Etali’s field guides have undergone intensive training and have an in depth knowledge of African flora, fauna, natural history and ecology. The guides are not only sensitive towards the needs of their guests, but also towards the bush and its inhabitants, ensuring that guests receive an ecologically sound and informative experience.
Game drive times are flexible. Spontaneous drives may also go out in response to animal activity near the lodge. If lions roar near the camp during dinner, expect an invitation from your guide to go into the night in search of them.
Etali Safari Lodge Reviews
“My family and I had the most magical stay at Etali. We literally could not find fault. From the accommodation, to the truly magical safari experience. This was undoubtedly the highlight of our trip to South Africa. The service is like no other we have ever experienced and the rangers and all staff were of a calibre that can only be described as perfection. We simply cannot recommend highly enough. A place of such beauty that one has to pinch oneself constantly to be reminded that this is not a dream, but a heavenly reality. We hope to return again and again!” –Doron R
“Everything you could wish for. Great location, fantastic staff and food to die for. The game drives were breathtaking and saw all of the “big five” no problem. Our ranger Evan was excellent,his knowledge and enthusiasm was infectious.” –Jill M
