The late South African president Nelson Mandela influenced tremendous change in the 20th century and left behind a monumental legacy.

But in addition to his political and philanthropic efforts and achievements, Mandela's remarkable legacy includes a stunning six-bedroom Safari home in South Africa that travelers can now rent for their next trip.

According to Jennifer Ceaser of the New York Post, the high profile villa is available to anyone willing to pay the hefty rate of $5,741 per night. 

Located roughly two and a half hours north of Johannesburg, the Nelson Mandela Centre for Reconciliation is situated in the heart of the African wild, but features a plethora of modern and luxury amenities.

There's a heated pool (as seen below via the New York Post), a private chef, and even butler service. Plus, guests have access to nearby bush walks and cruises.

Inside the villa, up to a dozen guests can take advantage of the massive living room, dining, and meeting areas.

What's more, the unique lcoation along the Shambala Private Game Reserve means high-rolling guests will be able to spot wild animals like elephants, rhinos, and lions without having to wander far from their temporary digs. 

The property, which features eye-pleasing Mozambican style throughout, was constructed back in 2001. 

But if you can't afford $5,741 a night, you're probably better suited staying at the nearby Zulu Camp, which offers a similar experience minus all the space and prominence.
