Rafiki is a wilderness luxury tent camp and conservation project focusing on adventurous sustainable tourism. The lodge is nestled on 842 acres of pristine jungle along the Savegre River, 30 km south of Quepos and Manuel Antonio in Costa Rica.


The lodge is located on a natural plateau with an spectacular view of the pristine mountains nearby. The Lodge serves as the restaurant, bar and tour center. From here you will start all of your safaris, while being able to enjoy the pool and water slide and experience some amazing birding.


Their luxury Safari tents are set atop hardwood decks, each with rocking chairs, so you can sit back and admire the view in privacy. Imported from South africa, the tent's design lets you experience nature up close while keeping the insects at bay. Each unit features its own modern, complete bathroom. Whether you are on your honeymoon, want to bring a group of friends and family, or business associates, Rafiki provides the perfect atmosphere. While their property is a nature retreat... it is hardly roughing it!



The Lekker Bar and Braai

Treat yourself to a delicious South African Braai (BBQ) cooked on their grill, accompanied by side dishes prepared by our professio-local chef. Enjoy a tasty beverage from the bar while being enchanted by the natural beauty that Rafiki has to offer!



Luxury Safari Tents

The spacious luxury tents, comfortably sleep up to four people. The large windows bring the sounds and the smells of the forest in, while the canvas walls keep the creepies and the elements out. Enjoy the magnificent views from your private porch! Their showers are fire heated to take the chill out of the spring water.



Let the Boshoff family treat you to a South African "braai" (barbeque) or enjoy other fabulous cuisine prepared by our resident chef. Their food, hospitality, and accommodations are unparalleled. Rafiki's pristine location and their "little touch of Africa" will ensure that you have an unforgettable experience.


Guests can enjoy a wide variety of activities such as whitewater rafting, horseback riding to waterfalls, hiking, and world-class birding. You don't need to be an avid birder or into eco tourism to enjoy their truly unique accommodations and natural beauty.
