4 Reasons Why You Should Stay in a Luxury Treehouse During Your Safari

Nestled safely right in the heart of African wilderness, a night in a treehouse is truly a thrilling way to experience the intoxication and romance of the savannah.


At Let’s Go Travel, we know that the perfect African safari is all about incorporating unique and memorable experiences into your itinerary and treehouses can be a really fun and romantic addition to your trip.

Here are 4 reasons why you must take a break from staying in a safari lodge to spend a night under the stars:

1. You Can Relax While The Animals Come To You

Most treehouses are built to overlook a floodlit waterhole and salt lick, which attracts a host of awesome wildlife. That means you can unwind and relax on the hotel’s balcony or deck with a drink or dinner and enjoy the most incredible sights East Africa has to offer.

2. You’ll Get to Experience The Intoxicating Savannah Nightlife

One of the most unique and best parts of staying in a tree hotel is that you’ll be able to experience the sights, sounds and aroma of night wildlife right from the safety and luxury of your room or hotel deck. Because most water holes are lit up, you’re sure never to miss a thing!

3. You’ll Never Miss a Moment

Some luxury treehouses, such as The Ark, have a night guard that buzzes your room when particular animals approach the waterhole, such as a lion or leopard, so you can be sure that you’ll never miss an animal sighting.

4. You’ll Get Closer to the Animals

Many tree houses have a ground level bunker for their visitors – the perfect hideout for the discerning photographer. From this vantage point, the wildlife will be only yards away, and pictures can be taken through view holes in complete safety.

Where to Stay
East Africa offers visitors a number of tree hotels to stay at, where the views are incredible and visitors can enjoy an intimate experience of nature, while maintaining the same comfort and elegance as a 5-star lodge.

These include:

The Ark: Resembling, and named after, Noah’s Ark, this tree hotel comprises of three decks that provides a superb location to enjoy the sights, smells, and sounds of East African wildlife.
