Treehouse hotel in South Africa: Lion Sands Game Reserve Treehouses

Described as the most naturally beautiful settings in the world, South Africa’s Lion Sands Game Reserve lets guests experience the natural African wildlife

Described by The Coolist as one of the “most naturally beautiful settings in the world”, South Africa’s Lion Sands Game Reserve lets guests experience the natural African wildlife—like lions, hippos, elephants, and giraffes—up close, while staying in luxurious accommodations.

The eco resort features five cozy lodges and three deluxe treehouses, located in the thick of the wilderness. The unique treehouses are elevated on platforms that lift guests above the African landscape for an unforgettable night under the stars.

Adventurous guests can sleep in the wild of South Africa, safely elevated above the beautiful landscape. With minimal amenities and no electricity, the tree houses allow guests to truly experience the great African outdoors—especially when the sun sets and the night life comes alive.

Lion Sands Game Reserve’s guests can choose from three stilted treehouses: The Chalkley Treehouse which hugs an old tree in the middle of a field, and it’s strung with lanterns to illuminate the night. The Tinyeleti Treehouse which is nestled within lush trees overlooking a stream, and is accessible via an elevated boardwalk. Last but not least, the deluxe Kingston treehouse is surrounded by natural boulders, and features a glassed-in bathroom area and a woven roof…

All three 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.

Each of the open-air treehouses features a deluxe canopy bed with mosquito netting, a dining area and a bathroom. Once guests arrive to the resort, they are escorted to their treehouse where a picnic dinner awaits. The African bush unfolds before them as they start an unforgettable evening of watching the wildlife, the incredible sunset and the open sky of stars. The main lodge offers hot tubs, outdoor baths and saunas overlooking the picturesque Sabie River.

Rates start at ZAR 2 750.00 per person per night ($235/£150/€189).
