(TMU) — With all of the hectic routines, clogged streets, and pollution of urban life, sometimes it’s not only a good idea to seek out a nature trip, it’s also a necessity to ensure the health of one’s mind, body, and spirit.
One such place to escape the daily grind and enjoy a brilliant oasis of wilderness is Ngala Private Game Reserve in South Africa, which is nestled just between the Timbavati Nature Reserve and Kruger National Park.
The sprawling unfenced private reserve spans 36,000 acres and allows for an experience of unparalleled luxury and absolute peace in the heart of South Africa’s wilderness. With elephants and other exotic creatures roaming Ngala, you will find a unique sanctuary that is not only awe-inspiring, but also offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be one with mother nature.
Guests stay in a four-level treehouse that offers two sleeping areas filled with king-sized beds, including a sleeping area that lies under a retractable awning so that you can sleep under the stars in the open air. The treehouse accommodations also offer a coffee station to begin your day, as well as a fully-stocked bar where you can treat yourself to a refreshing cocktail along with a range of delicious tapas.
Those who stay at Ngala shouldn’t expect to be able to work remotely or kill time on social media—with no access to Wi-Fi, guests will instead find ample time to absorb the natural beauty on the reserve and take part in around-the-clock game drives, safari tours, and bush walks with a corps of dedicated, experienced rangers.
Those who are interested in staying at the treehouse will be able to do so by booking a trip to the Ngala Safari Lodge or Ngala Tented Camp. The Ngala Treehouse Experience costs roughly $560, or ZAR 8,500, per night.
