About Bona Ntaba Tree House Lodge

Bona Ntaba Self Catering Tree Houses is a unique facility featuring tree house chalets. Two tree houses have their own kitchen and boma and two share the Large Kitchen and Boma at our central shared lodge building. We are located in the bush on a wildlife conservancy which is home to giraffe, zebras, eland, waterbuck, buffalo, ostrich and many other free-roaming animals. Enjoy the tranquil quiet of our nights and the relaxing pace of the day or many of the nearby attractions and activities.

Each of our 4 thatch roof tree houses is elevated to afford the best view of the bush and the mountains. There is a private covered balcony with views of the mountains, while the inside offers a king-size bed (twin on request). The tree houses are en-suite with baths, sinks and toilets inside and outside showers with breathtaking views of the bush. The Family Tree House has a loft which is large enough to sleep two children - must be aged 8 and up to safely climb the ladder. Linen and mosquito nets are supplied and windows have screening and coverings. Each tree house has plenty of electrical points and a personal safe. The views from your private viewing deck are enchanting and the symphony of the bush will sing you to sleep.

When preparing meals, each of the kitchens are fully equipped containing a refrigerator, an oven, a microwave, burners , sinks, plus all of the linen and kitchen implements and dishes you will need.

The sunset deck is the perfect spot for sundowners before a braai and for watching the sunset from in the splash pool. The lounge also has a great view and is a nice place to relax or dine.

              We came here not knowing what to expect and were completely overwhelmed. The reserve has numerous different types of accommodation but everything is so far from each other that it feels completely isolated. The tree houses themselves are also well spaced apart so you cannot hear or see the other ones. The tree house itself is raised quite high, level with the tree tops so you have magnificent views. The house is immaculately put together with the most incredible bed, bath and outdoor shower. It was so quiet and peaceful with different animals walking around, we never wanted to leave. We will...
