Bona Ntaba Self Catering Tree Houses - Experience the ambiance of South Africa in our tranquil self catering lodge on a private game reserve in the heart of game rich Limpopo Province.  Solitude and serenity surround you in your private tree house chalet as you watch a spectacular sunset over the Mountains.

Bona Ntaba Lodge is a small but unique facility featuring four tree house chalets.  Our camp has 4 tree houses arranged in a row along the ridge facing the mountains and sunset.  Two of our tree houses (one at each end of the row) have their own kitchen building and boma.  Two other tree houses are nearest the central Lounge building which has the large shared catering kitchen and large boma.  Only these two tree houses share this kitchen.  There is also an indoor dining area, lounge, deck, splash pool, and wildlife watering hole at this central building.

Each elevated, simple and stylish wooden tree house cabin is elevated to afford the best view of the bush and the mountains from the private covered balcony.  Inside are either two single beds or a king sized bed.  The tree houses are en suite with a bath tub, sink and toilet inside and an outside shower with breathtaking views of the bush.

Accommodation at Bona Ntaba Self Catering Tree Houses:

Tree Houses with Private Kitchen and Boma:

Guests in our most private tree houses will enjoy a good sized kitchen building equipped with double sink, large refrigerator, a full set of pots and pans, plates, glasses, and utensils. There is a toaster, microwave, burners, and oven. A table inside the kitchen sits next to a large window with bug screening which looks out at the braai area. The private boma has a table, chairs, and large braai stone. This tree house is just like our other tree houses with a wonderful view, deck chairs, en suite bathroom with tub and outside shower.

Shared Kitchen Tree Houses: Couples Tree House and Family Tree House

The Family Tree House has a loft. The loft is large enough to sleep two children who are old enough to climb the ladder and stay safely up high. Linens and mozzy nets are supplied and windows have screening and coverings. There are plenty of electrical outlets.

We have two tree houses which make use of a thatched Central Lodge Building containing the large, fully equipped kitchen and boma with braai. The kitchen contains a refrigerator for each tree house as well as a locked cabinet. It is well equipped with full size oven and stove, microwave, extra sets of burners, and 2 double sinks. Plenty of dishes, tableware, cups, and cooking pots, pans, and implements are provided.

Also in this central building is a tranquil lounge with views to the watering hole, an indoor dining area, a sunset deck, and splash pool. All guests are welcome to use the pool and lounge.
