To guests staying in one of the seven high-design lodges on-site, the 54,000-acre reserve’s teeming wildlife—black rhinos, elephants, cheetahs, and over 380 species of birds—seems to have been there forever. But this biodiversity is the result of an intensive ecological restoration program that transformed scarred and misused farmland into one of southern Africa’s most diverse game parks.

Room to Book:

The six-unit Vlei Lodge sists on the edge of woodland meadow and is often visited by animals.

Insider Tip:

Arrange a trip to one of the nearby Zulu villages.
