Sleeping in a tree house is one of those childhood pleasures that we will never get too old for. Trees are silent giants; a calming, steadfast presence in the wilderness and sleeping in one is one way of getting back to nature. It’s also the ideal way to satisfy that inner child who is aching for a treed sleepover, but with a luxurious touch this time.
At Tongabezi luxury safari lodge in Zambia, the tree house is a favourite amongst the accommodation options due to its uniqueness, comfort and its soul warming views. It’s first opened in the early 1990’s and has just been spoilt to a “Tongabezi style revamp”. Perfection has been improved upon through the architectural vision and creative construction management of Hanoni Shlomo Momo. The Tongabezi Tree house is now open to visitors once again in all its fresh glory.
The new tree house is naturally set gripping to the trunk of a giant African Ebony tree in its elevated and stable position. It also leans back onto the bedrock banks of the Zambezi River making it awe-inspiringly placed. Its secluded location is simply dreamy and its deck sprawls out, affording guests unparallel views of the Zambezi River. Tongabezi describes this haven in the tree by saying, “… the Tree House invokes exotic day dreams. All the inclusive Tongabezi activities are available… but this house is so much part of the surroundings that you can experience the beauty and majesty of Zambia without setting a foot outside.” Why anyone ever leaves is beyond us.
Inside the tree house, be prepared to be immersed in timeless, fusion décor which is natural and bold. An African undercurrent runs through the fabrics, materials and designs used as well as the artworks on the walls. The king sized bed and Victorian styled bath whisper of luxury and tranquillity. A personal valet service is part of the experience at the Tongabezi Tree House but guests can also help themselves to drinks from the fridge or coffee bar at any time.
Perched in the tree house guests have the choice of twelve optimum view spots to relax at and drink in the sights and sounds that surround the private canopy abode. The tree is calling so allow your inner-child to go to it and spend some quality time in the new Tongabezi tree House.
