Are you thinking about a family holiday to Africa? Make sure you put Zambia on your list because it’s beautiful and offers a diversity of experiences not to mention some rather special accommodations and our favourite is Jackalberry Treehouse.
Jackalberry Treehouse at Flatdogs Camp, South Luangwa in Zambia is a stunning and very affordable family safari experience.
This fantastic treehouse is built around three African ebony trees that are regularly visited by elephants and giraffe who graze on its leaves. You have endless views across a dambo and lagoon and space to savour with the family.
‘The treehouse is rather secluded’
From the moment you arrive with the family (assuming there are at least 4 of you a private safari vehicle and guide is yours for the entire duration of your stay), service is exceptional and the treehouse experience something magical. You get a hand-held radio because the treehouse is rather secluded so a vehicle is required when you want to move up and down from main camp.
Who needs to move once you are in your treehouse though? It’s got three decks around eight feet off the ground with a spacious sitting area and open plan bedrooms. One bedroom has a king-sized bed and the other two singles which can be converted to a king-sized bed if it’s two couples sharing the house.
Jackalberry Treehouse is open to the stars so your evenings are just as spectacular as your safari. Private dinners can be set up on your deck and a fridge and bar plus tea and coffee making facilities provide creature service comforts.
Safari experience with kids is focused on game drives and with your private guide and vehicle you go where the wildlife takes you morning and afternoon!
Jackalberry Treehouse is open during the dry season from early April to mid-November each year. It combines beautifully with a property like Tafika or its Chikoko Trails because walking is then the highlight.
More on that in another blog so stay tuned.
