Time together

Life is busy and time flies by too fast. Before you know it, you are thinking “Where has the year gone?” Slow down a little and reignite a true, face to face, connection with family and friends with a private getaway surrounded by nothing but the African bush, open skies and time to enjoy it all together. Away from cumbersome laptops, demanding cellphones and noisy traffic – find quite landscapes, open vistas and enchanting wildlife experiences. Our private villas are made just for this. Time. Families or small groups of friends have their choice of three gracious sole-use safari villas, Fort House, Uplands Homestead and Melton Manor. With private pools, spacious living areas and expansive views across the reserve, not to mention a full complement of staff discreetly on hand to ensure everything is taken care of, it is truly a haven for time together.  Read More
