The Safari Lodges in Africa vary dramatically in size and style from one country to another. Some lodges can accommodate large numbers of people with some properties having 10 -15 cottages. These lodges usually have complete facilities such as spar, sauna, laundry services, conference rooms, business center and swimming pools. Most of these lodges are located in or outside national parks and reserves. Safari lodges are fully permanent accommodation built out of stone, wood, thatch, bricks, mortar or a combination of all.
