Found in Bloemfontein in the Free State, the Emoya Hotel and Spa puts guests up for the night in shacks. This might not be everyone’s idea of a great place to stay, but it is an interesting option if you are looking for a unique experience. You will have the option of staying in the Basotho Village (which is more luxurious than the other facilities), or you can stay in a shack of your own.

The views from the hotel are some of the best in the country, giving you the perfect view of the beautiful Drakensberg Mountains. Again you can expect to sleep on a quality bed, this is not your average type of accommodation.



Flycatcher Castle

It’s not called a castle for no reason. When you stay at the Flycatcher Castle, you will be staying in accommodation fit for royalty and as such, you can expect great hotel beds.

Flycatcher Castle is in the beautiful province of Mpumalanga, up high in the Graskop area. This gorgeous hotel is styled after a 17th century Italian castle. Offering you a real fairytale like experience, guests are in for a treat when they stay here. Within the hotel, there are different themed rooms, but most are a reflection of other cultures and periods in time. One suite is particularly different, the Ruby Royal has a charming Arabian setting that you won’t soon come across in other places.

TiPi Bush Camp

You can’t have a list of great hotels without including a bush camp. There are numerous bush camps across South Africa, and a lot of them offer truly luxurious accommodation. Bush camps won’t have you sleeping on a hard mattress on the floor. Some of the best bush camps in South Africa look for the best hotel beds for sale when doing up the sleeping areas.

The TiPi Bush Camp is one of those luxury camps offering accommodation in one of the most tranquil places in South Africa. Found in Addo Elephant National Park, the TiPi Bush Camp is designed in the shape of an American Indian tipi, and it is big enough to easily accommodate 4 people. Giving you extra privacy, the tipi accommodation is self-catering. The two tipis give guests a stunning view of the valley and the game living in the area.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
