For a more personal and exclusive experience, consider taking a private safari or beach house, but have the service of a lodge.

The trend for renting your own private house in Africa is on the up. With your own staff, the activities and complete flexibility are centred around your own time and needs, it takes the hassle out of the holiday, and you can enjoy time on your own terms.

We work closely with a range of beautiful handpicked houses - from the cosy and characterful, to the slick and glamorous safari and beach houses in amazing locations.
