No. 13 Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve Lodges, Kruger National Park Area, South Africa
The flagship of Sabi Sabi's collection of lodges on a more than 160,000-acre reserve bordering Kruger National Park, Bush Lodge's understated elegance highlights its collection of original African artwork. Courtyards surround sculptures created from uprooted trees and wood salvaged from the reserve. In the 25 thatched suites, earthy color schemes of cinnamon, cream and sienna draw inspiration from the original paintings and basketwork hanging on the walls. Twice-daily game drives, firelight boma dinners, and spa treatments using marula tree, African potato and aloe vera extracts keep parents occupied, while kids can enroll in the new-for-2011 EleFun Centre, an innovative kids' program offering a mix of age-appropriate conservation activities and outdoor fun.
