Perfect for family groups, group of friends or those looking for ultimate privacy. For those discerning guests who want the same level of service as they would get at a safari camp, but wish to have the privacy of their own villa.
Most are on the grounds of a safari lodge or within a private wildlife conservancy, allowing for game viewing activities. Some have a full host of additional activities depending on their setting – such as horse-riding, white water rafting, camel safaris, canoeing and cultural activities, with snorkeling and water sports near the ocean.
All services of the safari lodge including the spa are available for guests of the private safari villa. Many were originally built as a country retreats for their owner, as well as lords and royalty, and now have been opened up as sole use villas. For a two-week safari, generally one-two nights are spent in the main city, then three-five nights in a combination of two or three different safari and/or beach locations. All itineraries are custom designed around the individual preferences of the group.
No two journeys are alike.
