Combining Hotel Style & Nature

South Africa – It has been and always will be a popular place to visit all year round. It is a place that has something for everyone. Whether you are a nature lover, someone who loves to trek, explore or take in history and culture, there is just so much you can do here. However, when you are traveling, you will need to decide on the Hotels that you will be staying in. Everybody’s requirements are different – some prefer stylish over functional while others opt for popular hotels over offbeat ones. Keeping that in mind, here are five of the best hotels you can visit in South Africa.

Family vacations are best had in Jaci’s Tree Lodge. Each of the eight rooms available here is constructed around a Leadwood tree. You shower in the great outdoors and walk on raised walkways of wood to get to the restaurant and bar. The highlight is the fact that you are located in the middle of the Madikwe Game Reserve, which is on the border of Botswana.

If you find yourself in Cape Town, then the Cape Grace hotel that sits pretty on its own quay at the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront would be a good bet. No matter which room you are in, you get an unobstructed view of the Table Mountain. Even if the high rates of around $500 a night are not in your budget, settle for having a simple meal or drink here, and you will not be disappointed.

If complete luxury and novelty are what you are looking for, then the Phinda private game reserve might catch your fancy. It has seven separate habitats that you can explore. The hospitality wing here has 5 lodges that you can pick from and they provide the pleasure of glass enclosed luxury quarters. The Vlei lodge is by far the most beautiful with its stilted glass suites as well as thatch versions. You will feel like you are standing at the edge of a high cliff when here.

The Makalali Conservancy is a popular one in the Limpopo province; it is also where the Garonga Safari camp is based. It is quite popular among honeymooners, especially for its tented rooms. These tents are placed on a river bed and you have your own private deck to take in the views. Part of the package also involves a safari, and the best part is that you can spend the night on the deck under the stars and even have your own picnic basket supplied to you to keep you company.

With the Earth Lodge, you occupy a space that has literally been carved out of the Earth, an experience in itself. There are just 12 suites in this set up, and you get your own personal butler service too. Also available is an exclusive plunge pool, where you are placed in the center of the Sabi Sabi Game Reserve; it is one of the best in the country.

There are so many other places where you could stay, but if combining unique experiences with a touch of nature is on your mind, then you will enjoy the places mentioned above.
