Client Rating for South Africa 5/5 from 74 reviews

Arathusa was our highlight in every respect. The game drives were phenomenal with our ranger Carlton and tracker Rief being a great team. We had so many highlights every drive. The staff at the lodge were so friendly , the food was great and the accommodation excellent. We had elephants, hyenas, ikuda and others wandering through the camp at various times and saw the big 5 and lots of other wildlife on our drives.
