Safari lodges

Safari lodges, also known as lodges, are sturdy buildings located in the wilderness. These lodgings are commonly positioned within wildlife parks and reserves. They are constructed using materials like stones, bricks, timber, and thatch, designed to harmonize with the natural environment. 

The accommodations offer private en-suite bathrooms, spacious bedrooms, showers with running water, hot water taps, and flush toilets. Moreover, they provide various facilities such as swimming pools, a separate bar area, lounges, dedicated restaurant spaces, fire pits, libraries, gyms, and spas.

Permanent camp 

Permanent camps are also referred to as tented camps used for safari activities. Tented camps are commonly equipped with either full canvas tents or structures consisting of canvas walls, roofs, and floors. In contrast to safari lodges, tented camps offer a smaller number of rooms.
