Have you ever dreamed of owning a farm in Africa? Do the next best thing ... rent one!
Staying in a lodge or camp is not necessarily for everyone, which is why renting a safari house has really taken off. It appeals to those who search for a more personal and sometimes more authentic experience. Over the last few years, we have seen an increase and demand for this style of accommodation, in particular with families, as parents are now wanting to travel with their children and share the same experience. It means you are able to be all under one roof, and have space for the children to run freely without disturbing other guests.
These houses come in all shapes and sizes. From expansive pads catering to house parties of up to 12 guests, situated on their own private game reserve or in a national park, complete with a medley of staff catering to your every whim, to the simpler and more homely and rustic farm houses. More and more of the lodges are offering the option to book out a private house on the reserve, away from the ‘main lodge’, giving privacy and exclusivity. You have your own guide and safari vehicle, private chef and flexibility as the safari
experience is tailored to your needs. This works well for those that want to be by themselves, but not in the middle of no-where.
So why not ring the changes this year and swop that European villa for a game farm in South Africa or the ski chalet for a safari house on the Laikipia Plateau or the Mara plains of Kenya.
Ideal for families of all ages. And also this style of accommodation is perfect for big, multi- generational family celebrations ranging from grandparents to grandchildren.
