A unique African experience and game reserve accommodation

The sound of wildlife in the background, the rustling of the African trees and the twinkling of the stars, are but some of the natural beauty that surrounds our Tree Lodges.

The Lodges, which are mysteriously and uniquely hidden on stilts in the cool, magnificent beauty of the Fever Tree Forest, will provide you with a relaxed and serene getaway. You can choose from a standard room, which is perfect for a romantic weekend with your loved one; an executive room - ideal for smaller families and honeymooners with their spaciousness and airy feel, or our inter-leading rooms - also suitable for small families and provide an awesome view of the Reserve from the private decks.

Follow the paved pathways through the forest to the beauty of the Tree Lodges - consisting of twenty-four perfectly designed and luxuriously finished thatched roofed rooms that will afford you the opportunity of viewing the surrounding landscape and frolicking wildlife right from your own private deck in complete seclusion. Pop the kettle on in the morning and step into the fresh air of the Ubizane Reserve - you may even be lucky enough to see a kudu springing by.

If comfort is what you’re after, as well as beautiful scenery, then our tree lodges are perfect for you. Each room has been carefully laid out with an en-suite bathroom with shower, a dressing room, air-conditioning and mosquito nets for your comfort on those warmer nights, coffee/tea facilities and a bar fridge.

We have free Wi-Fi available to all guests. At our reception, you will find a hairdryer and safe for your use, please ask our receptionist for these should you require them. We run a laundry service at an extra cost to you, so if you are staying for a lengthy period and would like some clothes washed, please don’t hesitate to ask.

If all of the above is not enough to convince you, our delicious pan-African cuisine will. Dinner is carefully prepared every night by our in-house chefs, in true African style and taste. Tease your palate with multiple flavours and textures that are true to Africa and all her variety.

Dinner is served at various spots around the Tree Lodges - you can choose where you will spend this tasty time. Choose from our Tree Lodge restaurant with its beautiful wooden finishes and intimate atmosphere; our rustic boma, which is the idyllic place to dine under the African sky with its glimmering stars and a roaring fire to warm you up; or our bush dinner site which has been carefully hidden in a spectacular clearing between some of the fever trees - the path will lead you by candlelight to this uniquely African setting.

Tree Lodge swimming pool

With the very recent droughts that South Africa has faced and even more so in Zululand, we are extremely mindful of the amount of water that we as citizens of Zululand and of South Africa as a whole, use on a daily basis. It is because of this that we recently closed down the Tree Lodge swimming pool to limit our water usage.

 

Besides this, we have found that a lot of visitors would prefer to use the larger pool at the Safari Lodge for more privacy and relaxation. In place of the swimming pool, we have a created a fun, family area for relaxing and ultimate sun soaking. You will find tables, chairs and umbrellas to keep you cosy - why not pack a picnic with the family and enjoy the view. If swimming is what you are after, you can take an easy 500 meter stroll across to the Safari Lodge, where you will find a lovely big pool for your pleasure, together with a spacious lounge area to sit and watch some telly - or even better, gaze out at the beauty that is Ubizane Nature Reserve.
