Tree Houses in Africa

June 12, 2013  By: Gretchen

LS ChalkeyWhat is the ultimate romantic spot to stay in Africa? We think staying in one of South Africa’s safari tree houses fits the bill. Guests spend the night away from one of the main lodges at Lion Sands in a ‘bush bedroom’ with all the comforts that you can experience at a five star safari lodge. Guests are escorted to the tree house at sunset, where drinks and a scrumptious picnic dinner await them. The hours of African dusk can be enjoyed relaxing and absorbing the vastness of
the bushveld as it transforms from day to night, before turning in for slumber beneath the incredible night sky, while enjoying the sweet lullaby of bush sounds.

You will have radio contact with the rangers, should you choose to. There is also limited cell phone reception; but don’t expect any wi-fi in the bush! While you might only be a few minutes from the main lodge, you will feel a million miles away. Tree houses are equipped with a sink and toilet, and some boast a full bathroom including shower facilities. They also feature Africology products to complete your sensory experience.

Some tree houses allow you to enjoy an hour-long massage under the stars to relax and become quiet with the nature around you. Other facilities include a yoga mat for your use, should choose to greet the dawn with some sun salutations.LS Kingston 5

If a family safari is more your speed, a few tree houses sleep up to four, so the kids can come along and share an unforgettable night in the bush with you! There is also a brand new, family-friendly tree house set to open in malaria-free Madikwe in March of 2014. We are currently taking bookings for next year.

Do you envision a night under African skies all to yourself? Call us with any questions and to reserve your space in one of these magical tree houses!
