Getaway Tips, Ideas and News

South Africa has had a long and cosy history with thatch, dating back to the Cape's early history. The thatch trend eventually found its way all over the country, and thatch remains popular at safari lodges where thatch roofs not only create a naturalistic atmosphere, but are also environmentally friendly. The thatched, hut-shaped rondavel is a familiar sight in South Africa and a structure often seen in holiday resorts. Despite its many charms, though, thatch is not everyone's favourite shelter - some people are just not a match for thatch! Whether you're averse to the insects that sometimes take refuge in thatch, or hypersensitive to thatching, we've compiled a fabulous selection of non-thatch luxury safari accommodation in South Africa.
