Luxe safari lodges: Botswana and beyond

Inspired by the safari luxe look of our latest T&W Travel Series: Botswana, here are some of our dream destinations in Botswana and beyond. The wildlife and incredible landscapes are the main event, but these scene-stealing lodges and camps take glamping to a whole new level.


&Beyond Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge is a stunning modern safari lodge set in Botswana’s UNESCO World Heritage-listed Okavango Delta and adjoining a wildlife-rich game reserve. Its curved structure and wooden shingles are inspired by one of the area’s most elusive animal inhabitants, the pangolin.

Still in Botswana, but by contrast set amid the desert surrounds of the Makgadikgadi Pans, Jack’s Camp contrasts Bedouin-style canvas tents with vibrant Indian fabrics and colonial furniture for old-world glamping style. Meerkats and Kalahari lions are just two of the area’s wildlife drawcards.

The Big Five (lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino) are all on show along with a host of other wildlife in South Africa’s renowned Kruger National Park. Lion Sands three lodges and three treehouses are in pole position along the Sabie River, including the dreamy Kingston Treehouse.

Time your visit right to Singita’s Tanzanian property, the uber-luxe Sasakwa Lodge, and you’ll not only enjoy soaking up the turn of the century grandeur of the manor house and surrounding cottages, but you might be lucky enough to witness the annual migration of zebra and wildebeest sweeping across the Serengeti Plain below.

If you’re serious about immersing yourself in nature, Tswalu Kalahari lodge's Malori sleepout deck could be your perfect perch, complete with a plush king-sized bed that can be rolled from under the thatched canopy to the open sky. Located in the South African part of the Kalahari Desert near the Botswana border, the surroundings speak for themselves.

For a glamping expedition a little closer to home, Longitude 131° is located in the heart of Australia rather than deepest darkest Africa. No Big Five to spot, but knockout views of Uluru and Kata Tjuta and a unique indigenous cultural experience.
