While the Kruger National Park may be the obvious choice for both local and international tourists booking safari holidays, KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) has its fair share of wild areas to explore. This part of South Africa has been a popular seaside destination for many holidaymakers for a long time. However, more tourists are travelling to this region for an amazing safari experience.
There are many ways to enjoy a safari trip in Kwazulu Natal. But if you want to explore the natural beauty of this area in luxury, consider booking at one of the private safari lodges in KZN for the ultimate experience.
Here are four ways to help you enjoy an exclusive and luxurious safari trip while visiting the wilderness of Kwazulu Natal on your next holiday.
The wilderness can be explored in so many ways but indulging in a luxury game lodge experience is THE way to go! Guided game drives and walks give you the ultimate Big Five experience while boma meals under the stars, end off each day. Luxurious accommodation allows you relax in comfort while hot days can be spent lounging next to the lodge’s swimming pool or your private pool.
If you prefer to be closer to Mother Nature, then glamping in style will give you what you need while still getting all the comforts of a luxurious safari experience. Exclusive safari tents are set up in the bush, letting you enjoy the proximity of nature and all its sounds, smells and sights. You’ll also enjoy boma feasts outdoors as well as guided game drives and walks.
A luxury safari trip should always include an African spa wellness experience! Treat yourself as you indulge in a relaxing massage on an open-air deck while drinking in the views of the expansive wilderness. Or, book a rejuvenating treatment in the luxury of your own lodge or safari tent. Depending on your choice of location, your safari lodge spa will offer a variety of treatments using various relaxation techniques.
Every luxury safari lodge will have its own list of activities you can select from to maximise your experience in the bush. Besides guided game drives and bush walks, some reserves offer river cruises where you can discover a whole new world of creatures. Many private safari lodges are also involved in conservation projects and they allow their guests to join in the various activities. Or, you can participate in local cultural events and learn about the traditional ways of the local communities.
Booking a trip to a luxury safari destination in Kwazulu Natal lets you enjoy the wilderness in so many different ways. You have access to all the comforts you need while still being close to Mother Nature. What’s more, you’ll be exposed to a range of experiences which will create memories that’ll last for years to come. Whichever way you choose to spend your safari, rest assured you’ll come away feeling rejuvenated, having had the ultimate African experience.
