Arathusa Safari Lodge is located in the northern section of the Sabi Sands Reserve, one of South Africa's premier game areas. The camp is an intimate one, completely open-plan and designed to harmoniously blend with the adjacent lake and African bush.Whether quietly reflecting on the view; reading a good book or simply enjoying a chat with your friends; the warmth and charm of the camp environment is the foundation of the Arathusa safari experience.
An infinity swimming pool overlooks the waterhole and is the perfect spot for wildlife viewing on a hot African summer's afternoon. A traditional open-air boma (brick and grass enclosed dining area) presents guests with a novel way of appreciating an enjoyable meal under the stars to the sounds of the African wild.
No more than twenty six guests are accommodated at Arathusa Safari Lodge. The thatched standard luxury rooms each have a bathroom en-suite (with bath and separate indoor and outdoor showers), and a veranda for optimum enjoyment of the surrounding wilds. Fabrics are natural, the design simple and elegant. The spacious luxury suites enjoy unparalleled views of the surrounding bush and each has it's own private plunge pool. Additional amenities include a mini bar (stocked with a selection of beverages), an electronic safe, hairdryer, air conditioning, mosquito net and tea/ coffee making facilities.
There are no telephones or televisions in the rooms at Arathusa. In keeping with the traditional safari experience, the bush is best experienced "al dente". Guests are however able to make calls from the reception area, and to send or receive e-mails and faxes.
Activities include early morning and evening game drives in four wheel drive vehicles to track the game.
