Sovereign House

6 guests · 3 bedrooms · 3.5 baths
Watch from the pool deck as your neighbor-elephants stroll along the path just outside this breezy villa in the Madikwe Reserve. After a catered breakfast in the alfresco lounge, stretch out on a lounger and work on your tan. When you’re ready, hop in a safari vehicle and set out on a guided tour in search of the big 5 throughout 76k-hectares of a malaria-free natural wonderland.
Barefoot-luxury awaits at this open-air safari villa nestled in an ancient dolomite ridge in South Africa’s Madikwe Reserve. When you’re not out exploring the reserve, enjoy fully catered meals, afternoon swims, and cozy nights by the fireplace in Sovereign House. In the day time, the reserve is yours to discover. Your group will set out on 2 private tours each day with your own guide and safari vehicle to spot Africa’s most beloved creatures. Elephants, lions, leopards, cheetahs, and many more await. You’ll also see more than 300 types of indigenous bird species spread through Madikwe’s grasslands, woodlands, and the Tshwene hills.
Back at Sovereign House, you and your group can recount tales from the safari while enjoying an exquisite dinner crafted by a private chef. After, get a fire going outside and enjoy a few sunset cocktails while you look over pictures from the day. Before bed, rejuvenate with a refreshing alfresco shower or a long soak in the master ensuite’s deep bathtub.
