In addition to its exclusive lodges, the Lion Sands Game Reserve boasts three magical tree houses set amidst the wilderness and majesty of South Africa’s Sabi Sand Game Reserve. Because of the African landscape that stretches as far as the eye can see, the Chalkley Tree House was set up in a majestic centuries old Leadwood tree to escape the predators roaming the plains below. The ideal place for the ultimate bush bedrooms, the Chalkley Tree House is a secure and lavish platform with all comforts that a guest can experience in a five-star safari lodge. The guests are taken to the tree house at sunset where they can relax and absorb the vastness of the surroundings as the night falls over, “before turning in for slumber beneath the incredible night sky”.
The Kingstone Tree House is a luxury sanctuary with stylish, contemporary décor, a full bathroom and all sorts of night predators roaming wildly at your feet. This tree house was constructed entirely from wood and glass and no matter what the weather has in store you will have a safe and luxurious setting with a unique window to enjoy the ever-changing views. The Kingstone Tree House is situated just 5 minutes away from the main lodge so you will have close contact with rangers in case of emergency, as well as cell phone reception. But don’t expect wi-fi in the bush.
The Tinyeleti Tree House is equally staggering and it offers accommodation on a 50m2 deck provided with a lavishly comfortable bed, torches and a small dining area. The Tinyeleti Tree House translates as “many stars” and is not merely a vantage point from where to observe the splendor of the Sabie River, but an open-air invitation to become one with the place.
