Private & Exclusive African Holidays

Perhaps the ultimate way to enjoy Africa’s city, bush and beach villas is as part of private vacation packages. Not only is your accommodation private but so are all the other aspects of your unforgettable journey: your charter plane to fly between airports or camps, your guide to help you find that elusive leopard, your vehicle so you always have the best seat and best view, and all your opt-in activities, too, such as cultural tours, helicopter flips, bush picnics and even wine tastings.

Tailor-made with you and your travel companions in mind – do you have young children or older parents coming along, for example – our luxury, all-inclusive holidays will accommodate you in villas with panoramic views, private swimming pools, sunny gardens and all the little extras, like 24/7 security, parking, Jacuzzis and fully equipped gourmet kitchens. Not to mention that each villa is serviced by a team of dedicated staff – like chefs, housekeepers, butlers and even nannies and childminders.

And it’s not only Cape Town in South Africa that has incredible beach and city villas: there are now exclusive African safari villas, too. Ideal for families, or those who prefer brick and mortar to canvas and mesh, safari villas have the same tantalising benefits as their metropolitan cousins: privacy, carefree routines and a schedule decided by you.

After ‘roughing it’ on safari, you can recalibrate before heading home with a few days at a beach villa on a tropical island. The Seychelles, Mozambique and Mauritius are all over picture-perfect beach vistas with powder-soft sands, azure warm waters and some of the best diving in the world.

It all adds up to a phenomenal vacation: a complete retreat for you and your family, with every day seamlessly taken care of. It’s the ultimate way to experience ‘Hakuna Matata’ (no worries) for real…
