Arathusa Safari Lodge is unique and highly sought after by visitors because of its prime location within the Sabi Sand Reserve, adjacent to the unfenced Kruger National Park. Together these two areas comprise one of South Africa’s most incredible and pristine preserved wilderness sanctuaries.

Arathusa offers an exceptional safari experience – expect a high concentration of an assortment of game, including the Big Five, and frequent leopard sightings. The lodge is situated on a large seasonal (now-dry) waterhole*, ensuring interesting game and bird viewing from the comfort of the camp. 

*Despite the devastating drought in the region over the last three years having affected the amount of water in Arathusa’s signature waterhole, vast amounts of game still gather on the open plains. We are eagerly anticipating the rains which will hopefully restore the waterhole to its former aquatic glory enjoyed since 1983.   

Private luxury accommodation options, exceptional service, value for money and luxury spa services from Arathusa’s Safari Spa are just a few of the things that put Arathusa Safari Lodge in a league of its own.
