Glamping in the jungle

Rafiki Safari Lodge is a luxury tented camp in the middle of the jungle. The owners offer many adventurous tours and run various nature conservation projects near the lodge. During your jungle stay, you will get the chance to become part of nature during your stay. Because you’re sleeping in tents, the sounds of the jungle have never been so close to you. Fall asleep with the noises around you and let the birds wake you up in the early morning. A unique and unforgettable experience!

From the lodge, you can go rafting on the Savegre river. You could also go horseback riding, or hiking in the forests around the lodge. If you wish, a professional guide can take you on a birdwatching tour and explain all ins and outs of the jungle during your walk.

A touch of Africa

A touch of Africa

The safari tent you will be sleeping in during your stay at Rafiki is originally from South Africa. The Boshof family moved to Costa Rica in the early nineties, but their South African roots still are visible in the Rafiki Safari Lodge. In the evening you can enjoy a traditional ‘braai’, a South African bbq, in the open air restaurant. A great experience and an unexpected mix of a unique jungle stay in Costa Rica with a South African touch!

The highlight. Alone the road to it you will never forget 🙂 What a domain! Nice owner, good food, well-kept tents. Bats at night in the tent… what an adventure to get there. The only thing that was unfortunate was that we had booked the rafting earlier on the Pacuare, by the way, was super! But there was more to do in Rafiki. Rafting or riding, we finally chose for rafting again, which was very funny, a super nice guide who made it different from our previous rafting.

Then we also went half a day to Manuel Antonio, we still have seen a lot of animals and was not that busy, so nice, especially that you can also swim.

Once you have arrived at Rafiki Safari Lodge, you can not only enjoy the tranquillity and the overwhelming nature around you, but you can also go on an adventure! The lodge offers fantastic tours by kayak and raft. You will be accompanied by an excellent guide and also for a tasty bite and drink. Speaking of snack and drink, the owners of the lodge regularly organize a ‘braai’ for their guests, since they originate from South Africa.
