Kruger Park’s myriad of stunning lodges make it the most luxurious safari park in the world, and also one of the best. The dry plains camouflage lions perfectly, so watching this apex beast making a kill is very much on the agenda.

What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

That you can find such opulent lodges in such a wild place almost defies belief.

Your guides will amaze you time and again as they spot animals completely hidden from your inexperienced eyes. Have no fear, they will keep you safe – but do keep your eyes open!

Australia's 'Top End' wilderness region around the Kakadu National Park is a simply stunning wetland region, with miles of beautiful winding rivers, deciduous forests and sunny grasslands as far as the eye can see.

The scale of the outback wilderness is difficult for modern urbanites to comprehend. With mile after mile of undisturbed natural beauty, it really is just you and a lazy crocodile or two, staring at the sun glinting off the serene scenery. You can fly in and out in minutes, but we recommend spending time travelling overland. Hour after hour of nature, with nowhere to be but here and now, is truly liberating.
