Tintswalo Safari Lodge has introduced a new sleep-out experience for guests to sleep under the same stars which the Shangaan people named the Manyeleti after. There is no better spot within this mesmerising ‘place of stars' to marvel at nature and drift to sleep under the Milky Way in safety, privacy and luxury, surrounded by the sounds of the wild.
The magnificent new treehouse is built under the wide crown of a Weeping Boer Bean tree within the fenced boundary of Tintswalo’s Manor House camp in the Manyeleti Nature Reserve, within the Greater Kruger region. During the day, it provides guests with a bird’s eye view of the waterhole and its all-day, armchair-safari action with frequent visits from various wildlife such as elephants, buffalo, zebras and many more, who come for a cool drink throughout the day.
At sunset the African bush comes alive with nocturnal creatures and as the night sky grows darker, the treehouse is magically transformed into a romantic, open-air sleep-out deck for two. Two inviting armchairs create an intimate lounge space for nightcaps and late-night conversations, next to a luxurious king size bed dressed in the finest linen, draped in protective insect netting and lit by the warm glow of lanterns, with easy access to bathroom facilities and modern conveniences. An unforgettable experience awaits the lucky few who wish each other a good night under these star-studded skies in the heart of the bush.
The Tintswalo Treehouse experience may be booked as an add-on experience by Tintswalo Manor House guests. Subject to availability when the Manor House is not occupied, it is also available to guests from the main camp at Tintswalo Safari Lodge. (Cost: R2500 per person, including a romantic dinner for two)
