Rafiki Safari Lodge

We invite you to glamp in the heart of the Costa Rican jungle!

Rafiki Safari Lodge is nestled on a 618 acre private reserve on the pristine Savegre River. This UNESCO Biosphere Reserve is only 30 kilometers from Manuel Antonio on the Pacific Coast. Our "Glamping" experience is a perfect addition to your Costa Rica vacation. In the seclusion of the jungle, the opportunities to enjoy your holiday with us are endless. Enjoy whitewater rafting, horseback rides, nature hikes to waterfalls, and world-class birding. You may also choose to relax and utilize the amenities of the lodge itself. Speed down our water slide,  soak in our solar powered hot tub, or unwind with a massage. Join us for an unforgettable experience.


Our luxury safari tents can comfortably sleep from 2 up to families of 5. They offer a camping experience with all of the creature comforts of home so you won't have to "rough it”!
