Four spacious and luxurious suites feature unique sliding panel windows with sweeping views of the surrounding African bushveld. A beautiful combination of yellow sandstone with timber, thatch and screeded cement, airy free flowing spaces and hues of grey, slate and celadon are breathtakingly stylish and sophisticated, yet refreshingly simple. Natural fibres and textures characterise the elegant interiors. Complete with private ranger/host, tracker, butler and chef, as well as exclusive use of an open 4x4 safari vehicle, Getty House is ideal for family celebrations and special occasion safaris. An interactive kitchen allows for intimate, informal dining and a rim-flow eternity pool provides for respite from the heat of the day.

Phinda's exciting safari activities: Safari adventures with your private ranger include morning and evening game-drives in open 4x4 game-viewing vehicles. Boat cruises, canoe trips and bush walks, bush sundowners and visits local villages can also be arranged.
