Search for the Big 5 on morning or afternoon game drives. Arathusa Safari Lodge prides itself on Leopard viewing opportunities and 6 of the 14 are seen on a regular basis.
There is even a female Leopard named ‘Safari’ who is often seen lurking very near to the camp! Bird lovers will have their hands full with over 300 species in the area to watch out for. Around the camp itself, rarer birds such as the Horus Swift can be seen.
Walking safaris allow guests an intimate understanding of the bush. Nothing beats a bush walk with one of the armed rangers and trackers who will teach you about certain plants and smaller animals that you might miss on a 4x4 drive. A bush walk is best enjoyed in the morning after your buffet breakfast, unless you prefer to head back to your room for a power nap.
Pamper yourself at the Safari Spa. This might be a traditional bush lodge, but it goes all out by offering a comprehensive spa and wellness experience. There are two tranquil rooms overlooking the camp's waterhole where trained therapists administer facial treatments, massage therapy, bath ceremonies, body wraps, manicures and pedicures.
