Love Written in the Stars

A million-star experience... Lion Sands Treehouses set you in the middle of big landscapes, globed by even bigger skies, their lights twinkling down to the horizon. Below, the stillness is punctuated by animals’ whistles, huffs, and growls… carried on the wind. There are few such experiences left on earth that capture the romance of the untamed and untainted. Arrive at sunset to a picnic, spend the dusk hours spotting wildlife out in the bush, and fall asleep counting shooting stars. This is not simply a sleep out – this is an adventure with Africa, one-on-one.

Chalkey Treehouse is located in Lion Sands Sabi Sand, for guests staying at Ivory Lodge and River Lodge, the original hideout. The treehouse has been built on the site where their ancestor, Guy Aubrey Chalkley made camp in a centuries-old leadwood tree. Since, it has been taken to an altogether different level of comfort. But the absence of Wi-Fi and the light of lanterns enhance a very real experience of Africa.


Kingston Treehouse is located in Lion Sands Sabi Sand, for guests staying at Ivory Lodge and River Lodge. Built beyond an outcrop of boulders, across a small drawbridge, Kingston is a couple or family’s private vantage over Africa, opening out in front of you. Sheltered by its wood and glass structure, you can savour this faraway experience in comfort – complete with feather beds and a hot shower.


Tinyeleti Treehouse is located in Lion Sands Kruger Park, for guests staying at Tinga Lodge and Narina Lodge. Tinyeleti (meaning ‘many stars’) is a dreamy escape between the heavens and earth for couples and families, alike. This location sees the passage of many animals, drawn to the water in the coolness of early evening and morning. Watch on from your bed, shower, or breakfast table…
