This was my first trip to S Africa and I wasn't sure what to expect. We stayed at 3 different game lodges and by far, Bona Ntaba was my favorite. The tree houses offer privacy, amazing views, comfortable beds and the option of an outdoor shower. I can't tell you how wonderful it was to shower under the stars! And...

My tree house was so inviting, beautifully built around an iconic African tree, with the window treatments allowing the outside in, up so high to catch the African breeze and the sounds of the bush at night. I loved the outdoor shower on the sunny days, nothing like showering with the sun shining on you. My afternoons sitting on the...
