Safaris Hotels

Main Camp

Pros

  • Authentic
  • Sweeping wilderness views, amazing game viewing

Cons

  • Rondavels are a bit old-fashioned, but that goes with the ambience

Fodor's Review

Stone and thatch air-conditioned rondavels with separate his-and-her bathrooms are decorated in creams and browns and furnished with cane armchairs, colorful handwoven tapestries and rugs, terra-cotta floors, and original artwork. Public areas have a genuine safari feel, with plush couches, animal skins, and African artifacts. Shaded by ancient jackalberry trees, a huge deck overlooks the Sand River and its continuous passing show of animals. Browse in air-conditioned Monkey Room for books and wildlife videos, sample the magnificent wine cellar, sun yourself by the pool, or stay fit in the well-appointed gym. The food (among the best in the bush) is tasty, wholesome, and varied, with a full buffet at both lunch and dinner. Children are welcomed with special programs, activites, and goody-filled backpacks; children under five are not allowed on game drives. One guest room is geared toward travelers with disabilities.
