Once you’ve fallen in love with the bush it’s difficult to resist its lure, so we’ve found a lodge that helps relieve the effects of the persistent ‘safari bug’. Set within the malaria-free and Big Five-packed Kwandwe Game Reserve, the immaculate Ecca Lodge is a million miles away from the typical khaki camp that most are used to. Ecca Lodge, where funk meets futuristic farmhouse, is emblazoned with Warhol-like prints, magnificent retro light fittings and roofs that resemble pagodas and offers a safari with attitude - which is why we just love this outlandish but entirely homely take on a scenic safari lodge.
Best for: Family-friendly, Lodge, Malaria-free, Wildlife & Nature
