South of Africa is defined by its unique African Spaces. And it offers bespoke and Secret Places.

There’s a fresh new force in the hospitality industry. South of Africa is a unique group of hotels and self-catering cottages offering distinctive experiences through its many establishments in two of South Africa’s most popular tourism destinations: Limpopo and the Western Cape.

Whether guests desire the sought-after luxury of a five-star establishment, or comfortable, affordable accommodation, each of the properties in our portfolio has its own identity, true to the areas in which they are located.

South of Africa’s property portfolio offers both catered and self-catering accommodation that ranges from standard/budget, to Deluxe and Superior Luxury establishments. Discover the African Spaces and Secret Places that offer guests the opportunity to experience the dream.
