Fodor's Expert Review Boulders Lodge

Sabi Sand Game Reserve, Mpumalanga, South Africa Fodor's Choice

Expect traditional Africa at its most luxurious. Terra-cotta polished stone floors blend with cow-skin rugs, hide-covered armchairs, hand-carved tables, and carefully chosen artifacts. From every side there are stunning bushveld views. Luxuriate in a sumptuous suite with leather and wicker armchairs, a zebra-skin ottoman, and desks and tables fashioned from organic wood shapes. A herd of impalas could easily fit into the bathroom, with its claw-foot tub, his-and-her basins, and an indoor and outdoor shower. All doors lead out onto a big wooden deck with a horizon pool, sun loungers, and bushveld views. Request Room 11 or 12, which overlook a waterhole.
