Etali Story

Etali Safari Lodge was developed by Koos and Susan Potgieter during 2002 and opened for business early 2003.

Their key strategy when they developed Etali, was to create a Luxury Safari Experience with a strong sense of empathy to nature.

With their love of nature and the wild African bush they created an environment where guests can also experience the same appreciation of the creation they have the privilege of experiencing every day.

Being owners and operators of this haven in the wild, attention to detail is at the forefront of every day planning and operations.
Each guest is special and treated as an individual. The owners have a home at the lodge and have a hands-on involvement with the running of the lodge and enjoy the company of their guests.

All aspects, from sourcing the best food for the guests, maintaining the lodge and assets in a superb condition, recruiting and maintaining the best staff - all of this allow our guest to focus on what they came here for, THE ETALI EXPERIENCE..

Etali has established itself as the place to be when you want to experience the best Africa can offer. Many of our guests are repeat guests and friends of guests. Guests leave as friends of the lodge and it's people. Most guests make Etali their place to reconnect with nature, on a regular basis.
