Good fences make good neighbours, as the idiom goes, and this is probably the sentiment of safari-goers who prefer the assurance that wildlife will be most good-neighbourly when restricted from entering the camp! If this sounds like you, we have some luxury fenced safari camps in South Africa that are enclosed, or partially enclosed, to deter wildlife from entering living areas.

A gorgeous 5-star private safari camp in the Kruger National Park, Jock Safari Lodge is fenced for the peace of mind of guests. So is its family-friendly sister lodge, Fitzpatrick’s Lodge – a 3-room standalone lodge perfect for families.
