The Philosophy of AfricanLuxuryVillas.com
Africa is famous for its wildlife and its tropical beaches, but most people will struggle to find and plan a vacation on their own. As a result, they usually approach big tour operators that will organize the entire itinerary and often compromise on privacy and individualism for the benefit of full service and complete organization of the trip. Too many unknown factors like knowledge of the location, the safety and even how to get there or move about, make them hesitate from booking directly and planning individually.
We grew up and lived in Africa, hence we know the best spots for your vacation and we know which places are a must as well as those that should be avoided. We visit the villas that we offer personally to make sure that both property and service are indeed as promised on the website and we know if they are suitable for your needs. In other words, we provide personal advise tailored to your needs and suggest the most suitable accommodation out of our portfolio of preselected villas instead of being yet another portal that lists countless houses of unverified quality and standard.
Although you will find only accommodation on our website, this doesn't mean that our service ends there. We are well aware of the fact that it is not always easy to plan the entire trip on your own and therefore we will also provide you with essential info to book everything else that you may need like for example domestic flights, car hire and transfers. Also, we know most of the prime places for Safari and cooperate with lodge/camp owners in case you wish to combine your vacation on the coast with a trip to the famous National Parks. Basically we provide all the pieces of a puzzle, you just have to pick and chose those that will produce the picture of your perfect holiday in Africa.
We exclusively cooperate directly with the owners, in order to be sure that we are always up to date, know that we are working with partners that we can trust and that we have the best rates. All houses in our portfolio come at least with maid service, private chef, security personnel and property manager. Our rental prices always include sheets, linen & towels, cleaning and final cleaning, electricity and water consumption as well as VAT and any other taxes. In other words, the rental rates on our website are all you are going to pay and there are no hidden costs. Of course, optional services & activities, food & shopping as well as transfers or other means of transport are optional, so they are not included and to be booked separately.
We love Africa and our goal is to share the most beautiful places with you. We want you to experience a wonderful and unforgettable holiday in this unique tropical paradise.
