Arathusa Self-Catering Home

Self-Catering Bush House in the Sabi Sand Reserve

Arathusa Safari Lodge has opened their self—catering house to give you to give your family and friends the pleasure of your own space and the freedom to explore your way. While the house itself is self-catering, you’ll still enjoy every comfort and luxury that an Arathusa Safari Lodge stay has to offer.

Under 3 hour’s drive from the nearest city of Nelspruit and just a 50-minute flight from Johannesburg, Arathusa’s Self Catering Unit at Arathusa Safari Lodge puts a bush break on your doorstep and is ideal for a weekend break or school holiday.

The self-contained Self-Catering Unit is Arathusa’s more private accommodation, set next to the main lodge with its own position on the watering hole. It’s a prime location that sees much of the reserve’s wildlife come by and you’ll have front row seats on your deck over the water.

The lodge lies within the private Sabi Sand Game Reserve, which shares an unfenced border with the world-renowned Kruger National Park. The game viewing is exceptional and on drives, you’ll likely be treated to sightings of all the Big Five, with usually elusive leopards frequently spotted here.


The house is only available for exclusive use and accommodates a maximum of 10 people in five bedrooms, which are all en-suite, children included. Children of all ages are welcome.

The house features a full kitchen; lounge and dining area; furnished, river-facing deck with firepit; furnished patio; and swimming pool.

The house is cleaned daily and includes the services of a housekeeper who is on hand to help in the kitchen. Linen, as well as bath and swimming towels, are provided

Exclusive use includes its own private safari vehicle, ranger and tracker for a very personal game viewing experience.
