    We'll be back!

    We visited this treehouse with our 4s. 2 adults and 2 kids of 12 and 13. What a kindness and hospitality. The lodge was beyond expectations. Large, clean and breathtaking views. The owners do everything possible to make it to the sentence. They arrange for you, help you and advise you correctly.

    For us absolutely a place to go back to!

    Great place to visit, lovely treehouse

    In the bush is this beautiful lodge. We were warmly welcomed on arrival by law towels and a drink. The Treehouses were all different and unique. We had apparently slightly newer. Wonderful view from the balcony and spacious enough for us (2 adults + 2 children). We have slept two nights and made a morning with an extremely friendly ranger and game drive made in the nearby reserve. The food in the boma was fine and attractive and the breakfast also good (English). The pool is very small though our children will have bored in no time. An absolute must must-go if you have the chance!
