Tsala Treetop Lodge, South Africa
An architectural feat that immerses you in the treetops and is perfectly situated along the coastal Garden Route, Tsala will enchant couples and families alike with its undeniable warmth. With just ten hide-away suites using natural materials of stone, wood and glass, the intimacy of being nestled or on top of the forest canopy is a jungle experience to completely shift your mindset.

Savute Elephant Lodge, A Belmond Safari, Botswana
Belmond’s home in the Savute Channel in Chobe National Park is “nature’s drama played out on your own private stage.” Staying in luxurious tented rooms with four poster beds and a private outdoor lounge on a raised platform, there’s plenty to witness at the adjacent watering hole, where elephants, cheetahs, antelope and hyenas always stop in for a drink. Time your visit with one of the largest zebra migrations, visit Bushmen paintings over 1,500 years old, and pay respect to 13 giant baobab trees that are over a century old.
Colina Verde, Mozambique
A true home away from home for larger families, you’ll find seclusion atop Machangulo Peninsula in Southern Mozambique.

Your meals are fully catered to by a private chef with opportunities to sandboard and go deep sea fishing.
Shipwreck Lodge, Namibia
Much like a dream, a total of 10 shipwreck-shaped en-suite chalets are mysteriously placed along the Namibian sand dunes of Skeleton Coast, complete with wood-burning stoves and a light footprint which uses eco-friendly water and solar power. An intriguing experience for the most adventurous traveller who seeks solitude, remoteness, and the poetic sound of waves crashing in the distance.
Matetsi Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
This family-owned safari lodge boasts distinctly African interiors and an all-Zimbabwean staff that contributes to a soulful “Matetsi Magic” that comes to life during your stay. As ‘Life on the River’ unfolds with bush dinners, wildlife sightings and sundowners of the vlei, here on the banks of the Zambezi, meet the people (and anti-poaching K9 team!) who live on 136,000 acres of Private Game Reserve with conservation at its heart.
Sausage Tree Camp, Zambia
Sheltered and spacious suites, open-air showers, and an infinity lap pool overlooking hippos at play in the river is travel at its best; Sausage Tree Camp is “the epitome of bush chic” in the heart of the Lower Zambezi National Park housing just 18 lucky guests. The main teak deck is the perfect place to host a special event, encouraging storytelling around the fire pit in the evenings.
