Travellers can choose from an impressive range of places including a clifftop eco-lodge in the heart of the Nambiti Reserve, sea-facing villas on Clifton Beach in Cape Town and properties with dramatic views of Table Mountain.

Guests’ every need will be taken care of by Oliver’s Travels’ concierge team which can arrange a variety of services including in-villa private chefs, food delivery, fridge stocking, childcare, spa treatments, maid service, excursions and other activities.

Esiweni Lodge, Nambiti Reserve
Situated in the stunning Nambiti Reserve, between Johannesburg and Durban, this luxurious African eco-lodge can be rented exclusively to private groups sleeping 10 - 15 guests across five suites.

Each suite can also be rented individually, ideal for couples. Perched on a dramatic cliff top, Esiweni Lodge overlooks the Sunday River within the Nambiti reserve, where cheetahs and rhinos can be spotted. Guests can take a dip in the infinity pool overlooking views of the savannah and the bush or enjoy a sundowner on the outdoor terrace.

The eco-lodge is committed to the conversation of the region’s wildlife, flora and fauna, and offers offers safari tours twice a day that do not go off road in order to protect the reserve’s biodiversity.
