The Chalkley Treehouse


The African landscape stretches as far as the eye can see at Lion Sands, and to capitalize on the amazing view Lion Sands found a special place to capture and enjoy its vastness and splendor. Guy Aubrey Chalkley once set up camp in a majestic centuries-old Leadwood Tree to escape predators roaming the plains below and that spot is where the Chalkley Treehouse now sits.


The tree house is a secure and lavish platform under the African stars, with all the comforts that a guest can experience at a five star safari lodge. Guests adventuring out for a night in the open air head out to the tree house at sunset, where drinks and a scrumptious picnic dinner await them. The hours of African dusk can be enjoyed relaxing and absorbing the vastness of the bushveld as it transforms from day to night, before turning in for slumber beneath the incredible night sky.


The Kingston Treehouse


The Kingston Treehouse is constructed entirely from wood and glass, with contemporary décor in understated hues of greys, white, black and purple. No matter what the weather has in store, you will have a safe and luxurious setting with a unique window to enjoy the ever-changing views. The treehouse is situated about 5 minutes from the main lodge, and guest are always provided with a hand radio to contact the rangers if needed.


Kingston is equipped with full bathroom and shower facilities, and Africology products to complete your sensory experience. Before a dinner of tapas or a full meal with Champagne, enjoy an hour-long massage under the stars to relax and become quiet with the nature around you. A yoga mat and chart are also provided for your use, should the whim strike you.


Tinyeleti Treehouse


Tinyeleti Treehouse is fully equipped for your relaxation and you can expect all the comforts of a luxury stay including a relaxing massage. Enjoy your choice of tapas or a full meal, and then settle in with a cocktail as the animals come to drink at sunset. The deck can accommodate 4 people, and children are welcome. You are provided with a torch, and, even though there is no electricity, you will find a few bars of cellphone signal.


Expect to hear the constant rush of life from the Sabie River on your doorstep, as well as a few animals, night predators and birds chiming in. Tinyeleti is an uninterrupted overnight experience that cannot be replicated, but that will most definitely be re-told. That is, if you can find the words to describe it. For us who have come here many times over, well, we're still at a loss.
