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
Great to deal with"Cedarberg were really great to deal with. The Drakensberg mountains were spectacular. We most enjoyed Victoria Falls that literally took your breath away. The river boat cruises at Livingstone were well worth it. Also getting so close to the animals at Umlani in the Timbavati, even the lions and leopards. " Mr Martin Butler, UK
Cedarberg always create amazing holidays"Cedarberg do not fail to deliver they always create amazing holidays and we can not fault. We’ve used Cedarberg 5 times and keep going back for more African experiences Excellent. Amazing as always, as we always seem to test you guys with snow, weddings & having to change destination. You never fail to give us the best. " Mrs Alexei Howell, 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
