Lion Sands Treehouses

The African landscape stretches as far as the eye can see at Lion Sands, and we knew we had to find a special place to capture and enjoy its vastness and splendour.

• Recovery & Rebuilding Levy

- In order to recover and rebuild our people's livelihoods without risking the survival of the business (which remains in a vulnerable state, trading in a volatile and unpredictable market) we have implemented a Recovery & Rebuilding Levy of R115.00 per person per day. This will go directly and exclusively to our staff. Almost all businesses have been negatively impacted by COVID-19 in some way or another, but ours and our industries have regrettably been at the forefront. To ensure survival so we can carry on preserving & protecting these wilderness areas and keep delivering enriching experiences to our guest, we had to drastically reduce one of our largest cost components

- our payroll. During this calendar year, our staff will earn on average just 55% of their 2019 income. This has, and will continue to have, a lasting devastating impact on them, their families, and their communities.

The African landscape stretches as far as the eye can see at Lion Sands, and we knew we had to find a special place to capture and enjoy its vastness and splendour. Guy Aubrey Chalkley once set up camp in a majestic centuries-old Leadwood Tree to escape predators roaming the plains below. We decided that this would be the ideal place to build the ultimate bush bedroom, the Chalkley Treehouse.

The tree house is a secure and lavish platform under the African stars, with all the comforts that a guest can experience at a five star safari lodge. We take our guests to the tree house at sunset, where drinks and a scrumptious picnic dinner await them. The hours of African dusk can be enjoyed relaxing and absorbing the vastness of the bushveld as it transforms from day to night, before turning in for slumber beneath the incredible night sky.
