There’s noth­ing more ro­man­tic than an up­mar­ket bush get­away.

The pri­vacy of the lo­ca­tion, the beau­ti­ful decor of the lodge, the staff at your beck and call, and sun­set drinks while sur­rounded by Africa’s wildlife. Ze­bra Hills is a fairly unique place in­so­far as you rent an en­tire sa­fari-style home for the du­ra­tion of your stay, and bring your own food (to be cooked for you by a chef and served by but­lers). There is a three-bed­room Home­stead and the seven-bed­room Main Lodge to choose from, so we teamed up with old friends and cel­e­brated Valen­tine’s Day to­gether at the Home­stead. Of course, the kids had to come along too, which in many cases can to­tally ruin a ro­man­tic vibe, but Ze­bra Hills caters for chil­dren and there were games for them to play and a pool to oc­cupy them. They, of course, were housed in their own room. In­cluded in the cost are two game drives a day, which kept us all busy. In the evenings, we supped on fine wines around a blaz­ing fire pit and watched wildlife come and go at an il­lu­mi­nated wa­ter­ing hole. Pure African Bliss.
