How do you get the best out of your Africa safari tours
? Three words: location, location, location. When you pick where you want to go, it is equally important to pick where you want to stay, because there is no better experience than sipping your morning cuppa while watching elephants making their way down for a drink of water in your backyard – something you can look forward to at the Elephant Valley Lodge in Botswana. Southern Africa and East Africa have an amazing variety of hotels, but their game lodges are the real highlight. Kuzuko Lodge in Greater Addo Elephant National Park lies in a private concession in South Africa’s third largest national park. In Kenya, Lake Nakuru Sopa Lodge sits on the border of Africa’s Great Rift Valley. Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge is located on the crater rim and enjoys unparalleled views across the caldera, while Mara West Camp borders the Masai Mara National Reserve, famous for the annual migration of wildebeest crossing from Serengeti.
