Mesmerising South African Game Lodges
South Africa is known for its hospitality and guests can expect hospitality in abundance at South African game lodges. Staff are carefully selected and trained to be professional, friendly and informative at all times. Not only do these popular lodges offer an authentic African feel but can also assist with information on local attractions and tours. For even greater convenience we at African Sky Safaris can assist you in planning your entire itinerary so as to ensure that your SA game lodge experience is that much more special.
Most South African game lodges offer visitors a local perspective with world class amenities. These sought after facilities usually include full African décor, thatched roofs, high ceilings, authentic African art in the rooms and leisure areas, deep sofas and stuffed animals or replicas thereof. Tapestries adorn lounges and paintings of African landscapes line the walls. In addition, the hot summers often call for air-conditioning in all rooms and chalets. The 4 and 5 star lodges spare nothing to create the best in luxury and comfort. The complete bush experience is also available and select lodges are bush establishments where facilities are more basic but not less impressive in terms of experiencing Africa at its best.
As the names suggest, South African game lodges are either within or in close proximity to game parks; often many are right at the entrance gate. If not situated in a park, the lodge would have open game vehicles and guides for the convenience of guests who would want to visit the nearby parks. The guides are knowledgeable and are able to edify guests on the general environment, the animals, birds, trees and plants.
Many of the South African game lodges also have swimming pools for the enjoyment of guests; they also have bars and restaurants where guests can try delectable local cuisine or if they are not keen on something local, they can order a standard dish from the menu. Breakfasts and teas or coffees are available and many have spas where a relaxing massage or facial treatment can be booked. On occasion outside meals are cooked over an open fire and the meal is also taken outside at tables that are set in style.
