Standard Suite

Etali Safari Lodge offers 8 luxurious air-conditioned suites, generously spaced out for total privacy. Rooms are stylishly decorated with a mix of cool and earthy colours to create a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. Each suite is also indulgently equipped with an outdoor whirlpool, partner bath and refreshing outdoor shower.


Etali offers superb game-viewing on safari drives in the early morning and late afternoon with knowledgeable guides, as well as guided walking safaris.

In the evening, relax beneath a twinkling sky for some spectacular stargazing.

Work-out in the well-equipped Etali Wellness Centre's gym or head to the Etali Wellspa for a traditional massage or body wrap.


Etali's cuisine is a contemporary fusion of traditional African flavours with an Asian twist. Meals are light and healthy with lots of fresh seasonal and organically grown vegetables, fruit and herbs. There is no set menu as the chef extraordinaire selects only the best local produce daily to work his magic. Etali house wines are supplied by Glenwood Estate. Etali also offers traditional South African dinners in the stone built 'lesaka' kraal close to the waterhole. Bush breakfasts and dinners are also available on request.

What stood out for us? African hospitality - everywhere we went we were so warmly received. The smiles, jokes, personal touch and attention to detail we received in all our camps/lodges was memorable. Etali, Stanley and Camp Moremi - we enjoyed ourse lves at all three places. The accommodation you arranged for us everywhere was great and suited us as a family.
