KRUGER PARK GAME SAFARI ENQUIRY BOOKING FORM
Guests at the Treehouse Lodge are adventurous and young at heart. They are prepared to forfeit certain luxuries in the pursuit of a real African bush experience. They certainly are not afraid of frogs and spiders. The Treehouse Lodge is unique and caters for tourists of very differing financial means.
Guests at the Game Lodge are generally more mature and are accustomed to simple luxuries. Of course they are still in the bush and may also encounter frogs and spiders, but these are unlikely to be in the chalets. Guests at the Game Lodge appreciate the compactness of the camp as well as the easy accessibility of all features and amenities.
The Game Lodge is electrically fenced as elephant are common. On the other hand, the animals at the Treehouse Lodge are free to move throughout the camp. Nyala and buffalo are often seen grazing below the treehouses and outside the chalets.
