Africa is brimming with luxurious new and revamped safari lodges and suites. From relaxing retreats to design-focused dens, Abra Dunsby rounds up the options.

For eco-enthusiasts
andBeyond Tengile River Lodge, South Africa


Conservation-led travel company andBeyond opened Tengile River Lodge in December, a collection of nine vast guest suites featuring 180-degree views of the Sand river, set within Sabi Sands Game Reserve.


Much of the material used to build the lodges has been repurposed, local designers have devised the decor, and the roofs are covered in sand so when viewed from overhead, the site has minimal impact on the area.

Wildlife fans can see: Lions, elephants and wild dogs have all been spotted right outside the lodge. On game drives, guests can also see zebras, white rhinos, wildebeest, giraffes, hyenas and hippos, to name a few.


What other activities can clients enjoy? Bush walks, local community visits, specialist photography lessons and cooking classes.


Best time to visit for wildlife: All year round, but the optimum time is between March and October.


Top tip: andBeyond recommends clients use the complimentary Swarovski Optik binoculars, which will be provided in all guest suites from June for game drives.


Book it: Mahlatini Luxury Travel offers a four-night stay at Tengile River Camp from £5,500pp based on two sharing on an all-inclusive basis, including flights, road transfers and scheduled camp activities.
