Private Villa - Simba 1

The Private Villa is a self-contained penthouse in the bush with a secluded driveway. Complete with kitchen, dining room and living area, the tent connects two enormous double bedrooms, both en-suite. There’s a fully stocked bar and fridge and guests can decide the level of service they require - a butler can be present at all times to pour drinks and make coffee as required, or staff will stay in the background to give guests the freedom to help themselves to the amenities. The expansive terrace with private plunge pool provides an ideal viewpoint for wildlife watching during the day and stargazing at night. The main feature of the Private Villa is exclusivity with your own dedicated chef for all meals as well as a private game drive vehicle and guide.
