Villas for families and Exclusive Use Safari Lodges in AfricaIn certain key destinations in Africa, certain types of accommodation has been developed to cater for small groups and large family groups on a private basis. Exclusive use safari lodges and private family villas have come to the fore.
Typically, this accommodation is of the more exclusive nature and is ideally suited to friends and family travelling together in groups of 6 to 12 persons. These villas and safari lodges are operated on the same basis as the room counterparts, but there is the added advantage of total privacy and flexibility within your personal group. Ironically,as a group travelling together, it often works out more affordable taking group accommodation on a private basis versus individual rooms.
Private safari lodge options vary immensely, and we are privy to some of the finest exclusive use loges in the Kruger National Park, Madikwe, Lower Zambezi, Serengeti and Masai Mara. In exclusive use safari lodges, guests are allocated a private chef (who often customises your menu), private use safari guides and a vehicle - you can dictate the length and timings of your safari excursions without the need to keep to a schedule), private pools and many other exclusive advantages.
Private family villas available in Cape Town and the Cape Winelands are often exceptional homes in the finest locations. It is worth noting that over the busy Christmas season time in Cape Town, villas are rented out far in advance and owners often insist on a one to two week minimum rental for prime sites Other beach villas are available in Mozambique, Zanzibar and further afield.
