While Belmond Khwai River Lodge sits amid lovely fig trees and pristine floodplains where leopards, lions and rhinos roam, the luxury lodge still manages to elevate the experience. Each suite opens out onto its own secluded terrace and plunge pool overlooking antelope and zebra on the savannah. The heart of the lodge features a swimming pool, the Khwai River Lodge Spa and open-sided communal dining area for feasting on gourmet African cuisine while looking out at the starlit sky. Spend each day marveling at wildlife on exhilarating game drives and setting out into the landscape on foot with an expert guide.
Private Suite from $2,940 per night. Contact Jacqueline Faria, reservations consultant, email@example.com, +27 214 831 592, belmond.com/safaris
