Private Kruger lodges for friends & family

A private Kruger safari villa gives you all of the advantages of a regular lodge without having to share your space with anyone outside of your family and friends. Designed with exclusivity in mind, private lodges and villas typically have their own drivers and trackers (so you set your hours on safari), as well as personal chefs and butlers that will answers at your every beck and call.

Here are a few highly recommended selections in Kruger.
