Arathusa Safari Lodge offers an exceptional safari experience – expect a high concentration of an assortment of game, including the Big Five, and frequent leopard sightings. Arathusa Safari Lodge is situated on a large waterhole, ensuring interesting game and bird viewing from the comfort of the camp. Standard and private luxury accommodation options, exceptional service, value for money and luxury spa services from Arathusa Safari Lodge Spa are just a few of the things that put Arathusa Safari Lodge in a league of its own.
The 4 Luxury Rooms are remote and exclusive units further removed from the main camp facilities. Each room has a king-sized bed, massive bathroom en-suite, lounge area, private plunge pool and shaded verandah. Regrettably, the luxury rooms do not have a view of the waterhole. Arathusa Safari Lodge is unique and highly sought after by visitors because of its prime location within the Sabi Sand Reserve, adjacent to the unfenced Kruger National Park. Together these two areas comprise one of South Africa’s most incredible and pristine preserved wilderness sanctuaries.
There are 4 water-facing Luxury Rooms within Arathusa’s main lodge perimeter, overlooking the waterhole (effective 01 January 2017 this will increase to 9 water-facing rooms). Each room is uniquely designed, with fresh interiors and a focus on light and space. Private verandahs overlook the waterhole, for full appreciation of Arathusa’s signature feature.
Arathusa has 4 bush-facing Luxury Rooms which are remotely located, away from the lodge. Each of the bush-facing Luxury Rooms has its own plunge pool and verandah, and affords guests with the advantage of privacy within the untamed wilderness. Each unit also enjoys a lounge area within the extensive open plan unit, as well as indoor and outdoor shower.
The Aroma Boma is built on the banks of the dry Mabrak riverbed amongst the trees and away from the main lodge area, so the only likely disturbance is perhaps the odd elephant wandering past! Ulusaba uses a range of products from ‘Africology’. ‘Africology’ prides itself on its African roots, taking inspiration from home and using local active ingredients including Rooibos, Aloe, Marula and African Potato. Hit the gym and work up an appetite. It’s equipped with a running machine, bike, multifunctional weight station and free weights.
Game drives in an open safari vehicle meander their way into the bush each morning and late afternoon in search of animals both large and small. Close contact encounters are guaranteed affording unparalleled photographic opportunities of The Big Five and much more (including over 300 bird species – a treat for keen birders!). Experienced and personable rangers are coupled with local trackers. Together they ensure a first class safari experience. Guided walks with an armed ranger may also be arranged. Being on foot brings an altogether different view of the bush.
