Villa Okavango

Villa Okavango in the Okavango Delta, Botswana


Villa Okavango offers the individual guest, or one with a small family, or group of friends of no more than four in total, the rare privilege of relaxing in complete and secluded luxury amidst the splendour of the Okavango Delta.

Set on the edge of a large perennial lagoon with a wide variety of birdlife and a resident school of hippos, the Villa was originally constructed as Randall Moore's private lodge in the middle of his 500,000-acre concession area in the Delta. It is situated in a picturesque grove of ancient trees including one magnificent specimen of the extraordinary "sausage tree", the Kigelia africana, with its distinctive large sausage-like fruit.

The Villa is built on an elevated, teak deck. The accommodation itself consists of two large bedrooms, one with twin beds (that may be converted to a double), one with a double bed and both with en-suite full bathroom facilities. The dining and lounge areas are equally spacious. The furnishings and fittings are in colonial-baronial style befitting the best of bush lodge luxury – four-poster beds and antique sleigh beds.

The Villa, has its own distinctive facilities and staff, including a housekeeper, a chef and a knowledgeable private guide. Subject to availability, there is no limit on the number of days guests that may stay in this beautiful spot and there is no age restriction.

Guests may cool off in the plunge pool in the heat of the day. The guide is at the beck and call of guests to conduct morning or evening game viewing drives or organize trips on the Okavango’s numerous waterways in a mokoro, the unique canoe-like craft traditionally used in the Delta. The guide is also on hand at all times to inform guests of all phpects of conservation, ecology and wildlife in the Delta.

Wild game around the Villa is plentiful, from the herds of lechwe, impala, tssessebe and wildebeest to the giraffe browsing on the acacias and herds of buffalo and elephants that passes close by. The predators are never very far away and guests should not be surprised to hear the thrilling nocturnal calling of the large pride of lions which has made this area their home territory.

At The Kalahari Manor you can experience the vastness of the Kalahari while enjoying some of the most prolific bird life or do some star gazing at night.

When outsiders think of the Klahari, the image they generally have is the red sands of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. But locals know it as a vast flatland of spcectacular thunder-storms, old-fashioned villages, freindly folk and, when the rain comes, blizzards of butterlies.

Here you can meet and explore this remarkable environment with bushman Guides of the San peoples, one of the oldest cultures in Africa. Experience a tour with real bushmen. Exploring the bush on foot, learning of the hunting and survival skills, the culture and crafts of the San people, who over the centuries have adapted their lives to survive in the most inhospitable environment of them all.

Private Villa on Fregate Island

Fregate Private Island, Seychelles

Fregate is a magnificent granite island 55 km east of Mahe. With deserted beaches of blinding-white, soft sand, pristine coral reefs, rare wildlife and just 16 luxurious, private villas, and a wealth of facilities, Fregate Island is world-class luxury in a breathtaking natural environment. Fregate offers the most luxurious accommodation, the best beaches and the highest degree of service found anywhere in the Seychelles.

Fregate Island is said to have the most beautiful beach in the world, according to the New York Times.


To maintain Fregate Island's tranquility and beauty without impacting the delicate balance of its ecosystem, Fregate Island Private voluntarily restricts itself to just sixteen 185-square-metre (2,000-square-foot) villas.

Built from traditional materials such as native mahogany and African teak in a simple post-and-lintel style, the villas are topped off with dense thatched roofs. All have huge bedrooms and a separate living room, two bathrooms, Jacuzzi, sun deck and outside garden showers. A private terrace provides magnificent views of the sea.

Both the architecture and decor draw on Balinese and Thai influences. Fourteen of the villas sit on top of the cliffs with panoramic views over the Indian Ocean.

Two more nestle in their own private tropical gardens, and these are particularly good choices for families vacationing with young children.

Despite their traditional appearance and supremely laid-back ambiance, the villas come well-equipped with DVD machines and CD players.

And, of course, if the fresh sea breezes aren't quite cool enough for you, there's always air conditioning.


Fregate Island offers you a Five Star Kitchen and perhaps the finest Creole cuisine in the Seychelles, together with the best wines.

Meals are served in the Plantation House or in the main restaurant where great emphasis is placed on personal service.

Fregate Island also offers its guests a twenty four hour in-villa dining service and caters for special dining requests such as beach picnics and secluded candlelit dinners.

If you like please order your breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea or dinner on one of the beaches or the terrace of your villa
