Lize did such a good job putting together this custom trip for my husband and I. We particularly loved that we had a private guide (Andrew) in Capetown. It made our experience so personal and unforgettable. We also could not say enough amazing things about the safari lodge where we stayed (Arathusa). I could have stayed there for months! This is the very first time I have ever used a “travel agent” and I was so pleasantly surprised. I did not have to worry about a thing. Lize was great at making sure all transfers, rides, tours, etc were all taken care of. She was even great about checking in on us and being accessible while we were on our trip. Thank you, Lize!!

Hotel Review
Arathusa Safari Lodge
Sabi Sands Game Reserve

This safari lodge is so amazing. My husband and I spent 5 days here and loved every minute. Our room was beautiful and so we’re the grounds. Animals come up to the watering hole to drink daily and you see so much wildlife. Our guide (DeBeer) and tracker (Ish) were experts and got us up close and personal to so many animals. I was in heaven! The real star of the show when it comes to Arathusa, was the staff. From the moment we stepped foot on the grounds, we felt so welcomed and taken care of. The level of service is unmatched and we loved being pampered. Thank you, Arathusa staff for making our safari a dream!

Authenticity & Character
Staff was amazing
About 2-3 hours from nearby airports but you get to drive through local villages to get there.
Our waiter was so attentive and patient. Winnie also did a great job taking care of me at the spa!
Cleanliness & Comfort
We loved the room and the outdoor shower. Can’t beat the views!
