6 Stunning outdoor bath tubs in Africa

Is there anything more decadent than having a luxurious free-standing bath tub to have a relaxing soak with a fabulous view, and if you are lucky, spotting some of the ‘Big Five’ while you unwind?
We’ve found some of the greatest hotels across the African continent, all of which feature incredible bath tubs for a truly relaxing and romantic stay.


Elewana Elsa’s Kopje – Kenya

Romantic bath Elewana Elsa's Kopje, Kenya

Romantic bath

Kenya’s best kept secret, the untamed wilderness of Meru National Park is best explored from its hidden jewel – Elsa’s Kopje. It was made famous by the film ‘Born Free’ and George Adamson’s lions, the lodge is invisible as you approach the kopje.

Each of the 10 individually built cottages are luxurious and we love the three honeymoon suites that come with romantic candlelit baths.
