With outdoor granite bathtubs placed next to elephant pathways, exclusive open-air suites with views across hippo lagoons and phenomenal service, there is no doubt that these luxury lodges are going to blow your socks off!

At Yellow Zebra, we love luxury safaris! Think exquisite lodges and sumptuous tented camps set in prime locations for both comfort and game viewing – you will feel as if you are in the true wilderness, without missing out on the all-important feeling of indulgence. With well-appointed en-suite bathrooms, elegant furnishings, fresh crisp linen sheets, warm blankets and hot water bottles for chilly nights, and a spacious private deck with a plunge pool, wonderful for watching the animals pass by, accommodation like this is far more luxurious than you would ever imagine a ‘tent’ could be!

Dining alfresco under the stars, served by world-class chefs and appreciating wines specially selected from impressive cellars to enhance your dish, you will probably want for nothing more… but your personal butler will be on hand to take care of even the smallest request! Enjoying excellent food is an essential part of an African safari – and the best lodges and camps entice the most amazing chefs, those who are keen to take on the challenge of creating spectacular cuisine in such remote areas - making for the best safari in Africa!
