South Africa has number of super luxurious private houses that could be booked in isolation or a combination throughout the country. These range from the extreme of ‘a millionaire’s playground’ like Leobo Private Reserve in The Waterberg, to smaller, more intimate private villas for two or families in and around The Cape and The Winelands such as Ellerman Villas and Cle de Montagne. And anything in between! See our Family Holiday section.
