New South Africa Safari – Tracking the Big Five

Experience the ultimate safari with Travelsphere spending your days Tracking the Big Five. Staying in a luxury boutique lodge in South Africa’s first-ever savannah biosphere reserve, you’ll discover a dazzling array of wildlife as well as have time to kick back and relax. The reserve’s diverse habitats provide the ideal conditions for an incredible selection of large mammals including the renowned ‘Big Five’ – lions, leopards, elephants, buffalos, and rhinos. Keep watch in the shadows for the elusive brown hyena, jackals, cheetahs, and a range of smaller, lesser-seen predators. And that’s not all – the sweeping savannah plains sustain iconic species including zebras, wildebeests, impalas, warthogs, and giraffes. Each game drive is in a luxury Land Cruiser and unveils a unique chance to witness wildlife in their natural habitat and learn about their behaviours and roles in the eco-system.

Safari Plains, your home for this unforgettable adventure, is a boutique, luxury safari lodge set in the Mabula Game Reserve. Your accommodation is in private luxury safari tents set along the winding sand pathways of the lodge. Each of the tented suites has a viewing deck with seating, tea and coffee making facilities, Wi-Fi and air-conditioning. Facilities include high–ceiling dining room, elegant lounge and friendly bar. The swimming pool is at the centre of the lodge grounds and has seating and loungers surrounding it for those relaxing afternoons. For further relaxation the lodge has its own spa with a menu of treatments available to book (payable locally).
