Discover the Diverse Wildlife of Lion Sands Game Reserve
Add something truly special and spectacular to your stay at any of the Lion Sands safari lodges. Lion Sands boasts three absolutely stunning tree houses offering you a complete fresh perspective on the South African bush. Sleeping under the stars in complete privacy whilst listening to the sounds of the bush is an unparalleled experience. A night in a tree house can be booked as an add on when staying at River, Ivory, Narina or Tinga Lodge. The tree house experience is an extremely popular option so we recommend booking as early as possible.
The Sabi Sands Treehouses are the ultimate bush bedrooms. You will be taken to your tree house at sunset to enjoy mouthwatering picnic dinner and spend the hours of sunset fully appreciating the vastness of the African bush as it transforms from day to night.
All Lion Sands tree houses are securely constructed above the ground, where animals will remain at a safe and comfortable distance. Your dedicated ranger will provide a full orientation when he drops you off before sunset, and will remain on call via the radio left behind until it is time to leave the following morning after sunrise and a good cup of coffee.
Embrace a night under the stars away from noise and clutter, where you are fully immersed into the essence of nature’s tranquil magnificence. Lion Sands Treehouse is a secure, completely private and lavish platform built around a majestic 500-year-old Leadwood Tree. Luxury and simplicity in the treetops is a breathtaking addition to round off the perfect luxury African safari holiday.
The original hideout. Light only by the soft glow of lanterns and the absence of Wi-Fi create an au-naturel bush experience for two. But added creature comforts mean guests won’t be roughing it.
The Chalkley Treehouse is a secure and lavish platform under the African skies, the romantic treehouse has all the 5-star comforts, but affords an experience as wild as the animals that roam beneath it.
You can be sure you won’t be watching life from behind the glass here. Open to the wild and the heavens, the Chalkley experience is of raw Africa – but with picnic dining, a comfy bed, and hot shower involved.
Built just beyond an outcrop of boulders, Kingston is a couple or family’s private vantage over the untamed and untainted, its stillness punctuated only by animals’ whistles, huffs, growls… Guests savour this far faraway experience, in complete luxury – with a picnic dinner, feather beds, and full bathing facilities.
Make your way through rows of imposing white boulders and across a small drawbridge, and you will find the South African bush unfolding in front of you. Set amidst the pure and untouched wilderness, you will be surrounded by African bush and uninhibited wildlife at its very best. The Kingston treehouse is equipped with full bathroom and shower facilities, and Africology products to complete your sensory experience.
Tinyeleti, meaning ‘many stars’, offers big views of a remote landscape, globed by an even bigger sky, its lights twinkling down to the horizon. But couples and families needn’t forgo luxury for an out-of-this world experience. A gourmet picnic, illuminated by lanterns, and feather beds ensure guests will be quite comfortable.
The Tinyeleti Treehouse in Sabi Sands, is an overnight wilderness experience that has no equal. Watch the sun set beyond the horizon as you sip on a cocktail or a glass of bubbly. You will be utterly riveted by the many animals that arrive at the river to quench their thirst. Tinyeleti is a tale you will tell over and again. That is, if you can find the words to describe it.
