Cresta Mowana Safari Resort & Spa

View website
Chobe National Park, Botswana

The luxury Cresta Mowana Safari Resort & Spa was built around an 800-year-old baobab tree on the banks of the Chobe River. All rooms are air-conditioned and feature tea/coffee-making stations, satellite TV, a mini bar, hairdryer, mosquito nets, and electric insect repellants. Savor delectable African cuisine at the on-site restaurant, sip a cocktail at Savuti Bar, or grab a snack at the Boma Terrace. After a day of game viewing, retreat to the swimming pool that seems to disappear into the Chobe landscape. For a truly unique experience, visit the resort’s salon — located in a treehouse.

Iganyana Tented Camp

View website
Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe

With its unique combination of adventure and luxury, the Vantage-exclusive Iganyana Tented Camp safari lodge is as authentic as it gets, but makes no compromise on comfort. In a private concession, a few minutes from Hwange National Park, the rest of the world feels far away as you connect to the enchantment of the African bush. Spacious, custom-made safari tents feature air-conditioning and en suite bathrooms. Spend your days enjoying safari activities, watch the sunset while soaking in the outdoor swimming pool, and relish evenings around the fire pit and watering hole that's well-frequented by elephants.

The Wallow, Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

This new Vantage-exclusive safari lodge is on a private concession inside Victoria Falls National Park. Enjoy sumptuous soft furnishings, glass-fronted, air-conditioned tented suites with bespoke toiletries, soft bathrobes, hair dryer, tea/coffee station, and your own private wooden deck. Tables laid with white linen and lit with candlelight add a touch of romance to The Wallow’s dining terrace. The nearby mud wallow, after which it’s named, is frequented by elephants from Victoria Falls Wildlife Trust, a Vantage Cares Initiative, and we’ll be able to watch them enjoy a mud bath.

Lions Rock Rapids Camp

Kruger National Park, South Africa

A serene safari lodge close to Kruger National Park, Lions Rock Rapids Camp offers a convenient location and an off-the-beaten-path experience combined with pure comfort. Each of the 21 safari tents has luxurious amenities, en suite bathrooms and private patios. With its restful setting on the banks of the Sabie River, nature is the star. View the peaceful river from your patio, stroll on the grounds to spot the prodigious birdlife, enjoy a meal by star and candlelight in the riverside boma, or sip a drink while listening to the sounds of the African night.
