Arathusa Safari Lodge Game Viewing and Activities

Arathusa Safari Lodge prides itself on its leopard viewing. These territorial animals make their regular appearances in the area. Many of the animals become familiar and are easily recognized thus many have been named.

Over 90% of guests will experience The Big 5; a perfect opportunity to experience Africa at its best.
