Guy Aubrey Chalkley once set up camp in a majestic centuries-old Leadwood Tree to escape the predators roaming the plains below. That’s how the people behind the Lion Sands Game Reserve decided that this would be the ideal place to build the ultimate bush bedroom, and so came to be The Chalkley Treehouse.
A secure and lavish platform under the stars, The Chalkley Treehouse is the perfect place to capture and enjoy Africa’s vast, splendid landscape. this tree house hotel has all the 5-star comforts, but affords an experience as wild as the animals that roam beneath it. Secure and luxurious, this “bush bedroom” has all the comforts that a guest can expect at a five star safari lodge. Guests are taken to the treehouse at sunset, where a delicious picnic dinner awaits—and finish the day by sipping a drink long into the starry night.
The Chalkley Treehouse is available from ZAR 2 750.00 per person per night ($235/£150/€189).
