We are excited to advise you that as from 1st September guests at Beho Beho will be able to enjoy a wonderful new experience that will certainly enhance their safari and give them an even greater collection of stories to take home with them.
Just for two people, The Treehouse is an optional extra available to all guests who stay for a minimum of four nights at Beho Beho. The Treehouse experience starts in mid afternoon when guests leave the camp on foot, accompanied by one of our armed guides, and walk for approximately two hours through the splendid isolation of the Selous wilderness until they arrive at their home for the night – The Treehouse.
As you can imagine in true Beho Beho style, this is no ordinary ‘sleep out’, this tree house is perched alongside and within a giant ancient leadwood tree overlooking a dry riverbed. Guests will certainly get the ‘sleeping up a tree feeling’ but with a difference – this one comes with a proper double bed swathed in mosquito netting, and an ensuite bathroom complete with flush toilet! There is a choice of either sleeping under the stars or under the cover of a canvas pavilion – the bed comes complete with wheels, fine bed linen and a comfortable duvet – in fact everything one could wish for when sleeping up a tree in the middle of the African wilderness.
Guests will be welcomed with cocktails before being able to take a hot shower on arrival, and as dusk turns to dark will make their way to a clearing for a campfire dinner under the stars entertained and protected by their safari guide.
After a romantic night of star gazing and being entertained by the sounds of the bush, the dawn will bring birdsong and early morning tea, before heading off on foot to see the animals at their most prolific, returning for breakfast under a shade tree where a suitably attired chef will cook up a gourmet breakfast to satisfy the heartiest appetite.
The intrepid guests will complete the experience by either walking or game driving back to camp by safari vehicle to resume the rest of their Beho Beho safari itinerary.
Supplementary cost of The Treehouse will be USD350 per person – fully inclusive. The Treehouse must be prebooked and will not be available to be purchased in the camp.
This kind of option is fraught with local difficulties, rain, heat, dust, mud, insects, animal movements etc etc – so all Treehouse experiences will be operated at the discretion of the senior guide in camp at Beho Beho. The guide will decide which is the most suitable night of the four nights stay that guests will be able to enjoy this activity. If for whatever reasons the guests are not able to participate in this activity a full refund will be given to the booking agent and a complimentary voucher for the Treehouse night in the future will be given to the guests.
