Receive world class Hotel Butler Training

By Butler Academy



Hotel Butler Service is unique and differs from the residential butler job description;  the hotel butler provides a seamless service to not only one guest or one family but to many guests and many families on short stays or longer. The effect which is created by the hotel butler is forever in the minds of his / her clients. Many Hotels provide Hotel Butler Service and quite a few do not know the services which a Butler can offer to guests, therefor the Academy assists in providing the correct job description & training for Hotels / Resorts / Lodges & Yachts.


The South African Butler Academy base our programs literally on practical training, we are by far the number one choice in the world when it comes to hotel butler training.  When onsite we touch the senses and interpersonal development of each student – we leave a mark which no one can copy or claim. The South African Butler Academy Training is purposefully imagined & Meticulously considered, crafted to precision.   It’s not just what’s next. But what should be next!


The Butler Academy specializes in the training of Hotel & Resort butlers as well as butlers working in Africa surrounded by nature and spectacular views.  From Kenya to Namibia we provide Butler Training to 5 Star Lodges across Africa. Recently we completed our 14 day training program in Madikwe “Etali Safari Lodge”
