Honeymoon Experiences

Sleep Under A Canopy Of Stars

An African honeymoon is a once-in-a-lifetime dream vacation. And since most of us have dreamt about spending a night under a canopy of stars, there is no better time or place to make this happen.

For a bucket list experience under the African skies, choose one of our romantic treehouses & enjoy a night of adventure, romance & luxury.

Each treehouse is luxuriously set up for you, usually accompanied by a special dinner under the stars, a radio & a starry sky as canopy. Some treehouses are located in the middle of the bush (close enough to camp) while others come in the form of ‘star beds’ on your chalet’s open rooftop deck.

Are you excited yet? Let’s see which treehouse brings out the romantic in you!

(Please note that most treehouse stays are only available when booking a room at the lodge, in the event that you have to return to your room due to bad weather.)

1. Lion Sands Treehouses, Sabi Sand Game Reserve – South Africa The crème de la crème of treehouses can be found in the game-packed Big 5 Sabi Sand Game Reserve & the Kruger Private Concession in South Africa. Lion Sands have 4 lodges to choose from: River Lodge, Ivory Lodge, Tinga Lodge & Narina Lodge – all offering an unforgettable night under the stars. Their luxury treehouses include Chalkley Treehouse & Kingstone Treehouse which sleep 2 adults each & Tinyeleti Treehouse which sleeps 2 adults & 2 children under the age of 15.

2. The Ngala Treehouse, Timbavati Game Reserve – South Africa You get treehouses & you get treehouses. The contemporary Ngala Treehouse will not disappoint. It is the perfect fit for the discerning traveller who wants to be surrounded by nature, but still spend the night in the lap of luxury.

3. Abu Camp Elephant Star Bed – Okavango Delta – Botswana The opportunity to ‘sleep with elephants’ is found nowhere else in Africa. Abu Camp offers a treehouse that overlooks the elephant boma, so you can fall asleep by the contented rumbling & low snores of Africa’s gentle giants.

4. Sanctuary Baines’ Camp Star Bed, Okavango Delta – Botswana This intimate safari camp only offers 6 suites, & each comes with a private deck boasting a romantic ‘sky bed’ & ‘star bath’ – the ideal romantic oasis for couples or honeymooners looking for a unique safari experience.

Bring on the champagne!
