Guests to Arathusa are treated to an exceptional wildlife experience, including the prized "Big Five" - the lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and buffalo. These formidable species earned their reputations as the most dangerous animals to be hunted on foot. The phrase "Big Five" was coined by hunters of yesteryear - before the advent of the photographic safari.

With exceptional sightings of leopard (usually the most elusive of cats), lion and rhino during game drives - camera lenses are continuously filled with close contact wildlife interactions. There is so much more to The African Safari than the Big Five. A veritable collection of smaller creatures add colour to the safari experience. And one need not leave the comfort of the camp to see massive herds of buffalo, antelope and elephant families which gather at the camp's waterhole.

Arathusa has both standard rooms and ultra-luxurious exclusive suites tucked into the untamed African bush. The camp is completely open-plan and flanks a mammoth waterhole which pulses with animal activity.

This is the perfect location for the nature enthusiast who seeks an intimate environment and warm hospitality at an affordable daily rate.


Arathusa Safari Lodge is an intimate and hospitable camp. Thatched luxury suites are within the camp's perimeter. Each have a bathroom en-suite (with bath and separate indoor and outdoor showers), and a verandah for optimum enjoyment of the surrounding wilds. Twin rooms may also be arranged. 


Arathusa has recently launched 4 ultra-luxurious suites. These remote and exclusive units are further removed, and have their own private plunge pools and lounge areas.


Fabrics are natural, furniture classic and the interior design both simple and elegant. Additional amenities include a mini bar (stocked with a selection of beverages), an electronic safe, hairdryer, air conditioning, direct-dial telephone, mosquito net and tea/ coffee making facilities. There are no 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.
