The remaining 9 treehouses are not in trees per se but are built on stilts within the tree canopy and are located in the gallery forest. Three treehouses overlook an illuminated waterhole, often frequented by our resident buffalo herd while nine treehouses are discreetly nestled in gallery forest along the river. Each treehouse is equipped with beds and linen, soap and towels, overhead fan, mosquito nets and wooden viewing deck.
