Unusual Places in South Africa to Sleep …



Break away from the ordinary and take a walk on the wild side by booking a stay in an unusual place. Luxury Day Trips can arrange flights and accommodation for you at a variety of avant-garde bush and beach retreats, quirky city hotels, pondoks and palaces around the southern hemisphere.

  • Sleep under a starlit canopy, known as Kingston Treehouse at the Lion Sands Reserve in Sabi Sand Reserve. The glass and wood treehouse is entirely open to the elements.
  • Enjoy an overnight stay in an impressive and unique cave suite in the Kagga Kamma Nature Reserve in Cederberg.
  • Escape to The Outpost, a luxurious mountain hideaway with Zen architecture, which offers 180 degree views of the Limpopo River and as far as Mozambique.
  • Stay in a quirky Old Mac Daddy Airstream trailer beneath the pine-clad slopes of Elgin in the Overberg. The hotel combines stylish country lodge with nostalgic caravan park to bring a truly imaginative experience.
  • !Xaus Lodge in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park lies in the arid expanse which is the Kalahari. Owned by the Khomani Bushmen and Mier communities, the lodge gives you a first hand experience of the inhabitants of this strangely beautiful area – the Bushmen and their fascinating stories and rituals.
  • Book a space in a sea facing cabin aboard the Santos Express, which permanently remains on Santos Beach in Mossel Bay.
  • Step back into history by staying in a corbelled house in the Karoo. Built in the 1800’s by the Voortrekkers, the Stuurmansfontein Corbelled House or Osfontein Corbelled Guest House near Carnarvon.
  • You know you’re in Africa when you stay in a real Makuku with traditional food and clothing, and sit around a crackling fire in the lapa on a game drive. That’s what you’ll experience when you book a stay at Emoya Estate.

These are just some of the many unusual stays that are available to you.  Visit Safari Now’s blog post about unusual places to sleep, and let the Bucket List Genie help you arrange your stay.
