Your honeymoon only happens once, so why not make it the most unique, romantic, over-the-top trip of your life? I know just the place to do it, too—Sabi Sands Game Reserve in South Africa!

Situated in this vast reserve is the Lion Sands Game Reserve, which features five quaint lodges and three treehouses. The lodges are absolutely fantastic. They’re luxurious and cozy, integrating the serene wilderness into the décor. But what’s really unique and romantic are their treehouses.

Below, I’ve spotlighted all three of the Lion Sands Game Reserve treehouses:

Kingston Treehouse: Just imagine it: After an exhilarating game drive in Lion Sands Game Reserve, arrive at the Kingston Treehouse, arguably the most romantic and secluded retreat in the world.

Propped above lush treetops The Kingston Treehouse overlooks miles upon miles of untouched wilderness and is located 5 minutes from the main Lions Sands Lodge, offering guests the opportunity to delight in pure seclusion.

As you arrive at the treehouse after your game drive, settle in for a couple’s massage beneath a star-studded sky, followed by a candlelit dinner for two on your private deck, overlooking the wildlife-abundant treetops. Then, after a delectable meal, complimented by a bottle of champagne, its time to relax in your plush bed, with the soft sounds and aromas of nature lulling you to sleep.

The experience is truly unparalleled by anything else on earth . . .

Chalkley Treehouse: Now picture this: After tracking a group of lion cubs and their mother, you retreat to the Chalkley Treehouse where you watch the sun melt behind the horizon. You enjoy a glass of champagne as you watch from your private, open-air bush bedroom, surrounded by lanterns and candles.

After sipping on your champagne, your private butler and staff set up your bush dinner beneath the stars, offering you five-star service throughout your spectacular meal in the treetops.

After dinner you relax on your bed, soaking in the soothing sounds, scents, and sights of the African bush with your loved one. The experience of being completely immersed in nature without any exterior sounds and sights from civilization is an extremely rare and highly-rewarding treat.

In the early morning, you are picked up by your personal ranger for a morning game drive and afterward, enjoy a delicious breakfast in the bush.

Tinyeleti Treehouse: After a revitalizing massage for two on the sprawling deck of the Tinyeleti Treehouse, you enjoy a glass of wine as you overlook the The Sabie River. As you reminisce about the day’s exciting wildlife sightings, you notice a family of elephant at the riverside and slightly further back you see a hyena walking. As you enjoy the wildlife show, a delectable tapas-style dinner is being prepared for you on your private deck.

Your private butler tends to your every need as you and your spouse find comfort in complete solitude, looking up at a star-studded sky, and listening to the distant sound of a male lion grunt and roar.
