Fun Friday Find: African Game Reserves

Okay, full disclosure here. I just did a big no-no! I came upon or should I say I stumbled upon (using a website that promotes over the top, luxury, African game reserve holidays. Have you heard of "glamping" (glamorous +camping, you know with hair dryers and and wine refrigerators and such)  well, these places make "glamping" look like you're really roughing it.

Check them out!

My big no-no is that I practically copied every picture from the site. I was just going to use one or two but then they just kept getting better and I feel a sense of duty. I absolutely must share these beautiful "camp sites" and "lodges"with my readers ;)

Perhaps if one of my readers books at holiday here they will feel so appreciative that I discovered it for them that they might invite me to go along! It could happen!

All of the previous photos are from the Singita (meaning place of miracles-you think!) Game Reseve in Africa.

If you would like to see more, there are a few pics that I haven't shown you. Follow the link HERE!

I hope you have a great Fourth of July Weekend! 
Be Safe :)


  1. Ah! This post has made me homesick! I am dying to do one of these 'glamping' adventures! My sister works in hospitality in South Africa and gets to wake up to the sound of lions roaring all the time! (Can you hear the jealousy in my tone??) The last pic is my favourite!

  2. WOW! Those camp sites and lodges are out of this world!


  3. OMG. If this is camping, then sign me up!
    I'd love to be able to do this someday :)

  4. Stunning. Now this is the most civilized way I've seen to go camping. I really don't think I'd want to go home.
