As a travel operator, we spend ages looking at different accommodations and gone are the days when we’d book rooms only the queen would be happy with. We do book luxury lodges, but our goal is for you to make memories and so we look at lodges that make these by the dozen. The lodges we find sit within National Parks, along the banks of rivers and are loved by others for more than there luxury feel, but because they provided the memory of ‘a waterbuck just outside our window’, ‘they served us the most fantastic…’, ‘we had the most beautiful view from our window’ . The room types in which you will stay include lodged rooms, chalets and permanent tented chalets, each of which guarantee a comfortable night’s sleep after a day full of adventure.
