BoutiqueYour game drives are in the same parks available to everyone. However, the Boutique Safaris use sophisticated and fashionable lodges with a minimum amount of guests. We choose lodges that have 9 to 20 rooms where your living and dining experiences are elevated. The smaller sites will allow for more one on one with the local staff. Please note: The smaller boutique camps can fill up quicker so please plan accordingly.
