Africa’s Most Eye-Catching Safari Lodges

From a 12-suite camp in Botswana to a Tulum-based brand with a new outpost in Namibia, Africa is home to incredible high-design camps.

Sightings of the Big Five and other extraordinary wildlife aside, the biggest highlight, hands down, of an African safari is a stay at an extravagant camp in the middle of the bush. 

These camps, also called lodges, are some of the finest properties in the world, says Deborah Calmeyer, founder of the luxury travel company Roar Africa, who is from Zimbabwe and spends more than half the year vetting camps all over the continent.
