Private Safari Houses

With a private bush homestead or safari house, you can choose your own game-viewing rhythm, heading out early one morning and taking it relaxed the next...

Overview

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.

Private Safari Villas

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.

 

Highlights

  • 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

Trip went very smoothly

"Very pleased with service received from Cedarberg – queries adequately answered, friendly + helpful staff (it helped me that there was a UK tel number to call), documents sent were clear and comprehensive." Mrs Johnn, USA

Special memories

"I would like to thank you for the very full and comprehensive travel documents you put together for us – it made our trip so easy! The organisation was perfect and it was so helpful to have contact names for our hosts along the way! Our trip has certainly wetted our appetite for more holidays farther from home and other parts is SA. I have no doubt we’ll be returning one day! My overriding memory though is of the friendly people !”" Mr Mo Hemsley, UK

Exceeded all expectations

"Cedarberg was professional, responsive, and personable. All flights, all transfers, all accommodation, all activities, and the safari itself went exactly to plan. The experience, end-to-end, exceeded all expectations." Mr Michael Barnard

Couldn’t have been happier…

"Cedarberg and specifically our specialist Peter, have been excellent. Really communicative and just very on the ball. From the planning and payment, all the way through to arriving back home. The transfers, hotels, everything was spot on. Couldn’t have been happier with how our honeymoon went." Mr Clark Hoy, UK

Your prices better than the bigger companies

"Brian came home with your attractive brochure and we started looking at possibilities. We both thought Cedarberg would be too expensive for us but were pleasantly surprised to find your prices better than the bigger companies. The itinerary you gave us went totally to plan. All our airport pickups and transfers went smoothly and local drivers were friendly and informative. We also appreciated all the phone conversations and help you gave at Cedarberg before we went and were delighted with the program you put together for us." Dale Family, UK

Tailor make it all to suit

"Peter got it from the start of my gabbled explanation of reason for trip and abnormal itinerary. He pieced it all together and I always felt confident, even before the trip." Mr & Mrs Leake, UK
