We discovered Rafiki Safari Lodge as we were wandering off the beaten path from the coast. We loved the setting and decided to go there the following year. We were there in February and loved it. Great setting in a very comfortable safari tent with...More
We were lucky to spend several days birding, hiking, and white water rafting in the jungle. The Boshoff family and the staff were wonderful, and it was a treat to get to learn about the lodge and the area from them.
Three of us (aged 8, 18, and 50) stayed in Tent 8. Prior to our trip, I was a bit nervous about staying at Rafiki in a tent, but it turned out to be the best part of our 8 days in Costa Rica. The...More

Wow! It's taken far too long to finally write a review, but this was the most fabulous place we have been to as a family.
I'll never forget the view as we arrived - it made the extremely long journey pale into insignificance.

A travel agent recommended this location for myself and two teens (18/16) for a couple nights. Two questions - will it be hot/humid in July considering the lack of AC? Are the tents buggy? (can you tell I'm not really much of a campler?) Also, what did you do to entertain yourself at night? My kids may go into shock with no TV. Is the Wi-Fi as bad as some claim? I'd be fine without either, but I dont' want to hear endless whining. Thanks!

The Savegre Valley brings cool breezes from over 12,000 feet down to the camp, so it is quite pleasant at night. Rafiki is not really all that buggy. You will find the beaches in the country to have more bugs. We (unfortunetaly in my opinion) have improved the internet at the lodge. You don't have to tell your kids, but yes there is good quality wifi. I prefer to see family play cards, engage in conversation with other families, sit in the hot tub and watch the stars, or go down the slide at night (yeooow!).Let me know if you have any other questions!
