Self-catering Safaris

This is a safari package perfect for groups or families looking for an exclusively booked lodge and would like to tailor-make the experience. A private chef (Chef en Route) and private guide are there to offer their expertise and adapt to guests’ individual requirements. This way, the safari activities run at your own pace, and dietary choices can be easily catered for.

The Greater Kruger Park has some sublime self-catering, exclusive-use safari lodges, varying from casual and rustic, to indulgent and luxurious. A very popular destination and style of safari for adventurous groups from South Africa and travelling from abroad. A self-catering safari is often the most affordable and easy-going holiday experience with personalised style, while a private chef is available for guests who would like to be catered for. Family fry-ups on the deck in the mornings, lazy lunches, and festive braais in the boma each night – this is what a self-catering safari is about.

Utilising these exclusive-use camps in the Timbavati, Klaserie and Sabi Sand Game Reserves, we get world-renowned game viewing, with less vehicle traffic, the opportunities to tailor-make the game drive and activity schedule, and spend loads of time at sightings.

This package is the perfect option for families, friends and corporates. Quality time, uninhibited by the presence of others, kids can enjoy the experience freely, fireside parties can go on into the night, or meetings and strategic planning sessions can be inspired by the wild surroundings, and invigorating experiences in nature.

BHS uses a whole range of exclusive-use camps offering intimacy, privacy, a feeling of home, expert guiding, delicious food, and the very best experience out there!

Get in touch for the perfect family getaway; this is an unbeatable bush experience, a release from the stresses of daily life, a top quality South African holiday.
