The Tree House

A little closer to the main area of Tongabezi, The Tree House is probably the most secluded of all of the lodge’s houses. Reached via a hidden path, it is set further down the cliff face than The Nut House, so that at high water its lower levels are almost beside the water.

The Tree House is completely open-fronted and while a mosquito net helps to keep the insects out, it doesn’t spoil the remarkable experience of waking up to the sight and sound of the Zambezi River running past your ‘window’.

Constructed on three levels, The Tree House has the bedroom in the middle, with a couple of steps down to a lounge area, complete with reclining chairs and a sofa. A private dinner here is well worth requesting!

The top level houses the bathroom, with a large sunken bath, a shower and his and hers washbasins suspended over the water – not to mention a ‘loo with a great view’.
