Have you ever imagined lying under the stars in the summer, with the sounds of the lion, hyenas and the hippo serving as the evening's soundtrack?

Well, a place like Lion Sands Game Reserve gives you that opportunity and so much more, while being a guest at the private game reserve.

A haven for those who are fans of the Big Five, this game reserve is home to magnificent wildlife, including Elephant, Leopard, Buffalo, Rhino and Lion - all of which can be viewed on unforgettable game drives or from the comfort of your seat at your treehouse.

The cool part about Lion Sands' treehouse is that like the game reserve's other treehouses - including Chalkley Treehouse and Kingston Treehouse (Sabi Sand), and Tinyeleti Treehouse (Kruger National Park) - are booked in conjunction with your accommodation.

All you have to do is pack an overnight bag with your essentials, while leaving your other belongings back in your room at camp.

Some of the activities on offer at the Lion Sands' game reserve include bush walks, helicopter rides over Blyde Canyon, game drives with a glass of bubbles while watching the sun set, and dinner by your treehouse with nature's beautiful background.

Rates and more information regarding the treehouses in the Lion Sands' Game Reserve are available on their website.
