Global villa holiday specialist, Oliver’s Travels – which mostly features villas in Europe and Asia – has expanded into South Africa with new properties in two provinces.
Esiweni Lodge, in the Nambiti Reserve in KwaZulu Natal, is an eco-lodge that is rented exclusively to private groups of up to 15 guests across five suites. The lodge overlooks the Sunday River within the reserve, where cheetahs and rhinos can be spotted.
The lodge offers safari tours twice a day that do not go off-road to protect the reserve’s biodiversity, however animals are still seen close to the vehicle. Activities can be arranged through Oliver’s Travels’ Concierge Team, including massages and excursions into the Drakensberg Mountains.
The three villas in Cape Town are Cape Lesedi, Cape Heaven and Cape Pragtige. Cape Lesedi offers four bedrooms, accommodating eight people, and has a heated outdoor pool and an alfresco dining area with barbecue.
Cape Heaven on Clifton Beach has four bedrooms accommodating up to seven people. The villa has panoramic sea views and features a large pool and sun loungers.
The three-bedroom Cape Pragtige, also on Clifton Beach, features a large outdoor pool and sleeps up to five people.
