Hotels, Camps and Lodges of South Africa

From modern, cutting edge design to a more classic approach in a garden oasis, city hotels in South Africa's vibrant urban environment, sometimes drawing on the street for inspiration on in other cases, offering respite from the activity outside. Several top recommendations include the Cape Grace, Melrose Arch and the Mount Nelson. Plan a few days before or after a safari to enjoy the cuisine, shopping and cultural experiences in cosmopolitan South Africa.

Staying ahead of the curve means seeking out the best small hotels and retreats that South Africa has to offer, creating an individual experience for each traveler in locations that bring the South African experience to life. Welgelegen, Cape Cadogan and Four Rosmead in Cape Town, Ellerman House on the coast and La Petite Ferme and Franschhoek Country House in the Cape winelands are top picks!

Each lodge and safari area in South Africa has its own character, which can be matched to individual travelers' needs, from the legendary reserves of the Kruger National Park area (Sabi Sand Game Reserve and others), to the newer lands of Madikwe, Welgevonden and the Waterburg; to the plains of the Zulu Kingdom; the riverine bush of the Eastern Cape and the open expanses of the Karoo and Kalahari. Families, honeymooners, safari by horseback, walking safaris of the ultimate in bush opulence - there is the perfect lodge out there for each traveler. Tanda Tula, Lion Sands, Kwandwe, Ulusaba, Royal Malewane and Singita are just a few of the best!

The scenic wonders and excellent hotels, camps and lodges of Africa do not start and stop with South Africa. Within a 2-hour flying radius of Johannesburg, the diversity of Africa astounds: the isolated splendor of the Namibian desertscapes, the teeming game of Botswana, the roar of Victoria falls and the unspoiled island gems of Mozambique.
