Lion at Arathusa

Arathusa Safari Lodge is an 868-hectare property. Traversing during game drives, however, takes place over an area of approximately 4000 hectares – due to reciprocal agreements with neighbouring landowners. This does not affect the quality of the exclusive safari experience however, as there are very few vehicles to impact on the solitude enjoyed during game drives.

Arathusa’s shared traversing area includes land owned by Elephant Plains, Simbambili, Chitwa Chitwa, part of Djuma, as well as private land.

The landscape is rich and varied, comprising of open savannahs, riverine thickets, river beds and lush bush vegetation ensure interesting sights around each corner. The perennial Manyeleti River meanders its way through the property.
