Unforgettable Treehouses in South Africa:

Million star accommodations

17/07/2018 | Published 1 year 4 months ago

Discover the magic of Africa at night in a 'million star' accommodation. From sunset to sunrise, take in the glorious expanse as you watch animals travel past, marvel at the forever reaching stars and enjoy the solitude of a private treehouse.

Unlike the treehouses of your childhood, these are filled with luxury and out in the wilderness you will by no means be roughing it. Your night in one of these extraordinary accommodations will be one you’ll never forget. Below are a few of our favourite Treehouses in South Africa.

Chalkley Treehouse

Originally a camp set up to escape the predators below, Chalkley Treehouse is found in a centuries old Leadwood Tree in Lion Sands Game Reserve, near Sabi Sands. This secure platform is filled with 5 star comforts, yet still feels a world away as animals roam below.

Kingston Treehouse

Hidden within rows of enchanting While Boulders and across a drawbridge, the Kingston treehouse is set amongst the pure, untouched wild of the Lion Sands Game Reserve near the border with Sabi Sands. This uninhibited wildlife experience will allow you to take in the African Bush in a way that many dream of.


Tinyeleti Treehouse

Tinyeleti Treehouse, the most family friendly Treehouse, can take up to 2 adults and 2 children under the age of 15, so you don’t have to worry about leaving the children at home. Here you can have an unmatched overnight wilderness experience as you watch the sun set whilst animals arrive to quench their thirst at the river in front of the Treehouse in Lion Sands Game Reserve.


Thabametsi Treehouse

Thabametsi Treehouse, the newest of these treehouses, is about having a connection to the wild open plains you find yourself in. With complete privacy and over two floors, you have expansive views over the Marakele National Park. Experience the balance between luxury and a perfect natural environment in Marataba, South Africa.


We can make your dreams come true with a tailor-made Treehouse experience of your own as you travel through South Africa, or beyond. Prepare yourself to experience a night under the stars in Africa and contact our destination experts or find more inspiration in our Africa Tailor-made collection.
