Rafiki Safari Lodge is a wilderness luxury tent camp and conservation project focusing on adventurous sustainable tourism. The lodge is nestled on 842 acres of pristine jungle along the Savegre River, 30 km south of Quepos and Manuel Antonio in Costa Rica.
The luxury Safari tents are set atop hardwood decks, each with rocking chairs, so you can sit back and admire the view in privacy. Imported from South Africa, the tent’s design let you experience nature up close. They comfortably sleep up to four people. The large windows bring the sounds and the smells of the forest in, while the canvas walls keep the insects out. Each tent features its own modern, complete bathroom, which are fire heated to take the chill out of the spring water.
Guests can enjoy a wide variety of activities such as whitewater rafting, horseback riding to waterfalls, hiking, and world-class birding. You don’t need to be an avid birder or into eco tourism to enjoy our truly unique accommodations and natural beauty.
The hotel has a lodge, nested on a natural plateau with ten luxury tents situated near by, which serves as the restaurant, bar and tour center. From here you will start all of your safaris, while being able to enjoy the pool and water slide and some amazing birding.
Let Lekker Bar and Braai treat yourself to a delicious South African Braai (BBQ) cooked on our grill, accompanied by side dishes prepared by our professional-local chef. Enjoy a tasty beverage from the bar while being enchanted by the natural beauty that Rafiki Safari Lodge has to offer!
Our food, hospitality, and accommodations are unparalleled. Rafiki’s pristine location and our “little touch of Africa” will ensure that you have an unforgettable experience.
