If you've ever been on safari before, you know how cool it is to experience wild animals up close. It is even cooler when you can stay in a national park or game reserve, and take this daring experience to a new level!
The Ngala Treehouse at the Kruger National Park in South Africa, Andbeyond's unique accommodation, is not located in a specific camp or on the site of a lodge.... but in the middle of the wilderness of the Ngala Private Game Reserves, near the Kruger National Park. Only a small fence surrounds the treehouse, bringing you that much closer to the surrounding nature.
This four-story building was only opened in January, 2020. Thanks to the large window fronts and an open construction, you can observe the surroundings from any room and with a little luck, maybe catch a glimpse of lions, leopards or hyenas.
While luxury and total seclusion await you on site, cell phone networks and WiFi will not. And in addition to being totally connection-free, there are also no artificial lights installed, so you can admire an incredibly beautiful starry sky in the evening, sans lights.
On the ground floor you will find a kitchen and dining area, one level up there is a bathroom, a shower, and dressing area, and on the third floor is the bedroom. From each level you have the opportunity to observe the surroundings, because of the large windows. At the top there is also a roof terrace, which you can use for wildlife viewing, sunset admiring - or as a place to sleep!
Sounds wonderful, doesn't it? Unfortunately, it is also extremely expensive. A night in the Treehouse costs a little more than $500 per person per night, but a once-in-a-lifetime experience like this just might be worth the cost!
