The Camp – JackalBerry Tree House

The Jackal-Berry tree house is built around three live African ebony trees (Diospyros mespiliformis) with unspoilt views out across a dambo and lagoon system which is regularly visited by elephant and giraffe.

‘We had the luxury of having several different experiences –also being able to visit the Okavango Delta, Chobe National Park, the Kruger area and a reserve on the east coast of South Africa — and we enjoyed the differences at all of the places. But I think if I could only go to one place with the knowledge I have now, I would choose Zambia and the Flatdogs Jackalberry Treehouse. It is truly an exceptional accommodation!’

The tree house has three main decks which are around eight feet off the ground with wooden stairways to reach the spacious sitting area and open-plan bedrooms. Each bedroom has open air en suite bathroom facilities, with hot shower, WC and basin. One bedroom has a king-sized bed, the other bedroom has either two single beds or these can be converted to a king-sized bed if there are two couples sharing the house. If there are 4 of you, we’ll provide a private safari vehicle and guide for your whole stay.A comfy sofa, easy chairs and floor cushions on the middle deck are ideal for watching the game wandering past the house, oblivious to your presence. A fridge and bar are provided in the tree house as well as tea- and coffee-making facilities. If honeymoon couples and romantic souls fancy a candlelit dinner alone under the stars, we are happy to oblige.

Guests at the tree house are provided with a hand-held radio, as the secluded nature of the house means that a vehicle is needed to transport you up and down from the main camp. The tree house is also on mains electricity and has 3-pin square plug sockets for recharging cameras and batteries. Since it’s open to the stars above and has no roof, the treehouse is available only during the dry season, from 5th April to 15th November each year.
