Chalkleys Treehouse in the Sabi Sand

Guy Aubrey Chalkley once set up camp in a majestic centuries-old Leadwood Tree to escape the predators roaming the plains below. We decided that this would be the ideal place to build the ultimate bush bedroom, and so came to be The Chalkley Treehouse.

A secure and lavish platform under the stars, the treehouse has all the 5-star comforts, but affords an experience as wild as the animals that roam beneath it. Guests are taken to the treehouse at sunset, where drinks and a scrumptious picnic dinner await.

Zebras are just one of the many creatures that roam the plains below at the Chalkley Treehouse

Dusk can be enjoyed relaxing and absorbing the vastness of the bush as it transforms from day to night, before turning in for slumber beneath the incredible night sky

“We had one night in the Chalkley Treehouse, which was out of this world. To see the stars, satellites and ¾ Moon traverse across the sky throughout the night whilst hearing the magical sounds of nature around us is something we’ll cherish forever.” (Tripadvisor)
