Private bush villas, also known colloquially as ‘Safari Houses’, are taken on an exclusive use basis by one party. These villas in the bush have their own game ranger and private vehicle for your game drives as well as a private chef and full staff complement.
The beauty of this is that you can choose your own game-viewing rhythm which means that bush villas are also perfect for family safaris. This accommodation set-up leads to a much more relaxed and flexible family safari. No constant worrying about noise levels, no self-consciousness about an impromptu ball game on the lawn.
Some safari houses are totally private whilst others are part of a larger camp - but set apart. This means you have the option of enjoying the camp’s facilities - perhaps having a convivial drink at the bar or a massage - or keeping to yourselves. Truly, the best of all worlds.
Where can I find this exclusivity?
In Zambia, Kenya and South Africa we can recommend a number of safari houses – luxurious self contained homesteads which your group of friends or family party take as one unit. The lodge usually comes with its own ranger so that you have a private vehicle for your game drives and a private chef, sometimes even a house-keeper or butler as well. As you can imagine this leads to a relaxed and flexible safari.
- Selection of stunning bush homes & villas in the Eastern Cape, Madikwe, Kruger and Zambia
- Your own ranger means that your safari is tailored to your interests.
- So you can choose your own game-viewing rhythm, heading out early one morning and taking it more relaxed another day
Seamless arrangements"We were often posting on Facebook during our travels and many of our friends were asking who arranged our trip, so don’t be surprised to get a few referrals. Again, thank you so much for your time and effort with our trip! " Ms Tammy
Great Recommendations"I am into the details and ask lots of questions and I got all the info that I needed (and more) very quickly, which enabled my review all of Cedarberg’s recommendations and check for alternatives. I am very pleased to say that I changed none and all of the recommendations were 1st class. " Mr Ian Crispin, UK
I would only want to book through Cedarberg"Thank you so much for booking this experience for us, Mari. Everything was so well organized and went so smoothly, from car rental and driving and hotel directions, to lodge details, inclusions, exclusions, etc. The link you gave us with all the details on the locations we were going to as well as the detailed itinerary and pre-departure information was very helpful. We’re grateful for your efforts and for making this an outstanding experience for us. I have already sent your details to friends in case they’re interested in booking a trip of their own, and now that Tom has seen the beauty of Africa I know I won’t have to convince him to head back there again. I’m dreaming of safari in Namibia next time, and I would only want to book it through Cedarberg. " Mrs Michelle B
