- &Beyond – safari lodges.
- Woolworths Food – luxury food.

Spotlight on luxury safari lodges:
A large portion of SA luxury sector revenue comes from top-end safari lodges. SA is home to some of the best safari lodges in Africa – many of these lodges are located in the Sabi Sands, which is part of the Greater Kruger National Park. New World Wealth’s top safari lodge picks for 2021 include (in no particular order):
- Singita Ebony Lodge – Sabi Sands.
- Londolozi – Sabi Sands.
- Ulusaba – Sabi Sands.
- Ngala Tented Camp – Timbavati.
- Lion Sands – Sabi Sands.
- Leopard Hills – Sabi Sands.
- Savanna Lodge – Sabi Sands.
- Bushmans Kloof – Cederberg.
These lodges are especially popular among HNWIs, and they all score highly when it comes to location, views and scenery.
