Back From the Bush – Luxury Safari Style!

My husband and I just got back from Kruger & the Sabi Sands on the weekend, after spending a week up in the lowveld, in the park and in the sands enjoying some of South Africa’s most luxurious safari lodges and tented camps, as well as SUPERB game-viewing. Apart from the wildlife, the heat and the luxury, I always am so interested in the style & decor of the lodges, really capturing a specific type of feel that is consistent throughout.

Safari Style at Tinga Narina

We stayed at Cybele Forest Lodge near White River in the Panorama Route regions, really beautiful lodge well known for their food, excellent walks and pretty garden scenery; Tinga Narina Lodge, a fantastic 5 star game lodge in a private concession on the border of the Sabi Sands and close to Skukuza Camp; Hamiltons Tented Camp, situated south of Satara Camp in its own private concession and reliving the age-old classic colonial safari; and Elephant Plains Game Lodge, a really comfortable and welcoming safari lodge in the heart of the Sabi Sands – South Africa’s most prolific wildlife destination.

Here are some pics of the lodges, just to give you a taste! All to do with the incredible decor, style and feel:
