Why Fathala Lodge is the Ultimate Romantic Getaway…

“Couples that travel together, stay together.”

We all need time away from our busy day-to-day lives. Slow down, less internet – more eye contact. Break away from work, kids and other responsibilities, and just be with each other.

And that is exactly what Fathala Lodge offers. This lodge strives for its peace and quiet, to give you the feeling of escape and tranquility. As soon as you arrive in our open air lodge, you will feel relaxed. No music, no internet – just the incredible sound of nature. We are all so used to being connected to the online world that we lose connection with what is right in front of us – our loved ones.

Our Luxury Tented Suites are in the shadows of the majestic African mahogany trees. Each of the tents is decorated in a romantic African colonial theme, keeping the calm and peaceful aura. A queen size bed, free-standing bath and twin basins just add to serene setting.|

The Luxury Mangrove Scenic Trip is always our recommendation to couples. Just picture this – a boat trip with your loved one, glass of wine in your hand and being purely captivated by the enormity of the Delta Saloum Mangroves. Having shared this experience together, it becomes an everlasting treasure engraved in your both of your hearts and minds.

Then experience something that will get your adrenaline pumping. The Lion Encounter is truly a once in a lifetime experience, and a must-do together! This activity gives you the opportunity to join our majestic lions by foot, and an amazing way to see the behavior of this beautiful species. With lots of photo opportunities, you can show your friends and family back home your encounter with the King of the Jungle.

When you aren’t on an activity at Fathala, spend some time together by the swimming pool and share a bottle of champagne or cocktail from our Baobab Bar. Enjoy the wildlife that comes to the waterhole in front of the lodge. Or even book a couple’s massage in the privacy of your own room.

So come reconnect, slow down and enjoy the Fathala experience.
