles of Thailand, Elephant Hills is Thailand’s first luxury tented camp. Located in Khao Sok National Park, it is easily accessible from many of the popular beach destinations in Thailand, including Phuket, Krabi and Koh Samui.
There is something for everyone; the Elephant Camp has been tailor made with luxury in mind or, for something even more unique, why not stay at the Rainforest Camp, one of the only floating tented camps in the world?
