About this listing
Stay in our premiere couples self-catering tree house with its own kitchen, braai (BBQ), and boma. Our thatched roofed tree house is elevated to afford the best view of the African wildlife and mountains. Close to Kruger Park or just relax in nature.
Stay in a tree house in the African Bush! Our wood and thatch tree house is elevated to get a great view of our wildlife and the sunset view of the mountains. We are on a wildlife reserve so giraffes, zebra, impala, birds, buffalo and more wander freely around and under the tree house. You can watch from the tree house or a short walk to the lodge building to watch the watering hole. The stars are amazing and you can enjoy them in the private boma after you have cooked on the fire. The kitchen is large and fully equipped with everything you need except the food. In the tree house you will have an ensuite bathroom with tub, toilet, sink, and a fun outside shower with views . The tree house is accessed with ramps not stairs.
You will have your own tree house which sleeps 2 people in a king or twin beds with real mattresses. Sheets, blankets, towels, kitchen linen are provided and the facility is served daily. The kitchen, boma, braai, and tree house are out of site of our other units so you will have privacy. You are welcome to use the pool, deck, and lounge at the main lodge; a 3 minute walk.
Interaction with guests
When you arrive onto our gated reserve, you will pay a conservation fee of R50 and we will greet you and show you the tree house. We are available if you have questions or problems. There may be other guests in our 3 other tree houses to mingle with. Come have a drink (or book meals) with us at our sister lodge, just 1 km down the road.
Our reserve has animals that are easy to see from your accommodations. It is also possible to book game drives in open vehicles for a morning or evening drive at nearby private reserves, big 5 reserves, or all day trips to Kruger National Park. You can also drive to nearby wildlife rehab centres, local garden cafes, shopping and dining in the town of Hoedspruit, or outdoor and scenic activities in the Blyde Canyon region. Kruger is also a fantastic day trip if you self drive!
We are located on a private reserve 50km southeast of Hoedspruit or 18km north of Acornhoek. Hoedspruit has a small airport with links from Johannesburg. Private transfers or a car hire can be arranged from there.
Other things to note
If you want to be served a few meals, we can quote for a few meals to be served at our sister lodge. At this same lodge you can experience the unique white lion conservation program where you can get close to two white lions and go on a walk with them. Followed by breakfast, dinner or drinks if you wish.
