Three hours drive north of Johannesburg and home to the award winning Observatory Bush Villa – probably the most stunning safari house in Africa not only from an architectural and style perspective but also as a fantastic home for families and small groups. This is truly an amazing place. It is a private property that can be rented on an exclusive basis, with all of the services that you would expect at a luxurious home in the bush. A fantastic location for a family or a group of families, it offers all of the attractions of a game reserve and adventure holiday. The scenery is stunning, the climate is wonderful, the comfort is unmatched

Built with local materials and imaginative design, there are two huge front rooms with floor-to-ceiling glass and equally big bathrooms that look out across the plains, an expansive deck with an infinity pool, a sunken lounge, and a hippo-bone chandelier over the dining table. There is a room that’s a child’s dream, a further guest room, a raised sundowner deck with Jacuzzi and, impressively, the observatory and library which are a circular extension of the house. Yes, there is actually a state of the art observatory. Where else do you get that?

Your schedule is your own. No need to follow anyone else’s program. you say what you want, and the well-trained staff will deliver. A game drive before lunch ? No problem. A helicopter ride over a canyon ? No problem. A picnic on a cliff ? Yessir! A Quad bike ride before breakfast ? Easy. A gala dinner tonight ? You got it !

No way you will ever forget this experience !
