Arathusa Safari Lodge

Sabi Sands Game Reserve, South Africa

Silver price level

Mango Opinion

Arathusa, located in the northern part of Sabi Sands, offers very good wildlife viewing for those without the top end budget. At this price, there are some tradeoffs. Expect good but not gourmet food. The lodge has a small private concession but shares traversing right with several other nearby lodges so you will encounter others safari goers on your drives. 

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 pristinely preserved wilderness sanctuaries.

Arathusa offers an exceptional safari experience – expect a high concentration of an assortment of game, including the Big Five, and frequent leopard sightings. A large waterhole is situated in front of the lodge ensuring interesting game and bird viewing from the comfort of the camp.

Add to this the private luxury accommodations, exceptional service, great value for money and decadent spa treatments, and you have just a few of the things that put Arathusa Safari Lodge in a league of its own.

There are thirteen suites, nine of which face the waterhole in front of the lodge, and four of which are remotely located within the bush. Each has a bathroom en-suite, with shower, as well as a private outdoor shower and verandah. Amenities include a mini bar, electronic safe, hairdryer, air conditioning, mosquito net and tea/ coffee making facilities.
