About Tree Tops View Lodge
Tree Tops View Lodge is a fully self catering family bush house situated in the Mabalingwe Nature Reserve near Bela Bela. The house was built by a nature loving family and now, you as well can enjoy the bush and its animals.
Self Catering Accommodation
The lodge is not a usual thatched game reserve holiday home, it has a strong European character and its very light and airy. The lodge has four double bedrooms and two bathrooms en suite, a large dining area and fully equipped open kitchen.
The front of the house, the lounge, opens up completely with concertina doors to an open deck with a swimming pool and a braai area. The open plan kitchen, dining area, lounge provides a grand space and becomes part of the outside if all concertina doors are open. Its a perfect getaway for a group of friends or family.
This lodge is regularly visited by several game species and as the deck is raised, you have a fantastic game viewing opportunity and at night superb stargazing. We welcome all our guests with open arms but we do request the highest respect for nature (as well the animals as the bush) and our property.
The Tree Tops View Lodge is not available for parties (matriculation parties, year end functions, birthday parties, bachelor parties etc) as the noise disturbs the neighbors and bush life. This is a place to relax and to enjoy nature.
