COM­PE­TI­TION: Ex­clu­sive to Travel Club Mem­bers

EX­TRA­OR­DI­NARY is de­lighted to an­nounce the ad­di­tion of Sa­fari Plains in the Water­berg re­gion to their im­pres­sive Ex­tra­or­di­nary Col­lec­tion.

Set in a malaria-free area against the back­drop of the mag­nif­i­cent Water­berg moun­tain range in the Lim­popo prov­ince, this five-star Tented Lodge will proudly wel­come guests from De­cem­ber.

Sa­fari Plains will not only of­fer guests an ex­tra­or­di­nary sa­fari ex­pe­ri­ence on 12000 hectares, an ex­ten­sion of the Greater Mab­ula Game Re­serve, but one that is fo­cused on en­sur­ing that guests are as­tounded with the best the bush can of­fer. Set along the wind­ing sand path­ways, each of the 20 breath­tak­ing tented suites com­mands a stun­ning space within the nat­u­ral, indige­nous bushveld.

These sa­fari-style tents of­fer the utmost com­fort and an op­u­lent am­bi­ence with pri­vate tim­ber wrap– around decks. The six lux­ury tents of­fer a larger main area and come com­plete with a pri­vate sala, which is per­fect for loung­ing on a lazy af­ter­noon. All tented suites are taste­fully ap­pointed with sunken baths, sep­a­rate show­ers and pri­vate fa­cil­i­ties. The hospi­tal­ity ar­moire of­fers a fully-stocked mini bar fridge, with tea and cof­fee fa­cil­i­ties. Air con­di­tion­ing en­sures that guests can en­joy year-round tem­per­a­ture-con­trolled tented ac­com­mo­da­tion.

The ‘fam­ily style’ lux­ury tents of­fer a sec­ond bed­room with two twin beds. Fur­nished with sim­plic­ity yet el­e­gance, the main lodge area pro­vides an aura of ro­mance through plush fur­nish­ings sym­bolic of African chic. The Sa­fari Plains team is there to at­tend to your ev­ery whim, from de­lec­ta­ble à la carte menus to a boun­ti­ful wine cel­lar – this is the per­fect ac­com­pa­ni­ment to a ro­man­tic can­dlelit bush din­ner. Wed­dings can be hosted in the heart of the re­serve with ev­ery at­ten­tion to de­tail, from fairy lights softly twin­kling in the night sky to vi­brant African en­ter­tain­ment. Our wed­ding pack­ages are com­pletely per­son­alised and tai­lored to suit your ev­ery need.

The lodge can ac­com­mo­date up to 60 guests and, weather per­mit­ting, the cer­e­mony can be held in the un­tamed bush or on the large wooden deck of the main lodge that boasts mag­nif­i­cent vis­tas, fol­lowed by a lux­u­ri­ous re­cep­tion in the sump­tu­ous din­ing room.

En­joy gen­uine hospi­tal­ity as well as guided bush walks, horse trails, eco ad­ven­ture trails (quad bikes) and morn­ing and af­ter­noon sa­faris. Guests will be able to view a range of wildlife in­clud­ing buf­falo, lion, leop­ard, ele­phant, gi­raffe, brown hyena, chee­tah and more. Ad­di­tional ac­tiv­i­ties in­clude hot-air bal­loon sa­faris and golf. Sa­fari Plains is a lux­ury of­fer­ing form­ing part of Ex­tra­or­di­nary, a col­lec­tion of lux­ury lodges and ho­tels in south­ern Africa.
