Arathusa Safari Lodge
Safari Lodge in the Sabi Sand Reserve
Sabi Sand Reserve, Mpumalanga, South Africa
The Sabi Sand is part of the Greater Kruger National Park complex of reserves that have unfenced boundaries with each other.
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 pristinely 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. A large waterhole is situated in front of the lodge ensuring interesting game and bird viewing from the comfort of the camp.
Add to this the private luxury accommodations, exceptional service, great value for money and decadent spa treatments, and you have just a few of the things that put Arathusa Safari Lodge in a league of its own. Arathusa’s is an intimate environment… its open-plan design and natural décor mean that it blends seamlessly with the African bush surroundings.
The main living area is intended for comfort. Whether quietly reflecting on the view, reading a good book, or enjoying conversation with friends or fellow safari goers, the warmth and charm of the lodge environment is the foundation of the Arathusa safari experience. The infinity swimming pool overlooks the waterhole, and is the perfect spot for wildlife viewing while cooling off on a sweltering African summer’s afternoon (mind you, winter’s warmth is not far behind). Guests can enjoy an alfresco dining experience in the traditional open-air boma, while being serenaded by the sounds of Africa’s nightlife.
Arathusa prides itself on its leopard viewing. As these elusive cats are territorial, their regular appearance in the area enables us to plot their movements, and to observe their behaviour. Many of the animals become familiar and are easily recognised. Approximately 14 leopards are seen in the area in which Arathusa operates, six of which are seen on a regular basis.
There are also a number of different lion prides in the area, as well as a few nomadic males.
General “lowveld” game species are abundant in this section of the Sabi Sand Reserve, including giraffe, zebra, warthog, impala and more.
