SAFARI LODGE vs. SAFARI CAMP
This is often a question that we are asked so we thought it would be helpful to offer a little information here.
The primary difference between a lodge and a camp tends to be the size with lodges generally being bigger.
Camps tend to have the presence of canvas somewhere in their design. This certainly doesn’t mean that you are camping, and many camps are very luxurious. Camps are often built in a way that gives you access to incredibly remote and protected areas where strict building regulations have to be adhered to, to ensure that there is low impact on the environment.
