Sanctuary Retreats

The Sanctuary Retreats portfolio of luxury safari lodges and expedition ships brings the boutique experience to guests with the added promise of authenticity. Located in some of the most stunning locations in the world, each property is completely individual in its design and operated around the philosophy of “Luxury, naturally."

Sanctuary Retreats was born in Africa with the first of our Sanctuary Lodges, Sanctuary Olonana, in Kenya in 1999. We now own and operate additional lodges and camps in Zambia, Botswana, Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda and our newest destination, South Africa. Building on our heritage of luxury adventure travel, we also manage and run six spectacular expedition cruise ships in some of the most amazing cultural and ecological sites in the world. Our cruises explore epic rivers - the Yangtze in China, the Nile in Egypt and the Irrawaddy in Myanmar.
