Avula means open journey, and Avula Safaris is more than a collection of private game reserves. It’s an authentic African hunting experience like none other.

It’s an invitation to get lost. To find yourself. To seek beyond the known and hunt beyond the kill. Avula is more than a destination. It’s the start of a much greater journey for the adventurer in you to adventure true.

‘Avula’ is derived from a traditional African Zulu word meaning ‘open’. Avula Safaris offers you an  open journey – the opportunity to make your experience whatever you want it to be!

An authentic experience like no other

Avula lodges are based in several select locations across the breathtakingly wild and untamed landscape of South Africa, next to fresh rivers, streams, and grassy bushveld across miles of semi-mountainous terrain – unspoiled land tended by honest, hardworking hands over time. It’s a tradition we are committed to continuing every day to ensure it remains for future generations. Reconnect with your instincts as you embrace the abundant wildlife and breathe in the crisp, fresh air. You’ll find it hard to remember the last time you felt this alive!
