You are cocooned in luxury, inspiration and grace. There are twelve suites only, in addition to the Amber Suite.

The Amber Presidential Suite is generous beyond belief in its dimensions and boasts its own exercise room, steam room, study and kitchen. It captures art and luxury in one unique experience. The boma, its walls sculpted from roots and built up piece by piece, captures the drama of an African night and embraces the power of the wilderness. You can renew yourself in this place. The Amani Spa at Earth Lodge and Earth Lodge Gym. Massages, natural therapies or a classic spa. A secluded library. Meditation garden. Everything has been created for your indulgence. Your own armed and knowledgeable Game Ranger and Shangaan Tracker will take you deep into the bushveld by open safari vehicle or on foot.
