Top 10 baths with a view

Africa's greatest bathtubs

A bathroom might not be top of your list when choosing your safari destination, but our list of Africa’s top baths with a view is here to change that. There’s nothing quite like sinking into sudsy tub for a soak after a day of game drives (with a glass of bubbles, naturally). From wildlife-spotted plains, glorious savannahs stretching as far as the eye can see and even crashing ocean waves, these are our top 10 baths with a view.

1. Okahirongo Elephant Lodge, Namibia

Ever wanted to enjoy an al-fresco batch, overlooking the oldest desert in the world? Well you can. Sink into the suds as dusk falls and watch a billion twinkling stars emerge over the never-ending desert landscape. Magical.

2. Babylonstoren, South Africa

After a long day of wine-tasting and gourmet-lunching, what could be better than coming back to your lovingly-restored cottage, flopping straight into the bath overlooking the 8 acres of enchanting gardens at Babylonstoren? Not much, we think…

4. The Silo, Cape Town

The Silo is a mindblower itself but the baths are taking it to a whole new level. Enjoy the unobstructed view of Lions Head, Table Mountain or the harbour through the kaleidoscopic windows of this new architectural lankmark of South Africa.

5. Londolozi Granite Suites, South Africa

Another stunner worth mentioning when you talk about baths with a view is Londolozi Granite Suites in Kruger National Park. Not only do the suites have some of the best bathtubs in the whole of Africa, they each come with a private heated swimming pool. To swim or to bath? It is a difficult toss-up.

6. Maia Luxury Resort & Spa, Seychelles

To call the enormous tubs at Maia simply ‘baths’ would be unkind; the sunken, outdoor wonder are big enough to get lost in. Enjoy a long soak in the scented water, gazing over the powdery sands of Anse Louis beach.

7. Madikwe Hills Private Game Lodge, South Africa

Nestled between boulders and age-old Tamboti trees, the only thing disturbing your perfect private bubble bath in the Madikwe Reserve will be some ellies strolling along (if you get lucky).

9. Ellerman House, Cape Town

Hovering high above the Atlantic Ocean, the views from just about every corner of Ellerman House are jaw-droppingly brilliant, but looking at them from the bathtub is a real treat. Time your soak with nightfall, and watch as the sun sinks below the endless deep-blue horizon.

10. Soroi Serengeti Lodge, Tanzania

Among all the beautiful baths with a view, we have to give some credit to this open air shower overlooking the Serengeti. Plan your trip May to July and you might just catch the herds of the Great Migration while showering.
