4 Exclusive Luxury Kruger Safari Villas for Hire

There’s certainly a place in this world for private and exclusive safari experiences. Discerning guests and small groups of travellers who have little desire to mix with others; and who want a safari experience tailored to their needs, should think about booking out one of these luxury Kruger safari villas. Hiring out a villa is a wise choice for celebrities who want to fly under the radar, families that want quality time together, celebrations and private parties; groups wanting control of their experience. Most of the luxury Kruger safari villas come with bush walks, game drives during peak predator hours, private chefs, boma dinners and sundowners. Depending on the villa, you will no doubt have various options and add-ons for your unique elite safari sojourn.

Client Feedback : Okavango Delta and Savute

Janelle’s clients loved their safari experience in Botswana. Janelle ensured that her clients stayed in 2 different areas in the awe-inspiring Okavango Delta waterways, so that they could maximise their water safari experience. She added on a trip to the  fascinating Savute region in the Chobe National Park for an incredible land based safari experience.  Guests stayed in Savute, Xugana Island Lodge on the Xugana Lagoon and Camp Xakanaxa on the banks of the Khwai River. Here is their feedback : Dear Janelle, our trip was genius, we had such a great time in Botswana! We saw 4 Leopards in Savute, 30 Lions with cups, and also Wild dogs in Xaxanaka, unbelievable! The Helicopter flight was amazing, Xugana Island impressed us really a lot, specially the friendliness of the staff there. But our favourite Lodge was Savute – Tao our Guide was so funny and really experienced. He gave us a pleasant time there. Dennis and Action are excellent hosts, all the team there is so lovely, we will be back for sure – in combination with Kalahari stay. Thanks for choosing the right tour for us and for your good advises! We keep in touch for our next Africa tour! Happy Greetings...

Client Feedback : Hwange and Victoria Falls

Michelle organised a Zimbabwe safari for her guests, ensuring they experienced the magnificence of Victoria Falls and the world-renown wildlife-rich Hwange National Park Hwange is a vast area with contrasting landscapes, which is why Michelle selected two lodges in very different landscapes. Michelle’s guests stayed at Ilala Lodge in Victoria Falls, a lodge that offers a private lodge experience and a wealth of activity options at the falls. In Hwange National Park, Michelle selected Deteema Springs, which is located on a rocky rise overlooking permanent water springs. The second choice of camp is Verney’s Camp, which is located on a large open floodplain. Here is the feedback :  Hi Michelle We have an amazing time in Zimbabwe thank you. Just settling back into real life that has been difficult! We loved all 3 places we stayed and found them all quite different to each other. Ilala offered a lovely touch of luxury and everyone there was welcoming and helpful. Our room was perfect and we could see warthogs and the spray from Victoria Falls from the balcony. Deteema was a very cute little safari camp. We really felt like part of their little family and they went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. Our first night we had the whole camp to ourselves and they put on a special romantic honeymoon meal for us. The first morning we were greeted with lion cubs in the camp – an amazing experience. It was probably our favourite camp for the atmosphere and friendliness. Everything was so easy and we didn’t have to think about a thing. We very much enjoyed the company of the other guests that were travelling in couples, but a large group of 10 arrived and they changed the atmosphere quite a lot – the group were quite overpowering in such a little camp so they may want to consider restricting the group sizes. For us it didn’t ruin the experience as we have such a wonderful private first evening, but their were certainly less animals around camp when the big group arrived. Verney’s was much bigger and although everyone was friendly, it was run more like a hotel than Deteema so the feel was luxurious but different. They have the advantage in terms of game viewing due to their location as we saw a lot more at this camp than at Deteema – so our favourite for animals! Our tent was also amazing – I think the whole of Deteema Springs camp could fit inside our own tent at Verney’s! We think the combination of all three was good, and probably...

Client Feedback : Romance at Simbavati Hilltop

Liselle’s clients wanted to do something ultra-special for their wedding anniversary, so came to Liselle for suggestions. Knowing just the place, Liselle quickly jumped into action and booked the loved-up couple a safari to Simbavati Hilltop. A romantic paradise in the heart of the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve. Hilltop is perfect for honeymoons and anniversaries. Here is her client feedback :  Hi Liselle, I hope you are doing well. I just wanted to let you know my husband and I returned from South Africa yesterday. Thanks so much for the recommendation for Simbavati Hilltop Lodge – it was fantastic! We saw so many fascinating animal interactions thanks to our awesome guide and tracker and couldn’t get over how often we were fed (and how delicious everything was). We also loved our accommodations. They also recognized our wedding anniversary with flower petals and candles in our tent one night and a romantic dinner which was a very special surprise. We just wished we could have stayed longer! Thanks again!...
