It's level one and because of lockdown, people have started exploring South Africa and taking short lefts.

Their perfect holiday might be in a luxury hotel or camping on some isolated area. But now there's a whole new accommodation area to explore - celebrity homes.

Want a peak at DJ Zinhle's life or to sleep in Oskido's bed? We look at some of the unusual homes you could visit for your next holiday.

Houseboat Myrtle - Knysna

This is a permanently anchored cottage in water in the Knysna Lagoon. It sleeps four guests on two double beds. The private main bedroom has its own deck. The second bed is a convertible bed, more ideal for two children, as it is in the living area, so is not a private room.
The houseboat boasts a kitchen nook with a 4 plate gas stove, oven and large fridge, a braai on the deck if you would like to cook outdoors while taking in the views. It also has a spacious bathroom with a hot shower and a toilet.

The "DAM" House - Hartbeespoort

Situated at the Cradle of Humankind in Gauteng, it was originally a farm dam.

Oskido's Hyde Park luxury apartment

Legendary musician Oskido now has an apartment available in Hyde Park. It has 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom, an open-plan kitchen, with a dining and living area, leading to a balcony with a view.

Guest can have access to a gym, steam room, ice room, and a restaurant.

DJ Zinhle's Bryanston luxury apartment

Hitmaker DJ Zinhle has a 2-bedroom apartment in Bryanston. It sleeps four guests, has 2 bedrooms, two beds and two bathrooms. It also has the kind of furniture she has in her own home and a dressing room.

Tin Can Glamping Caravan

In Kwa Zulu Natal, the unusual style of accommodation offers patio with river views, a kitchenette with a fridge and a stovetop, and a private bathroom with shower. This is a refurbished 1966 Gypsy caravan used for a glamping experience.
