Current research predicts that future travellers will want to spend their vacations in nature with close family and friends, and away from high-density city destinations. The days of the checklist vacation are thought to be over as we see a shift toward travellers taking their time in one place. There are many private, exclusive-use safari houses in Africa offering travellers their own space completely isolated from other guests and with as little staff interaction as desired. Please see our Exclusive Use page for more info.

Known for building beautiful camps in the most remote corners of East Africa, Asilia offers travellers four private homes in game-rich areas, as well as a relaxing beach house on Zanzibar. Each house comes with a private vehicle and guide, as well as a private chef, and daily activities are completely tailored to guest wishes. Whether it’s an all-day game drive, more time with a G&T by the pool or a private Swahili cooking lesson, guests will very much feel they are in a home away from home.

In Tanzania, Jabali Private House in Ruaha National Park: A sophisticated three bedroom retreat in one of Africa’s wildest national parks, Jabali Private House offers the utmost privacy and exclusivity in a wilderness area half the size of Switzerland.

In Kenya, Mara Bush Houses in the Mara: Three fully-catered bush houses in the heart of one of Africa’s most famous protected wildernesses. Mara & Acacia Houses are family friendly with a shared swimming pool and a view over a bustling waterhole and Topi House is perfectly located for drives in the Masai Mara National Reserve.

In Zanzibar, Matemwe Beach House: Escape to a private slice of Zanzibar’s picture-perfect coastline to Matemwe Beach House, which is just a few footsteps from the white sand and tropical waters of Matemwe Beach.

Exclusive use houses are a great way for both families and friends to travel together, giving guests a truly private experience with the ability to tailor your daily safari activities to your needs as a family.
