Private Lodges in South Africa

There can be few forays abroad as fun as taking out a beautiful property in its entirety and packing it full of friends and family.

Private hire doesn't mean self-catering, as all of our suggested properties come complete with chefs, staff and even sometimes your own private safari guide.

Whether you're taking friends away to mark a special occasion, or arranging an extended family reunion, just let us know your requirements and we'll put together a quote to fit the bill. We also specialise in properties in malaria-free safari areas, ideal for those travelling with young children who still want to offer the whole safari experience.

Our choice of private hire properties in South Africa range from luxurious private safari houses and cosy family owned game farms to chic exclusive beach houses and beautiful properties in Cape Town. There are no rigid set weeks or times in which to hire these properties making them ideal to take from a few days up to a week or two, and we can combine them with many other places in South Africa, including non-exclusive hotels and lodges, allowing you to mix and match.

If you are looking at reducing costs, grab another family to come along too and make it an even more affordable holiday. This often works out cheaper than staying in a lodge or hotel and you have the whole place to yourselves. A win-win situation!

Here is a handpicked selection from our portfolio of private properties to rent in South Africa, the majority of which we have personally seen and experienced ourselves. This is purely a taster of some of favourites but please do ask us for more details on some of our other properties that we recommend.
