Yes, really - the wild animals were just wandering around - giraffes, zebras, ostrich. A marvelous opportunity to really feel you were one with nature. The Tree House Lodge is a lovely place to stay - very comfortable and a great staff. It is close to all the game viewing areas in addition to its own reserve. We would go...

Just came back from another great stay at Bona Ntaba. Since the last time I have been there a new tree house has been built with it's own kitchen and boma. This area is perfect if you're looking for something with a little more privacy. Sitting out on the deck by the pool for Breakfast - lots of Zebra and...

Bona Ntaba was the home away from home for our small group of cousins and friends to enjoy a full-cater safari. And what a home it was! This isn’t 5 stars of ‘hotel posh’ like a 60- inch flat screen or marble walls. But who on a retreat from stress needs all that? In fact the rooms are lovely -...

There were 6 family and friends in our group so we used 3 of the 4 tree houses that are available on this property. Each tree house had unique and homey touches that made us feel right at home. I especially loved the shower--good hot water, good pressure and outdoors! *there is an option for indoor showering as well. The...

We have been there during August 2016. Perfect place, stunning atmosphere, and everything is great. You have an incomparable view from your house but the best part is the shower....there's nothing like doing a shower watching the southafrican bush!!! It's a little bit cold during the night, but it was winter, so i guess it is really hot during summer....

We came here not knowing what to expect and were completely overwhelmed. The reserve has numerous different types of accommodation but everything is so far from each other that it feels completely isolated. The tree houses themselves are also well spaced apart so you cannot hear or see the other ones. The tree house itself is raised quite high, level...

We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. We think the views from the tree house and the nice breeze this brings is one of the best features of our lodge - we did not plan the incredible view from the outside shower; it just happened that way. We would certainly welcome you back in the...

My wife and I came to Bona Ntaba on a photographic safari in May 2016. Our visit there was full of scheduled game drives and other activities, and our event was catered by the facility.
