Camps & Lodges

Rothschild Safaris does not own individual African Safari camps in Africa; instead, we have contracts at every lodge allowing flexibility and more importantly, variety for your individual taste. Each year, our travel designers go on their own African safaris to the camps to personally experience the accommodations, activities, the best seasons for game viewing, meals and service. Our recommendations for you are based on expert and first hand experience!
