The Lodge epitomises gracious country living with views across vineyards and onto the mountains.

La Clé Lodge appeals to a traveller who appreciates art, design, cuisine, country living and being in a ‘home’ rather than a hotel.

Saseka feels very much like a shining jewel in the Thornybush crown. Visionary designers have created a lodge that has a strikingly unique layout and finds a superb balance between cutting-edge design, classical style and feeling connected to the outside environment. The main area has a large, tiered deck with a broad view of the riverbed and a cleverly designed roof that mimics the dappled light of a tree canopy. Attention to detail is present wherever you look, a great example of this is the fabric of the interior canvas, designed exclusively for Saseka, with prints from the herbarium in Pretoria of all the region’s plants. The intelligent lighting of the tented suites is also an impressive feature. The suites allow the sounds of the bush to filter in to give you a truly immersed safari experience.

Useful things to know before you embark on this amazing journey
All year round is good for Victoria Falls and the Greater Kruger National Park areas although for Cape Town, the main rainy season falls over the Winter months which is opposite to the destinations in the rest of the itinerary. June and July are considered the wettest months in Cape Town. Victoria Falls can be very humid in October and the main rainy season for both Victoria Falls and Greater Kruger Park falls between November and February. This period however, which is known as the “Green Season”, is also a wonderful time to visit and is the main birding season where migratory species can also be seen. In the Victoria Falls area, the ‘Low Water’ period runs between August and January and is at its lowest between November and early December. The best views of the falls at this time will be Devil’s Cataract which is permanent and on the Zimbabwean side of Victoria Falls.
Only the safari and Victoria falls are considered malaria areas and we advise the use of anti-malarial prophylactics year-round. Consult your travel doctor for advice at least three weeks before departure to Africa.
Cape Town is far from being “just” a city destination and one of the many reasons that travelers choose to visit Cape Town is its abundance of scenic beauty and natural attractions. The city itself is situated between the Atlantic Ocean and Table Mountain, one of the world’s Seven Wonders of Nature, however, attractions such as the scenic Cape Winelands, Cape Town’s numerous white sandy beaches, the Cape Peninsula and activities such as whale watching and shark diving, are all found within a 2 hour radius of Cape Town. In addition, Cape Town is also considered South Africa’s culinary capital and is a veritable foodie paradise.
The Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve is Southern Africa’s premier private safari destination and synonymous with frequent sightings of the elusive leopard. The reserve is a “Big 5” reserve however and so all the usual animals such elephant and rhino will be seen too but we mention leopards as these magnificent creatures are usually shy and rarely seem.
Total luxury with uninterupted views of either ocean or mountain
