Kingfisher Villa is perfect for your next luxury getaway. Here’s why…

A private villa in one of South Africa’s best wildlife reserves –  luxury safari accommodation doesn’t get much better than that. If you are looking for the location of your next getaway with family, friends, or colleagues, Kingfisher Villa is a winning choice.  

Here are five unbeatable reasons why Kingfisher Villa is perfect for your next safari:  

1. The chance to be with friends and family in a spectacular setting 

After the pandemic, the importance of being with family and friends can’t be overstated. A vacation with loved ones will be treasured for a lifetime.  

At Kingfisher Villa, you can trust that your loved ones will be more than comfortable. The villa’s spectacular spaces (like its five ensuite bedrooms, rim-flow pool, expansive decks with cushioned swinging benches, and entertainment areas that sport floor-to-ceiling views of the Mvubu dam) are ideal for luxurious relaxation.  

In addition, Kingfisher Villa’s dedicated staff members take care of all the details so you can focus on being with your family and friends.  

2. A corner of  Mabula Private Game Reserve all to yourself

At Kingfisher Villa, you can enjoy an authentic, up-close-and-personal wildlife experience in your own 3,500-hectare private section of  Mabula Private Game Reserve. The wildlife is exceptional — the Big Five plus cheetah and the rare wild dog all inhabit the reserve.  

The villa is positioned on the banks of the Mvubu dam, providing incredible views of the surrounding wildlife, including hippos lazing in the dam’s waters.   

3. An authentic safari journey

Our safari guides are there to lead your immersive game drives and bush walks, all possessing unrivalled knowledge of  Mabula Private Game Reserve. We provide the ever-elusive experience of the original safari, reminiscent of Karen Blixen’s Out of Africa. The wildlife experience is intimate, authentic, and uninterrupted by herds of other safari vehicles.  

4. Convenience and independence  

You have full control over your schedule and vacation. Enjoy the freedom to set your mealtimes and decide when to go on game drives, unwind, and everything in between. Kingfisher Villa also offers the convenience of private staff, including a chef who prepares on-demand top-level cuisine in alignment with your unique requirements and preferences. The cherry on top? The villa has its own airstrip, so you can arrive and depart with ease and security. 

5. Prime location

Kingfisher Villa is only a two-and-a-half-hour drive from Johannesburg and an even shorter flight, but this luxury villa in the 12,000-hectare Mabula Private Game Reserve feels far from civilisation. Only peace and that special kind of bush tranquillity await.
