The Etali Experience

Etali Safari Lodge offers a captivating array of experiences that promise an unforgettable getaway. Embarking on a Big 5 safari adventure is undoubtedly the highlight of any stay, where guests can witness the majesty of Africa’s iconic wildlife up close led by knowledgeable guides.

Beyond the safari, Etali offers an exquisite dining experience with a fusion of African flavors and international cuisines. For those seeking relaxation and rejuvenation, the wellness center at Etali offers a serene oasis, where guests can unwind and indulge in luxurious spa treatments, leaving them refreshed and invigorated amidst the tranquil beauty of the African wilderness.

Big 5 Safaris

Safaris at Etali are something special. Every day in the bush brings a new experience. We offer twice daily safaris in modified open Land Cruiser game vehicles, which include a canvas roof for sun protection. Your safari is led by an experienced guide, who shares a wealth of knowledge whilst driving the vehicle, and a “hawk-eye” tracker, who sits on a seat mounted on the hood of the vehicle to help spot animals and their tracks.

Stay in our Luxury Suites

You’ll stay in one of our luxury suites, which were constructed in harmony with nature and were designed to immerse guests in the bush. Watch animals walk to the waterhole on the game paths in front of your deck. Wake up to the dawn chorus of birdlife, and—with a bit of luck—to lions calling or hyenas “laughing.”


Experience cuisine that guests talk about. Meals at Etali feature the high-quality meat that South Africa is known for, including local game meat, with lots of fresh seasonal and organically grown vegetables, fruit and herbs. There is no set menu as the chefs select the best produce to work their magic.

Wellness Centre

The bush relaxes your mind; the Etali Wellness Centre extends that experience to relax your body. Be pampered in the tranquillity of the Wellness Centre or enjoy the sensory pleasure of a massage on your own private suite deck.
