Arathusa is a beautiful lodge with great service. This was our first safari and it didn't disappoint. It is not too big and overwhelming and it extremely peaceful and relaxing. Our room was gorgeous- spacious and luxurious and overlooked what used to be the watering hole, but this is now dried up. Nevertheless the views were gorgeous with impala wondering...

You get picked up at the air strip and the lodge is 3 min drive away. The lodge only has about 12-15 rooms. check in was...

We had a wonderful few days here. We stayed in the water facing chalets which are beautifully appointed. Staff were friendly and the service was great. The game driving experience was great. Saw Just about everything. James is a great ranger and went out of his way to find animals. We'll be back!!

Our family was treated well every day and night by staff. Roy and Chris, our Ranger and Tracker were knowledgeable and funny. They made sure we saw the animals we wanted to and they had lots of insight into animal behavior. Do not miss the bush walks in the morning. Sundown refreshments were a treat. Always tasty. If you forget...

My partner and I enjoyed three of the most amazing days on holiday we've ever had at the Arathusa Safari Lodge! Having done safari many moons ago in Kenya as a child and, for my girlfriend, more recently in Namibia, neither of us were expecting to be quite as blown away as we were. Roving around both on and off...

From arrival to departure we enjoyed every minute of our stay and were truly sorry to leave after three nights. We were glad we had chosen to fly to Arathusa, rather than drive - the last small flight was a nice experience in it self. Jamie and Sid made the safari drives a truly remarkable experience-viewing animals very close, seeing...

Our hats are off to the staff at Arathusa. We had an incredible trip. Ryan and Debeer, our ranger and tracker, were a wonderful team and had such a mastery of their domain. They found us so many things to see. Not only did we see the big five multiple times, but they took us to see things we would...

I can't say enough good things about my experience at Arathusa! The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating, the food was excellent, the setting superb and I'm still in awe with my experiences from the game drives. I highly recommend this lodge for anyone looking for a world class safari experience. I would also recommend flying into the private airstrip...

My husband and I had the most fantastic safari experience at Arathusa. Our guide Sean was great, he is very enthusiastic and his knowledge about the animals and plants was excellent. We saw so many animals on our six game drives, including the big 5, leopard cubs, and wild dogs. Because Arathusa is on private land the guides are able...
