The Springbok Lodge
Luxury Tented Accommodation
Luxury Tented Accommodation in a Big 5 Private Game Reserve
While the Big Five experience alone is enough to attract visitors, guests staying at Springbok Lodge leave with a different idea of “camping”… we call it Glamping!
Of our 21 luxury en suite tents, 9 plus 4* are luxury standard tents (2 sleepers) with the remaining 6 plus 2* being luxury family unit tents (4 sleepers). In total we can sleep 58 guests offering 5-star equivalent opulence out in the African bush.
*In recent years whilst adding more tents and renovating some of the older ones we have gone with the option of replacing the canvas walls of the tents with brick and mortar. Of these newer tents there are 5 x luxury standard tents and 2 x luxury family unit tents. Their unique feature is that the toilet is private (in its own cubicle with a door).
All tents are air conditioned – keeping you cool in the hot summer months and warm in the chilly winter months with the addition of electric blankets to keep guests extra snug.
Each of our luxury tents have their own viewing deck with chairs, a king-size bed (also available as twin beds), a hospitality tray, complimentary sherry, safety deposit box, hairdryer and complimentary toiletries (the basics). Our family units have a king bed plus two extra single beds (also available as 4 singles) in one open plan bedroom.
All tents have an open plan bathroom with a double basin, indoor bath tub with hand shower and a private open air outdoor shower.
Between game drives enjoy unsurpassed views from your tent deck or from the pool whilst relaxing with your favourite novel, or keeping up to date with family and friends by sharing your experience.
At the end of a thrilling day of game viewing and birding, indulge in a hot bath or enjoy the rush of an outdoor shower under the star-studded African sky.
