Luxury Tented vs Luxury Lodge

Luxury safari lodge - Luxury Tented vs Luxury Lodge | Luxury African Safari Vacations | Classic Africa

* The table below does not list all features and highlights, only those that are relative strengths compared to the other option in the table.

* Luxury tented camps feature rooms with canvas walls; luxury lodges feature rooms with solid walls (bricks and mortar). All are five or six  rated (Cick here for an explanation of our rating system).

* It is possible to combine a luxury tented and a luxury lodge destination, and many of our clients like to do this. The only downside is that you very often "lose" a night in Johannesburg en route between South African reserves and those in countries to the north.


Luxury Tented Safari
Luxury Lodge Safari 
* Vast wilderness areas, remote and pristine destinations. Unfenced, unmanaged, self-sustaining ecosystems. * Closer to civilization with land communications (phone, fax, internet) and mainline electrical power. Proximity to world class medical care
* High degree of habitat diversity, with wet and dry areas = diverse array of species and activities. * Guide and tracker (assistant guide) per vehicle
* Large herds of grazers = high volume of game and healthy predator populations  * Concentrated diversity of 'high profile' species (e.g. the 'Big Five'). Rhinos are a real strength (leopards also in some areas).
* Spectacular landscapes and natural wonders * Ease of travel - good flight connections within South Africa
* Environmental sensitivity and minimal human impact. Thin canvas walled rooms feel "close" to the bush (e.g. hear animal sounds as night). * High levels of luxury (e.g. air conditioning) with luxury facilities (e.g. spa and gym) and fine dining
* Combine easily with Victoria Falls * Combine easily with Cape Town
* Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe (Namibia) * South Africa (Namibia)
