A Safari Lodge (also known as a Game Lodge) is a type of tourist accommodation in Southern and Eastern Africa. Lodges are mainly used by tourists on wildlife safaris, and are typically located in or near National Parks or Game Reserves.
Game Reserves (especially in South Africa) are large areas of land set aside and protected for wild animals.
South Africa still has a wealth of wild animals. We also have a beautiful list of birds that you will find at most of our Game Reserves.
