Pezulu Tree House Game Lodge
Realize your childhood dream …and sleep and in a treehouse.
Pezulu Tree House Lodge is situated in a small private game reserve only 40 minutes from Orpen gate of Kruger National Park.
Pezulu offers accommodation in 8 unique treehouses and can accommodate a maximum of 25 guests.
Each tree house is different and has been designed to blend perfectly with the environment whilst maintaining an element of luxury. Each unit has a spacious balcony where you can view herds of animals passing below or view a giraffe eye to eye. Solid wooden walkways lead high into your private tree house. All our tree houses are en-suite with an outdoor shower overlooking the bush and/or a bath. They are supplied with running (hot) water, electricity, tea and coffee facilities, electronic safes, overhead fans, heaters and mosquito nets. They are far away from each other and hidden from view to ensure privacy. Pezulu has 3 family tree houses which are able to accommodate a family with up to 5 children. We can also put one or two beds in the parents’ bedroom for very young children who don’t want to sleep alone.
Children love our tree houses!
