Sabi Sand » Lodges » Arathusa Safari Lodge

Arathusa Safari Lodge offers an exceptional, affordable, wildlife and Big 5 Safari experience in a traditional safari camp. This exceptional lodge is located within the world famous Sabi Sand Game Reserve, adjacent to the Kruger National Park.

Arathusa is an intimate safari lodge, completely open-plan and designed to harmoniously blend with the adjacent waterhole and African bush. Wood and thatch, air and water - an extension of the natural environment.

The main living area is intended for comfort. Whether quietly reflecting on the view; reading a good book; enjoying compatible banter with friends or fellow safari go-ers - the warmth and charm of the camp environment is the foundation of the Arathusa safari experience.

An infinity swimming pool overlooks the waterhole and is the perfect spot for wildlife viewing on a smoldering African summer's afternoon.

A traditional open-air boma (brick & grass enclosed dining area) presents guests with a novel way of appreciating an enjoyable meal under the stars to the sounds of the African wild.

Thatched luxury suites are within the lodge's perimeter. Each have a bathroom en-suite (with bath and separate indoor and outdoor showers), and a verandah for optimum enjoyment of the surrounding wilds.

Arathusa has recently launched 4 ultra-luxurious suites. These remote and exclusive units are further removed, and have their own private plunge pools and lounge areas.

Meal times at Arathusa Safari Lodge are a sociable affair. From the kitchen guests are treated to sumptuous dishes, fresh produce and home baked confectionary. A continental breakfast is served buffet-style, while a cooked meal is served according to guests' preference from the kitchen. A sumptuous lunch is prepared by the chef, and served plated to guests directly. Dinner is a 3-course affair on the deck overlooking the waterhole around a blazing fire (weather permitting).

Arathusa Safari Lodge now offers a comprehensive spa and wellness experience. This newly-built facility has two treatment rooms overlooking the camp's waterhole, and offers a wide choice of treatments to soothe the body, relax the mind, and indulge the senses.
