Top 10 Best Luxury Safari Lodges in South Africa

South Africa offers several safari destinations, but the most famous for spotting the big five (lion, leopard, rhino, African elephant and Cape buffalo) is Kruger National Park and its surrounding territory. The second most popular is Sabi Sand Game Reserve which is located adjacent to the Kruger National Park in the Lowveld of Mpumalanga. Measuring over 650 square kilometers Sabi Sand Game Reserve is home to a group of exclusive private game reserves. But also in other parts of South Africa you can find excellent game reserves and safari lodges. Our team of travel experts ranked the Top 10 best luxury safari lodges in South Africa. But since there are hundreds of safari lodges and we couldn’t quite agree on those making it into the top 10, we have decided to add five more excellent safari lodges. Our top places for a luxury safari experience include everything from exclusive safari camps to luxurious private pool suites with unspoiled views of the surrounding nature and wildlife.
