A Treehouse Night at the Lion Sands Private Game Reserve • Luxury Hotels TravelPlusStyle

There is something exciting and romantic—even atavistic—about spending a night sheltered among the branches of an old leadwood tree. Few places in the world can offer such a treat—an experience not spoiled by the knowledge that the safety of the main lodge is only 5 minutes away.

The treehouses are completely private and secluded and in each a bedroom is set up to accommodate a single or sharing guests for the night, with secure access and as many of the modern comforts as possible.

Indeed the furnishings are more than perfectly adequate for a wilderness experience. The three tree houses are beautifully designed and are provided with vanity necessities, including the mosquito net is romantically draped on the four-pillar bed.

Expect to hear a constant rush of life from the Sabie River: animals, night predators and birds. This treehouse is not just a vantage point from where to observe the meandering river with the spectacle of life it sustains, but a platform that allows to become a part of it.

The 50m2 deck can accommodate 4 guests—and children are welcome. There is no electricity—but the lodge will equip you with a torch, and you should even be able to get a cellphone signal. But are you really bothered about checking your SMS? Didn’t think so.

Chalkley is the perfect place to capture and enjoy Africa’s vast, splendid landscape. Secure and luxurious, this “bush bedroom” has all the comforts that a guest can expect at a five star safari lodge. Arrive here at sunset and find a delicious picnic dinner awaiting—and finish the day by sipping a drink long into the starry night.

The most striking feature of this delightful hideaway is its construction. It employs large sheets of glass, combined with wood—to a spectacular effect. The contemporary décor inside seduces with understated greys and whites—and elegant black and purple. It’s a luxurious setting with a unique window to enjoy the ever-changing views—no matter what the weather has in store.
