The low­down An eco-friendly must-visit that’s big on style.

Best for Wildlife fans who want to get up close and per­sonal with na­ture. If you want a front-row seat at the cin­e­matic ex­pe­ri­ence that is the Kruger Na­tional Park, this newly re­vamped lodge is the ideal spot to tick off the Big Five. Sus­pended over the N’wanetsi River, eco-conscious hos­pi­tal­ity is the name of the game, with so­lar-pow­ered air con and tex­ture-rich nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als à gogo. The 13 suites are decked out in an un­showy, sa­fari-light style and there’s a four-bed pri­vate villa, com­plete with staff, if you’re feel­ing ex­tra flush. The com­mu­nal spaces have a real out­side-in vibe and, along­side all that na­ture, there is some se­ri­ous in­dul­gence, in­clud­ing a wine stu­dio and breath­tak­ing rooftop view­ing area. In ad­di­tion to the daily game drives, the range of ac­tiv­i­ties in­cludes stargazing, a thrilling walk­ing sa­fari and a re­lax­ing mas­sage over­look­ing the bush. Food-wise, there are healthy smooth­ies on tap and divine global-in­spired dishes by cel­e­brated chef Liam Tom­lin. Even if you don’t get to spot ev­ery­thing on your list, a few days hang­ing out here with Mother Na­ture will en­rich your mind, body and spirit.
