Hey explorer, we know your travel type. You want the stylish-but-functional utility vest with a million pockets and the rugged-looking bushwalking boots. And you definitely want the sweet-looking pics for the socials. But face it: Maybe you’re just not the camping, Outback-exploring type you thought you were, and that’s OK. When you stay in a lodge, you can still pretend you are.
If there’s one place that offers a total escape, it’s a lodge. They’re often hidden deep in rainforests or mountains, surrounded by lush greenery. They’re the perfect place to stay during an African safari, or a trip to the hinterland. Like coffee shops and T-shirts, you’ll find lodge accommodation pretty much everywhere. Plus, in addition to the stunning scenery—obviously—you’ll often find uber-comfy beds, classic touches like fireplaces and wood panelling, and amenities like coffee makers for that morning cuppa. Rest assured, even cheap lodge stays will have that perfect mix of creature comforts inside and adventure outside.
Like a great explorer, it’s time to bust out your journal and get ready to record the greatest holiday ever.
