We offer luxury villas in South Africa, as well as a select few in Malawi & Mozambique. As in Cape Town, they range from the sublimely luxurious, to family friendly, to seaside retreats.
These villas, cottages or two-bedroom suites are spacious and comfortable rather than architectural icons. The key factor is that your family will feel relaxed here. These are not modest ‘self-catering apartments” either. They offer a home away from home – with the level of luxury that suits your family. Options range from 2 to 4 bedrooms, ideal for larger family groups. Or two families travelling together.
Examples include Hawksmoor House, Belvidere Manor, Hog Hollow Villa, Three Trees Lodge at Spionkop.

Examples include La Residence Villas, Morukuru Ocean House, Bushmans Kloof Koro Lodge or Delaire Graaff.

These villas are right at the ocean for that carefree coastal vibe. They’re right on the ocean so that you don’t need to get into your car to enjoy the beach. Some are in South Africa. But we’ve also included some options in Mozambique and Malawi.

You delivered us a near perfect experience"We had a wonderful trip largely thanks Cedarberg Travel. THANK YOU!! Thank you again Mari. We had a trip packed with fun, laughter, wildlife and bucket showers, all at a relaxed pace which made us all believe we had a real holiday, even if it started at 5.am every morning! I believe that you gave us 3 wonderful lodges ( arguably best we have visited in the African continent all with their special touch and ambiance, thank you.) Once again, another “Mari masterpiece”. You delivered us a near perfect experience, thank you again Mari. " Mr Dennis Lee
Vacation of a lifetime"Milandi and the Cedarberg team not only planned each detail but also gave us helpful tips in advance to help us prepare for our holiday. Once in SA, there was never a need to contact Cedarberg because each day’s activities went off without a hitch " Mr & Mrs La Doe, USA
As always an excellent itinerary"Choices of lodges was perfect. Everything went extraordinarily smoothly. As always an excellent itinerary, great local agent/guide/driver and good trip notes. Good to hear from Milandi personally when a local problem caused a change in the itinerary during the trip. " Mr Tim Flesher, UK
