Hi there! As you may know, Arathusa is in the northern region of the Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve. I would recommend that you combine it with a lodge that shares a totally different game viewing traversing area to Arathusa, so that your game drives at your 2 lodges are not conducted on the same properties. As an example, Elephant Plains is an excellent lodge, offering very competitive rates, but they share a large portion of traversing area with Arathusa, so this combination would not make sense (in my opinion). I assume you are looking for a second lodge that is more or less similarly priced to Arathusa, so I will keep my suggestions to the more affordable lodges. Consider combining Arathusa with Ngala Sagari Lodge in the Timbavati. The Timbavati is easily accessible from the northern region of the Sabi Sands. Alternatively, you can combine Arathusa with a lodge in the southern/western sector of the Sabi Sands (keep in mind that this will require a 2 - 3 hour road transfer, as you have to drive right around the reserve to access the other side of the Sabi Sands), such as Inyati, Nottens or Kirkmans.
