Planning a luxury safari can seem like a rather daunting task, especially considering the variety of safari destinations that there are for you to choose from, but what is perhaps more challenging is choosing where to stay whilst you’re on your Africa holidays. Below I have compiled a list of some of the top lodges for you to stay at in a variety of locations, from Botswana to Tanzania.

Mombo camp, Botswana – is renowned for being located in one of the best game areas in Africa, having excellent sightings of lions, leopards and cheetahs.  This idyllic safari lodge is located on the northern tip of Chief’s island within the Moremi Game reservation in the Okavango Delta. The lodge is built under large trees which overlook an open flood plain, which is highly active with an abundance of wildlife, with the guests viewing a variety of animals without even leaving the veranda of their accommodation.

Elsa’s Kopje, Kenya – is one of the most luxurious safari lodges in Africa, set in a luxury oasis in the wilds of the Meru National Park. The lodges have an open front to make the most of the environment that you’re in, with many of the lodges having their very own swimming pool adding even more indulgence and luxury to your surroundings. This park experiences a rich diversity of wildlife unlike any other park or game reserve in Kenya. A highlight to your stay here has to be the incredible views outside which you can truly make the most of with the open front to the lodges.

Lion Sands Ivory Lodge, South Africa – is located in the Lion Sands Private Game Reserve and forms part of the world famous ‘Kruger National Park’. This reservation has no fences which means that the wildlife is able to freely move between both safari parks, giving visitors an incredible array and variety of wildlife at their door step. This lodge has gained critical acclaim, winning numerous International awards. A highlight to your stay here is the breathtaking views of the Sable River, which can be viewed from your private accommodation. Guests are treated to incredible sites of baby elephants bathing in the river, zebra and gnu.

This incredible lodge has twenty extravagant and spacious tents on wooden decks, offering en-suite facilities. A highlight to your stay here is dining on the deck under the stars with incredible views of the Grumeti River.

Mvuu Wilderness lodge, Malawi – this peaceful lodge is located on the banks of the river in the Liwonde National Park. The river is home to large populations of hippopotamus that float gracefully in the river. The camp offers nine twin lodges and one luxury honeymoon suite, all with en suite accommodation. A highlight to your stay at the Mvuu Wilderness Lodge is a luxury river cruise, where you will get up close to hippos, crocodiles and wonderful birdlife.
