Ultra Luxury Private Safari Homes For Sale

For decades, wildlife lovers have dreamt of owning a private home in the African bush.

African Homesteads offers now a select number of homeowners to be a part of South Africa's exceptional &Beyond Phinda Private Game Reserve.

In the heart of South Africa, bordering a World Heritage Site, where the St. Lucia Wetlands meet the wilds of KwaZulu-Natal, you will find the seven habitats that make up &Beyond Phinda Private Game Reserve.

This is where African Homesteads is located, offering 15 private ultra luxurious safari homes on carefully chosen sites in the 23,000 hectare Big Five Reserve.

The ease of access - flights from Johannesburg to Phinda's private air strip take about an hour and a half - and the Reserve's proximity to the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, a mere 10-minute helicopter flight away, make African Homesteads the ultimate bush and beach offering.
Owners can spend the morning soaking up the sun and the sea or scuba diving at one of Sodwana Bay's world famous sites, and then return to their Homestead in time for a late afternoon game drive, all on the same day.

Each luxurious safari homestead extends over 800m² (8,600 square feet) and comprises four generous bedroom suites with beautifully appointed bathrooms built around spacious indoor and outdoor areas.

There is a fifth en suite bedroom for the owner's personal staff. Expansive wooden decks and a large infinity pool overlook the untamed wilderness and the wildlife that passes through it. A Zen-like exercise pavilion overlooking water features, a sensual outdoor shower and a romantic boma are unexpected additions.

Each exclusive safari home comes fully serviced by eight &Beyond staff members - including a personal ranger, a tracker, a chef, a butler, and a security guard - and come equipped with a four-by-four game-drive vehicle and an infinity-edge swimming pool, ensuring the hassle-free living desired by those searching for the ultimate safari retreat.

&Beyond is one of the pioneers in responsible sustainable tourism and &Beyond Phinda Private Game Reserve was selected by Conde Nast Traveler as a leader in social responsibility, winning the World Savers Award for best in wildlife conservation. Utmost care has been taken to ensure zero negative impact outside the confines of the building footprint.

No established trees or animals have or will be uprooted or displaced during the construction of any of the African Homesteads.

African Homesteads are priced from US$6 million each and are offered on a 70 year leasehold. The purchase price includes traversing rights over the full extent of the 56,800-acre Big Five reserve (Big Five referring to the presence of lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo and elephant).

African Homesteads are available for sale from Signature Residences Worldwide. Website /
