Description

Kruger National Park has competition when it comes to witnessing exotic wildlife. Catch a glimpse of 'the big five' – that is, the lion, buffalo, elephant, leopard, and rhino.

Kruger is a remarkable 20,000 square miles large, and home to 114 species of reptile, 507 species of bird, and 147 types of mammal that have made Kruger such an iconic part of Africa. There is as huge a diversity in the landscape as well, from the wide sweeping currents of the Crocodile river, to the thorny grazelands.

For five nights you will surround yourself with wildlife deep in their natural habitat. One of those nights will put you in a secluded treehouse tucked into The Bush. These treehouses were built specifically to capture the vastness of the South African landscape. Timber-framed in construction, the treehouses afford an unimpeded view of its wild surroundings, while providing the ultimate lavish comfort. The sunsets are glorious, and thanks to the treehouse's remote location, a multitude of stars are visible each night.

In addition to your treehouse stay, three nights will be spent at the Lion Sands River Lodge, deemed by Condé Nast Traveller as the best in Africa. Each suite at the lodge is amongst the Kruger wilderness and at the very height of luxury, with grandiose open plan interiors, thatched roofs, riverside views of the Sabi River, on hand spa therapists, and safari tours commencing from your very doorstep.
