Mysteriously hidden on stilts in the cool, tree tops of the Fever Tree forest, is where you will find our Tree Lodge Rooms.

The heart of this lodge has a magnificent guest area. A restaurant with its enormous fireplace and magical view on giant fever trees, views of passing wildlife, even lit up at night creates a dramatic effect. The swimming pool and bar looks onto the beautiful fishpond and there is a watering hole which is visited daily by families of warthogs and nyala, and is fitted with the perfect loungers for relaxation. With paved pathways leading to twenty four luxuriously appointed thatched roofed rooms facing the fever trees, and each room having its own personal viewing deck; guest can observe the surrounding wilderness in private seclusion.

Each room has an enchanting view of the forest from the bedroom through large glass sliding doors, to ensure that guests are always able to view the splendor outside and is fitted with en-suite bathroom with shower, dressing room, coffee/tea making facilities, bar fridge, mosquito nets, ceiling fan and private viewing deck. Serviced daily by attentive staff. Guests can enjoy the breathtaking expanse of nature at its best while taking a leisurely stroll on various footpaths through the immense fever tree forest and riverbed facing their rooms.

Delicious Pan African cuisine is served at dinner time with the accompanying sounds of the reserve's nightlife and the spectacular views. Mealtimes at Tree Lodge are served at alternate venues, either our Tree Lodge Restaurant with its beautiful wooden finishes, our rustic Boma, or Bush dinner site. The Boma at Tree Lodge is the perfect venue to enjoy dinner under a starry sky and next to a roaring fire. The Bush dinner site is majestically hidden in a spectacular clearing between Fever Trees, with a candle-lit pathway leading to the setting, a truly African bush experience.
