Known as the world in one country, South Africa is as varied as it is scenic and its wide range of accommodation reflects this very diversity. Indeed, South Africa accommodation includes everything from five-star hotels and luxury private villas to family-friendly safari lodges and self-catering guest houses. Both quality and service are comparable to anything you'd find in Europe or North America.

Luxury boutique hotels and guest houses are set in prime positions in the vibrant cities of Johannesburg and Cape Town as well as all along the Garden Route and the country's most famous coastlines. South Africa's top national parks and game reserves such as the Kruger Park and its private reserves have accommodation options ranging from child-friendly lodges to exclusive tented camps while KwaZulu-Natal's scenic countryside has hidden gems well known for their fine cuisine and indulgent service. We've also selected safari accommodation in malaria-free Big 5 reserves - perfect for family getaways.

There's certainly a lot to choose from but we've made your decision a lot easier with our handpicked selection of the very best accommodation in South Africa. If you can't find what you're looking for however, one of our experienced African Safari Experts will happily recommend the ideal hotel, lodge or guest house to suit your requirements.
