On our last day at Lion Sands I was surprised we got a last game drive before we checked out. We had already seen the Big Five in the previous days but we still haven’t seen the elusive zebra. Lo and behold the first animal we saw that chilly morning were young zebras.
We just stayed in our truck for several minutes watching the young zebras play. They crossed in front of our truck back and forth.
After seeing more animals our guide brought us to see Lion Sand’s Kingstown Treehouse. It doesn’t seem impressive from this view right?
Around the corner was my first glimpse of the all-glass treehouse and the incredibly open bathroom.
Each time we leave our truck our guide Michael brings down his rifle for our safekeeping.
The treehouse has a big bed, a bathroom and large deck with an incredible view.
Can you picture yourself lounging here with some wine and snacks and enjoying the view and whatever birds or animals you will see?
It was just my luck a white langur monkey perched on a post right in front of me.
Here’s a video I shot of the monkey eating fruit. So adorable!
I looked for the shower head and saw it up peeking through the lattice roof.
We asked permission if we can use the toilet since it had running water. What ensued was the funniest moment of our trip. We used towels for privacy and couldn’t stop laughing until we all cried.
We all took turns behind the wall of towels. 😀
When we were done Michael closed up the treehouse by raising the walkway. I guess it’s to ensure no animals can walk in specially those with four legs.
This is how Kingstown Treehouse looks all gussied up. Photos from Lion Sands’ website. Beautiful eh? Glamping at its finest.
We all really enjoyed our four day safari experience at Lion Sands Private Game Reserve. It was a big check in most of our bucket lists. I highly recommend going on a safari at least once in your life. I hope I was able to share with you what to expect on a private safari. Check out my other safari posts.
